Freshman Democratic Rep. Lauren Underwood gets another GOP challenger

Author: Editor

Republican state Sen. Sue Rezin of Morris on Tuesday became the latest contender for the GOP nomination to take on freshman Democratic U.S. Rep. Lauren Underwood of Naperville next year. 

Rezin announced she has filed a declaration of candidacy and other paperwork with the Federal Election Commission for a run in the sprawling suburban 14th Congressional District. She is among at least a half-dozen Republicans looking to take on the first-term Democrat in a district that had traditionally held strong Republican leanings.

Author: Editor

U.S. Rep. Bill Foster, D-Naperville, introduced a resolution in support of allowing so-called “Dreamers,” or undocumented immigrants who were brought to the country as children, to be able to serve in the military. 

Foster argued that allowing undocumented immigrants to serve would improve readiness and let young people who grew up in the U.S. serve the country, according to a news release.

Did Congress read the Mueller report? More than a quarter of these key lawmakers won’t say.

Rep. Justin Amash broke ranks with fellow Republicans when he said special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report shows that President Trump took actions that “meet the threshold for impeachment,” arguing that the stark partisan divide over the findings was because “few members of Congress have read the report.”

While it’s common for politicians to draw very different conclusions from the same set of facts, the Michigan congressman’s suggestion in several tweetstorms this past week is bolder — that most lawmakers simply ignored Mueller’s report.

So how many lawmakers actually read the entire 448-page, redacted report released on April 18?

The Real Vote Fraud

Author: Editor

Many years ago, as a college Republican, I spent one summer in Austin working for a candidate in a special election for the Texas senate. My hometown was a liberal enclave with many college students -- unwashed, longhaired, pot-smoking students, it seemed to me -- who were predominantly Democrats. The more students who came out to vote the less likely our candidate was to win.

But our campaign strategists came up with a plan. They sent mailings to all the registered voters in precincts near the campus. Many cards came back because the addressee had moved, as college students often do. Voters no longer at the address on file with election authorities were not eligible to vote.
