Scott Lee Cohen’s descent into Illinois politics started when he put together a group called “Rod Must Resign,” just before former Gov. Rod Blagojevich decided to go ahead with the nomination of Roland Burris to replace Barack Obama’s senate seat.

Now Cohen, owner of a cleaning supply company and a community activist, is running for Illinois Lieutenant Governor. The top two items on his agenda are fixing the state’s ethics and budget crisis.
