10With: Ina Pinkney - Breakfast Queen, Potential Interim Senator
By Karl Klockars in Food on Sep 14, 2010 3:00PM
With all the political handwringing and wannabe king-making happening in the still-brand-new Mayoral race, perhaps we've all forgotten that - oh yeah! - we're electing a Governor and a Senator first, amongst other things. Beyond even that, we have to pick an interim senator to fill the seat for a couple months (despite the pleading of one Mr. Roland Burris) as well. No one ever said that the Democratic process would be easy.
Out of all the races to run during this election cycle, why would you put your effort into becoming a place-holder Senator for a couple months? Restauranteur and prior mayoral write-in candidate (much to the then-chagrin of Mayor Daley and the no-fun Powers That Be) Ina Pinkney wants you to write her name onto the ballot - and she explained why to the Chicagoist Podcast Series.
