(Springfield, IL) — June 21, 2010. Honk, honk. Beep, beep. Vrooooom, vroooom.
Disgraced former Democratic Lt. Governor candidate Scott Lee Cohen‘s clown car campaign has arrived in Springfield to file his candidate petitions to run for governor as an independent.
Cohen seems to have found a 130,000 other clowns to fill the show’s tent.
From the Associated Press ….
Scott Lee Cohen plans to file his petitions with the Illinois State Board of Elections to run as independent for governor.

Could somebody, please, throw a net over this guy?
