Exec who said he was leaving Illinois runs as Romney delegate in Illinois

Wednesday, Jan 11, 2012

* Champaign News-Gazette political columnist Tom Kacich (not online, so no link) reported today that James Liautaud, the CEO of the Jimmy John’s chain, is running as a Mitt Romney convention delegate, in Champaign.

Sure enough, he’s listed on the State Board of Elections’ website

* But, wait, I thought Liautaud said he was moving to Florida and had already enrolled his children in school there to avoid Illinois’ higher income taxes? From this past January

Jimmy John Liautaud told The News-Gazette on Tuesday that he is angry about the moves, which boosted the individual income tax from 3 percent to 5 percent and the corporate income tax from 7.3 percent to 9.5 percent.

“All they do is stick it to us,” he said, adding that the Legislature and governor showed “a clear lack of understanding.”

“I could absorb this and adapt, but it doesn’t feel good in my soul to make it happen,” Liautaud said. […]

As for himself, “my family and I are out of here,” he said.

Liautaud said he has rented a house in south Florida and his children started school there last week. He said he has applied for Florida residency and plans to commute to Champaign.

So, he doesn’t want to live and pay taxes here, but he wants to run as a convention delegate here? Bizarre.

    I am shocked, SHOCKED! to find out that JJ is full of hot air.

    /snark

    I haven’t bought one of his sandwiches in a year. Regardless of political leanings, the dude dissed my state and I take that very personally. This is the place that I grew up, the place that made me who I am, the place I am raising my children. You can feel how you feel, but don’t think because you have money you get to tell the rest of us how to run the place.

    He “applied” for residency. He is not moving to Europe. We think he meant to say he was establishing his tax dodge so he could avoid IL taxes and stick his kids in free schools.

    Maybe those ever vigiliant watchdogs in the Champaign County Clerks office (2011 Golden Horseshoe Recipients) can obtain his “application” and see if he is still eligible to VOTE in IL. Perhaps DandyDan — chief RomneyZombie — could see if his “papers” are in order. Maybe FL officials who love to catch snowbird tax cheats can read the Blog and score another scalp.

    Hypocrisy in politics, surely you jest

    The same goes to the Civic Club, btw. When the weather gets cold again tomorrow, I know who to turn to for enough hot air to heat the whole state.

    he probably figured out that florida’s overall taxes aren’t lower than illinois’…

    Brodsky and Liautaud just make you feel warm amd fuzzy don’t they?


  8. - vandalia - Wednesday, Jan 11, 12 @ 12:08 pm:

    Another big shot businessman who takes pot shots at the state but still wants to be part of it (delegate). This is the second story of this type of person I have seen today. It must be nice to have the money and power to just up and move to south Florida and then still be able to be the Republican front runners delegate in bad old Illinois. Im really sick of the whining these guys do. Shut up and go away and leave all of us poor overtaxed Illini alone.

    ===“I could absorb this and adapt, but it doesn’t feel good in my soul to make it happen,” Liautaud said. […]

    It doesn’t make his soul feel good? So it’s not an economic calculus he is making, it’s about his soul? So much for economic rationality.

    Hey, I’m sure Rutherford expects more campaign contributions from the guy. Gotta keep him happy.

    He’s pretty much the poster child for Romney supporters IMO.

    Colossus, I had a #16 last weekend and it was the first since this carpetbagger announced his Florida plans. I am embarrassed to admit that the sandwiches are good.

    Now though, this is too much. The embargo is back in place. I too love my state and he can take Florida and keep it.

    Not enought meat on the sandwiches, which makes my boycott easier, don’t let the door hit you on the way out

    I’m convinced that as the HQ for the incumbent Dem Prez campaign, the Illinois bashing from members of the right from within and from outside of the state, as well as from the uncommitted, will not cease throughout 2012, perhaps longer if BO wins again.


  19. - Kasich Walker, Jr. - Wednesday, Jan 11, 12 @ 12:55 pm:

    When Obama won in 2008, Illinois became to many on the right what Texas is to way too many on the left — a stereotypical source of fermentation for the opposition.


  20. - Michelle Flaherty - Wednesday, Jan 11, 12 @ 12:56 pm:

    I’m still wondering how many taxpayer dollars were spent ensuring his establishments were serving serving food that was safe to eat. Perhaps someone could ask IDPH to tally up the costs.


  21. - wordslinger - Wednesday, Jan 11, 12 @ 12:58 pm:

    Is this reverse carpetbagging then? My head’s on a swivel.

    By the way, did JJ move his headquarters out of Champaign to one of those states that was whispering sweet-nothings in his ear? I must have missed that.

    I hope the current crew of GOPers all hang in there and make it to Illinois. To hear The Gingrich and Pistol Perry rip on Mitt with rhetoric straight out of Occupy Wall Street is enormously entertaining.

    So is Ron Paul dissing the “military industrial complex” and “corporate welfare.”

    Next thing you know these guys will be wearing Guy Fawkes masks and banging on drums. And you know Ron Paul has no problem with the weed….

    Per the following — Liautaud has a homestead exemption on his Champaign property (i.e, he claims it as his domicile). His assessed value has gone down in recent years; however, I can’t tell right off if that was because of market conditions or because he appealed it.

    –Rahm Emanual had his kids enrolled in schools and DC and ran for Mayor–

    Rahm Emanuel was chief of staff to the president of the United States, a historically short term position (except for Andy Card).

    Emanuel was cleared to run all the way up to the Supreme Court.

    Emanuel never had a public temper tantrum ripping Chicago and declaring “my family and I are out of here.”


  26. - Anon - Wednesday, Jan 11, 12 @ 1:22 pm:

    “Emanuel never had a public temper tantrum”
    Right. His were always in private.


  27. - Rich Miller - Wednesday, Jan 11, 12 @ 1:25 pm:

    ===Rahm Emanual had his kids enrolled in schools and DC and ran for Mayor.===

    And this means what? Emanuel never said he was disgusted with Illinois and announced his intent to establish permanent residency elsewhere to avoid taxation.


  28. - Anon - Wednesday, Jan 11, 12 @ 1:29 pm:

    People say alot of stuff. Just ask Canadian citizen Alec Baldwin
    Has anyone checked the law to see if Jimmy John does not meet the residency requirement?


  29. - Anon - Wednesday, Jan 11, 12 @ 1:31 pm:

    And Jimmy John never said he wanted to avoid taxation, just wanted lower taxes

    Thanks Elo Kiddies. Here’s the most telling quote from the NY Times article:

    “Indeed, Mr. Liautaud was blunt about his motivation for bidding to meet the Edge and bids to meet more than a half-dozen other celebrities. “The cause wasn’t the reason so much as was the opportunity to meet some folks I thought were cool,” he said.”

    I think that sums him up pretty nicely. “Charity, schmarity, what’s in it for me?”


  38. - Capital View - Wednesday, Jan 11, 12 @ 3:26 pm:

    I see a new state statute here - barring persons from seeking to represent Illinois primary voters in Illinois based elections unless their primary residence is in Illinois.

    Accomplishes next to nothing but looks like an election process reform…


  39. - Esquire - Wednesday, Jan 11, 12 @ 3:40 pm:

    Too funny.

    Too bad Mister Jimmy John cannot find time to do something more important like learning how to bake better bread for his sandwiches.

    @wordslinger: The longest term for a COS was six years (Andy Card tied for second place). Rahm Emanuel was COS for about nineteen months.

    He’s probably got big money, for the biggest money candidate of them all. If he really comes through, they’ll make him a “key policy advisor” to the campaign.
