Pat Quinn will be in the QCs tomorrow to announce WIU plans so secret they cannot be revealed before The Great Man arrives.
This is via QCOnline, so go there for more info, but wouldn’t it be better for all of these Santa Claus $$$$ to be done at least 6 months before an election?
Smart people see this for what it is—pandering and vote buying, but to Democrat low IQ voters, it’s the pony under the Christmas tree.
Sad and pathetic, but that’s Illinois politics.
Devin Hansen has been working on a novel about Lane Evans since at least ’08 and is now soliciting $$$$ in order to complete the project. Those with too much money on their hands should go here to toss your moolah into the abyss.
For $35 you can get a copy of this project, but don’t expect an honest assessment of Evans’ life, times and accomplishments because by Hansen’s own words:
“[At age 9 I] quickly became a life-long admirer of his politics, his intelligence, his humility, and his guts. He truly was one of the last honest men in congress, and now in retirement he continues to be a symbol of perseverance and strength.”
Whatever, just don’t expect truth-telling and a hard-hitting expose of how Evans won an election by violating election law or other nasty stuff. You’ve been warned!
Go to the link for a video of Evans highlights, including a shot of him with Phil Hare. I don’t know about you, but for me, Evans’ legacy is personified in Hare—a dirty back room deal that forced a totally inappropriate congressman upon the 17th CD.
Just when you thought you had seen the bottom of the fetid, disgusting, rotten campaign ad dreck and dross, Cheri Bustos and the Illinois Democrat Party take dreck to a whole ‘nother level with a mailer shrieking RAPE IS RAPE *EXCEPT TO BOBBY SCHILLING!!!11111!!!
Aside from acknowledging the disgusting level the Illinois Democrat Party and Cheri Bustos have fallen, a few comments:
1. What is the point of this? Bustos is supposed to be 9 points ahead with a $1.5+ fundraising advantage over Schilling. Why the overkill since this sort of over-the-top stuff is usually pulled by the underdog?
Wendy Davis is a classic case of this “throw sh*t at the wall and hope it sticks, since I know I can’t win I might as well damage the victor the best I can” desperation tactic. Pathetic. Is this a woman thing?
2. Do Bustos and the IL Dem Party have such a low opinion of women they actually believe they will be swayed by this? A candidate for high office is pro-rape? Oops! Forgot about Bill Clinton!
Maybe accusations of rape make sense to Democrat women after all!
Democrat operative caught on tape stuffing ballot box with hundreds of ballots.
Thousands of illegals are on North Carolina voter rolls.
According to Illinois Review, Jim Moynihan, a GOP candidate for state representative was shocked when he tried to cast a vote for himself in Schaumburg and the voting machine cast it for his opponent instead. “You could imagine my surprise as the same happened with a number of races when I tried to vote for a Republican and the machine registered a vote for a Democrat.”
In order to be “shocked” by this, Jim must be new to Cook County voting practices.
UPDATE: GOP candidate for AG, Paul Schimpf has called upon Lisa Madigan to investigate early voting problems. http://bit.ly/125StoC
According to The Tatler, the main reasons Democrats oppose voter ID is because they use it as a base-mobilization tool, they believe minorities are too stupid to remember to bring an ID when voting and they use their opposition to voter ID as a fundraising tool.
In St. Clair County [Illinois] jail employees held voter registration drives at the county jail, provided absentee applications to jail inmates, then physically took them to the county clerk’s office.
Ballot fraud ensnares groups tied to a Democrat Super PAC.
According to The Daily Mail and other sources, “Up To 34 Million Blank ‘Green Cards’ And Work Permits To Be Ordered Ahead Of Obama Illegal Immigrant ‘Amnesty’.”
With high unemployment generally and black unemployment sky-high, stalled wages and increased automation, what will these millions of illegals be doing to provide for themselves and their families?
But looking on the bright side, at least we will able to get one of these Amnesty Workers to cook and clean and get yard work done for a pittance,
Back to the 1850s—slave wages are the new prosperity!
Hey, this could really be a Win-Win—at least for some.

“Looking forward to kicking off early voting today in Illinois w/@UAW President Dennis Williams in Rockford, Rock Island & East Peoria”
