When WQAD/QCTimes fact-checked the Mike Jacobs campaign ad attacking Neil Anderson, they found:
“The Jacobs campaign says [Dan] Proft has poured money into [Neil] Anderson’s races, both in 2012 and 2014. However, a review of campaign contributions from the Illinois State Board of Elections for Neil Anderson for IL 72nd District and Anderson for Illinois shows no contribution from Proft or Illinois Liberty PAC.”
Why is Jacobs being such a casual liar and making claims that are easily debunked especially since he is likely way ahead in the polls and in campaign cash? My guess is that he does it because he can and in the past he has never been subjected to any sort of rigorous scrutiny or fact checking.
Or maybe it’s just pathological.
Either way, all he has to do is win one more election before his son will be eligible to inherit the Jacobs Senate Seat and Mike can join his daddy’s lobbying business where he can really rake in the $$$$.
And it won’t make any difference if he lies or not.
