Capitol Fax: Rep. Thapedi to step down

Rich Miller has more about the resignation of state Rep. Andre Thapedi (D-32) on his blog yesterday. As you know this was reported on Sunday evening.

Not to go too negative on this, but the comments to that post well a few of them discuss how they hate that an incumbent gets elected to their legislative seat then turn around and resign. Some call for special elections to state legislative seats. Especially for house seats.

There should be some discussion on this at the very least. Perhaps even special elections for Alderman upon a resignation, removal or death. 


  1. Who replaced Andre? ¯\_ಠ_ಠ_/¯

    1. I've been wondering where you have been. I haven't heard anything about who will replace Rep. Thapedi. I wish I did have inside sources on who's next.
