Hasterts seat won by Democrat Bill Foster

In hopefully the first of many such victories..a formerly Republican seat in Congress is now in the hands of a Democrat. From MSNBC:

CHICAGO – Democrat Bill Foster has snatched former House Speaker Dennis Hastert’s congressional seat in a closely watched special election that gave the longtime Republican district to the Democrats.

Foster has won 52 percent of the vote compared to 48 percent for Republican Jim Oberweis with 556 of 568 precincts reporting.

Of course there were shenanigans..but even Diebold couldn’t deliver this election to the Rethugs.
