ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's comment on the right of voters to oust unaccountable officeholders if they back a constitutional convention referendum. Earlier, the Illinois House, decisively voted to give citizens the power to remove corrupt public officials. However, the author says that a convention would not be rolled over by special interests because they are unlikely to marshal the votes to prevail, and, even if they could, a new constitution must be ratified by the voters.
