A newly elected suburban state senator is rounding up fellow Illinois Republican officials to try to oust the chair of the beleaguered party over his support for legalizing same-sex marriage.
Sugar Grove dairy magnate and state Sen. Jim Oberweis emailed several fellow state central committeemen several days ago about organizing a special meeting to remove Illinois GOP chairman Pat Brady of St. Charles, the Daily Herald has learned. Brady is under fire for recent statements he made supporting same-sex marriage. […]
Oberweis said Brady should be removed to get past this issue and added the state needs to focus on financial problems.
“All of my time is now being spent responding to emails on social issues,” he said. “I don’t think those are the most pressing issues we should be dealing with.”
If it’s so not all that important, then why spend any time on it?
Hey, I get that he’s against gay marriage. He absolutely has a right to that opinion. I get where he’s coming from on Brady. But if this isn’t a “pressing” issue, then why “press” it at all?
