The $1 Million Appeal 05.29.2007

This article has been making the rounds, but basically, the governor of Illinois spend around $1,000,000 in an effort to appeal a law banning the sale of violent or sexually explicit video games to minors.

A law that was obviously unconstitutional.

What’s worse, the $1 million came from programs unrelated to the appeal:

The governor raided funds throughout state government to pay for the litigation. Some of the areas money was taken from included the public health department, the state’s welfare agency and even the economic development department.

If I lived in Illinois, I know who I wouldn’t be voting for next term. I also know who would be receiving lots of angry letters.
