Well, I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say that's his only real out, either. It's really the only way people in these kinds of jobs manage to keep their head afloat - someone steps in and the winds of nepotism quietly give them a job where they can just keep their head low until retirement.
Oh, I don't disagree. But many people in Illinois have done every well for themselves after doing much worse, so if has connections he may end up okay.
