Online Group Wants Illinois To Secede From Chicago
There's a new push to have Chicago become its own state. WICS TV in Springfield reported yesterday that Collin Cliburn is organizing a group, The Illinois Separation, to cut ties between Chicago and Cook County, and the rest of the state. Cliburn says voters in the rest of Illinois don't want the same things as voters in Chicago. It's not the first time that someone has proposed a split between Chicago and the rest of the state. Those attempts, by the way, went nowhere.
