Dillard questionnaire: Repeal civil unions, Motor Voter laws
Thursday, Aug 22, 2013
* I was looking up candidate questionnaires this morning for a story I did for subscribers and stumbled across a 2012 Illinois Review questionnaire filled out by state Sen. Kirk Dillard.
Dillard is often touted as a “moderate” candidate, but check this out…
“It is a litigous nightmare!!” he wrote underneath his answer. It hasn’t really turned out to be that way, except for the lawsuit to overturn it and instate full marriage rights based on equal protection arguments.
* Dillard also said he favored repealing the state’s “Motor Voter” law. I hadn’t heard of anyone of prominence pushing that idea, so it really stuck out for me.
Dillard also revealed that he could support a so-called “right to work” law, although it “Depends on how it is drafted,” he noted.
