Rauner's Blago Mascot: Not Lifelike Enough?


Rod Blagojevich doesn't have the same choices available to him as you do.

Given all his Blago talk, it was only a matter of time before Bruce Rauner phased out the Quinnochio get-up and had someone don a mask of the helmet-haired ex-Illinois governor-turned-prison inmate, Rod Blagojevich.

Rich Miller at Capitol Fax has posted a picture of a Rauner advocate wearing a busted Blagojevich mask and a junky poster scribbled in the flowery handwriting of a lovesick tween. "I GOT SUBPEONA PROBLEMS TOO," the sign reads.

Way to spell subpoena wrong, Bizarro Blago. (The orange jumpsuit is a nice touch, however.)
