Freshman Hazing

Freshmen get hazed --in the Illinois state Senate.

Sheryl Axley (R-Mount Prospect) was offering her first bill and got the traditional treatment.

Assistant Democratic Leader Rickey Hendon (D-Chicago)asked Sen Axley to go "on a township road with me later on tonight."

Proving that when you're in a hole, rent a steam shovel, Sen Hendon replied to his warning from the chair with:

"Madame President, don't deny me my opportunity, here. I mean, she looks like she's only 16 or 17. I might be able to trick her, or something."

Sen Axley says it was all in fun -- and finds no offense in the offer or the age comment.

I'll keep you posted on township road caucuses though. (Sun-Times)
