Miller: Candidate’s gun arrest met with silence
One of the more fascinating things about the media frenzy surrounding state Sen. Donne Trotter’s arrest last week was that not one of his Democratic 2nd Congressional District opponents immediately jumped in front of the cameras to comment publicly about the matter.
They stayed silent even when Trotter, D-Chicago, announced after he was bonded out of jail the next day that he wouldn’t drop out of the race to replace former Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr.
Trotter was arrested Wednesday morning for allegedly trying to take an unloaded pistol through a security checkpoint at O’Hare International Airport. Reporters swarmed the courthouse after Trotter posted bond Thursday and then, when he refused to comment, some descended on his home on Chicago’s South Side.
