The Intern Who Would Be King

Today, WBEZ's Justin Kaufman shifts his attention from Scott Lee Cohen to Republican lieutenant governor candidate Jason Plummer and finds that the 27 year-old appears to be exaggerating his public service experience.  The current bio on his campaign websites states that he "[s]erved under U.S. Senator Peter Fitzgerald and in Washington, DC with the Heritage Foundation."  Turns out he was just an intern to the senator and the conservative think tank.  (He has since joined the Naval Reserves and become a vice-president at his family's lumber company.)  Plummer, by the way, won the GOP primary after borrowing about $1.2 million from himself and his family for the campaign.
