Oh wow, talk about the irony of this mailer by Scott Lee Cohen. If you need a refresher, Cohen was the Democratic lieutenant governor nominee who was forced to drop out of the race. Now he's running for governor as an independent. Apparently his campaign has been putting up a lot of signs in mostly minority -- black -- areas of Chicagoland.
Why the irony? Well didn't we see on CapFax yesterday that a couple of Black ministers have come out and said that Cohen offered them cash money if they supported him in his bid?
UPDATE 1:39 PM -- Well the Cohen campaign has responded to one of the minister's -- one Rev. Gregory Lee -- allegations. Cohen's finance director Kelly Tarrant calls Rev. Lee "an extortionist." Found on the Capitol Fax, where Rich Miller linked to this post.
