Illinois Senatorial Republican Candiate Jack Ryan
I’m listening to Illinois Republican Senatorial candidate Jack Ryan hang himself on WBEZ Chicago Public Radio. Asked several times in various ways, Ryan won’t flatly deny the allegations that he took his wife to sex clubs at least three times and forced her to have sex in front of other people. Granted this has nothing to do with whether or not he would be a good Senator, but I think his candidacy is dead in the water. I was already of the opinion that Barack Obama was going to win but now he’s going to win by an even bigger margin. I just don’t think the voters of Illinois are going to give Mr. Ryan a pass. If he is of the opinion that the allegations are trivial, why try to keep the divorce records sealed? I just don’t buy the argument that he was trying to protect his son. Divorce proceedings can get quite ugly, but I think there is some truth to the allegations. If they weren’t true, he’d deny them so he could try and save his chances of actually winning the open Senate seat.
