In Chicago, former President Barack Obama campaigns for Illinois Democratic ticket, says 'don't be bamboozled' by GOP rhetoric

Author: Editor

Former President Barack Obama returned to his former hometown Sunday, attempting to convert Democratic enthusiasm into votes on Tuesday as he decried Republicans for going beyond political spin to fearmongering and “blatantly, repeatedly, baldly, shamelessly lying” to win support.

 “Vote IL DEMS November 6” was a message scrolled on the ribbon board of the 9,500-seat arena at the UIC Pavilion as well as on the podium as Obama, joined by the statewide Democratic ticket and two suburban congressional hopefuls, challenged voters to seek better.

 “Democracy doesn’t work if there is no check, if there’s no consequences, for an absence of truth,” he said during his 45 minutes of remarks, his voice hoarse from campaigning for Democratic candidates across the country as a counter to Republican President Donald Trump.

Could 'Blue Wave' carry Democrats to victory in Will County?

Author: Editor

It’s no secret Will County Democrats are aiming to add to their numbers in local government, especially on the County Board – where they have been in the minority since 2014. 

The Will County Democratic Central Committee has fielded a few hopeful candidates to challenge Republican incumbents in key district races. 

Keep in mind that at the County Board level, each district elects two representatives. The top two vote earners in the general election, regardless of party, will sit on the board.

Moustis' Double-Dipping Textbook Worthy: Gallagher

Author: Editor

You have to hand it to Jim Moustis. He's a pretty smart cookie. If he wrote a book, I'd buy it. 

Unlike some questionable politicians who navigate legal loopholes to get a little somethin' somethin' extra, Moustis is an overachiever. He not only double dips, but he double-double dips.

As a the Will County Board Speaker from District 2, Moustis advocated that the board vote to drop the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund (IMRF). In fact, board meeting notes from 2016 show he didn't just advocate for it, he was salivating for it.
