One of a Kind

Kenneth Dunkin (D-Chicago, natch) was the sole member of the Illinois House to vote against prohibiting state officeholders from plastering their names on every sign they can get their hands on.

That’s right: It was Dunkin vs. 109 of his colleagues.

“The legislation,” the Sun-Times explains, “stems from the $480,000 purchase and installation of 32 signs bearing Blagojevich’s name promoting I-Pass lanes along the Illinois tollway system. The signs were installed in the midst of the governor’s 2006 re-election campaign.”

Dunkin is an obscure legislator, but he could become a favorite here at Division Street, given that this is already his second appearance here.

You can hear Dunkin explain himself here (via Rich Miller’s Capitol Fax Blog).

Here’s where the unfortunate constituents of Dunkin live:

    What a ridiculously, gerrymandered district!
    Seven miles long & about half a mile wide.
    No wonder it’s “represented” by such a tool!
