Recreational Prevarication

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.

  1. “A new super PAC called Liberty Principles PAC, formed by Republican activist Dan Proft, has reported spending $78,000 this past week, with more on the way. The group’s ads are targeting Senate and House candidates in the same districts. So, for instance, they’re running a TV ad blasting Sen. Mike Jacobs, D-East Moline, and Rep. Pat Verschoore, D-Milan (Neil Anderson 2012 opponent), at the same time, as well as Rep. Elaine Nekritz, D-Northbrook, and Democratic Senate candidate Julie Morrison, D-Deerfield.”

  2. That’s nice James, but it won’t change my opinion of Jacobs—BTW did you know Rich Miller and Jacobs have been best buddies since college?

    If this info is accurate and true, you need to forward it to WQAD and Tibbetts since they made the claim that Jacobs lied. You have doctored info in the past and I don’t trust you to be honest.

  3. That’s nice Mary, but I didn’t see that one and even if I did, it wouldn’t change my opinion of Jacobs, Anderson or campaign ads.

    But to prove you’re not lying like James does, please post a link to this Anderson is lying thing, because at this point I assume everyone is lying.

    Also, it doesn’t matter if Jacobs is caught with a dead boy or a live transgender, he will win thanks to the mindless locksteppers of the district.

  4. More documented spending by Liberty Principles PAC for Neil Anderson and against Senator Mike Jacobs.

  5. Tell it to WQAD/Tibbetts because I don’t give a damn and the reader/viewship of WQAD/QCTimes far exceeds my modest blog.

    – QCe
    October 26, 2014

    At the least you should remove your libelous comment that relies on an inaccurate WQAD report, or do you commonly print stories that are so easily debunked? Just asking.

  7. Pardon my skepticism James, but until WQAD/QCTimes issues a correction or retraction, I’m standing by their story.
