New Illinois Governor Loves Teabagging

News

Early this morning, inWonkette's Daily Briefing, we had this to say about Blago's replacement: "There’s a new Illinois governor, right? And he is 'squeaky clean.' So god only knows what kind of kinky stuff will bring this guy down." Now we know: New Illinois Governor Pat Quinn is one of the original practitioners of the political sex-creep stunt of "tea-bagging."


Jesus, we knew it would be bad, but we didn't know how bad:

He has built a reputation for political stunts; three years ago, he urged utility customers to mail tea bags with their payments to protest rate hikes.

Goddammit just shut the hell up.

Since 1999, there have been more than 100 plots or actual attacks influenced by Columbine. MoJo national affairs editor Mark Follman notes,

And those are just the cases for which there is some kind of public record: In talking with law enforcement and mental health sources who work to prevent such attacks, I've learned of dozens more Columbine-influenced threats that never made the news.
