2010_03_12_dems.jpg State Democrats will try to put the Scott Lee Cohen affair behind them later this month when they officially convene to vote on their new Lt. Governor nominee. Party leader Michael Madigan announced today that hearings will be held in Chicago, Hoffman Estates, Bolingbrook and Springfield next Saturday, March 20th, and that the vote on Cohen's replacement will be March 27. Over 220 people have applied online for the job which may soon be a thing of the past if Madigan gets his way.
