It looks like it's back to pawnbrokering for Scott Lee Cohen: The Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor of Illinois stepped down after it came to light that he was accused of holding a knife to the throat of his prostitute ex-girlfriend and also beating his ex-wife. "This is the hardest thing that I ever had to do in my life," he said.
