Illinois Democrat Lt. Governor Nominee Even Worse Than Thought

When we first noted this fellow the other day we figured his arrest was probably the worst of his troubles. As it turns out that was just scratching the surface. Now panicked Democrats are urging him to quit the race, led by Little Dick Durbin.
Cohen also allegedly abused anabolic steroids, displayed fits of rage and forced himself sexually on his wife before their divorce, court documents reviewed by the Chicago Sun-Times show.

Cohen also allegedly skipped child-support payments at the same time he was investing his own money — a total of more than $2 million — in his
successful bid to become the Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor. His ex-wife, Debra York-Cohen, alleged just two months ago that he owed her nine months worth of back child support totaling $54,000 for their four children.

York-Cohen described life with the millionaire pawnbroker as “pretty unbearable” and said she lived “in constant fear of him,” according to a May 2005 order of protection she filed in the divorce case.

“Over the past year, my husband has been taking injectable anabolic steroids. And as a result, he has an erratic, explosive temper,” York-Cohen explained in seeking the protection order. She also said Cohen tried to force her to have sex with him.
Sounds like a model citizen. Illinois Democrats should be proud for casting their votes for the maniac.
