Topinka’s last ad against Blago in 2006. She knew.

When Illinois’ Republican State Treasurer Judy Baar Topinka challenged not-so-popular Dem Governor Rod Blagojevich in 2006, she lost by 10 points. The Illinois electorate so wanted to vote Democrat that they got this — from the Daley, Obama, Rahmbo, Blago Democrat machine — as described in Topinka’s final political ad.
