* That means three House Democrats didn’t vote. They’re missing Rep. Jaime Andrade, who is ill with COVID-19. Checking on roll call.

…Adding… Rep. Lance Yednock voted “Present.” Rep. Kelly Cassidy did not vote.

    A new day in Illinois politics. Much work to do.

    Cassidy, a real profile in courage.

    The new era is here, on a historic day for the Black Caucus and passage of major criminal justice reform.

    The hard work lies ahead.


    Madigan may no longer be speaker, but regardless of what he does in the future, his experience and advice will be invaluable.


    Passing legislation is only one part of the puzzle.

    Maybe the proceedings needed to be translated into pig Latin for Lance Yednock

    Anyone have any insight on why Cassidy didn’t vote? Or an educated guess?

    My educated guess is that Cassidy is not comfortable voting for a man with credible allegations of violence against women in his past.

    You apparently don’t know anything about Jim Sweeney.

    In politics, the least risky path is voting against something that passes (or in favor of something that fails). Now if Welch’s tenure is a disaster or if more skeletons come to light, Cassidy can say it’s not on her. Keeps her clean for a speaker run of her own at some point.

    Profiles in Courage Award to: Rep. Kelly Cassidy.
