2013-11-08-Liteguv.png

The Office of Illinois Lieutenant Governor is the Rodney Dangerfield of constitutional offices. It's got no defined duties and the House has voted to abolish it. What's up with this oft-maligned, ill-defined post? Our infographic gives some of the fun history (like lieutenant governors getting bored and quitting) and context on the "lite gov." Pay attention -- you might get to vote on abolishing it a year from now. Check out our instructional and entertaining infographic here.
