October Surprise?
Illinois May Sue FDA Over Canadian Drug Imports| Reuters.com:
Gov. Rod Blagojevich, a Democrat, claims the FDA is stonewalling on the state's request, submitted in December, to set up a pilot program for importing Canadian prescriptions for state employees and seniors.
The state's Democratic attorney general, Lisa Madigan, sent a so-called citizens' petition to the FDA on Thursday, her aide said. The petition requires the agency to respond within six months, aides to the governor said on Thursday.

Illinois officials said if they get no response within six months, FDA rules allow them to file suit in the U.S. District Court.
Love the timing!
