After Gun Violation, Sen. Trotter Out of Race for Congress

-By Warner Todd Huston

State Senator Donnie Trotter is dropping his bid for Congress.

Trotter expected to be a shoo-in when the Democrats met to anoint the candidate who would replace disgraced Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. earlier this month. But instead of picking Trotter, the cabal chose no one.

The many candidates will have to fight it out among themselves with no public nod.

But that aside, Trotter has had all sorts of problems with chickens coming home to roost and such.

For one he was caught at O’Hare airport trying to bring a gun aboard a plane. That got him in a spate of trouble and also revealed that he has a fake security guard job — a “job” that was given to him by a Democrat supporter in order to allow him to carry a gun around.

Naturally, Trotter is a virulent anti-gun nut even as he’s used political connections to be allowed to carry a concealed weapon himself. What’s good for Donnie Trotter is bad for we the voters, I guess.

Then, the Sun-Times reported that he tried to block the state from recovering $1.25 million stolen by a south suburban police chief who is now under indictment. Why did Trotter try to head off this effort? former Country Club Hills Police Chief Regina Evans is an African American and identity politics is thicker than the law.

Trotter has found too many obstacles of his own making
