[Comments are now open on this post.]

* The Sierra Club was trying to be helpful to Democratic state Rep. Jaime Andrade in his hotly contested, multi-candidate Chicago primary. Unfortunately, they put the wrong party affiliation on the thing. Major oops…

* The pro-choice group Personal PAC is using a photo of a vagina probe it its latest mailer targeting pro-life Republican House candidate Mark Batinick. I’m not gonna display it, but you can see it by clicking here. Also, I believe this same type of mailer is being used against other candidates.

Another anti-Batinick mailer is here.

* From a subscriber…

This was along a highway entrance ramp. Ferrand ran against Andrade but was kicked off the ballot by Schiavone allies. No “paid for” disclosure.

The sign…

* Here’s that National Organization for Marriage radio ad blasting Tom Cross. They use the voice of Jim Nalepa, of all people, to make their case…

* The IEA’s robocall urging members to vote for Kirk Dillard…

* The Illinois Federation of Teachers’ late mailer urging support for Dillard…


* But Bruce Rauner’s campaign isn’t letting up in the mail…


* The Windy City Times has demanded that groups using their copyrighted images stop doing so…

Windy City Times Attacks Use of Copyrighted Photos in Anti-gay 81st Distrtict Campaign

CHICAGO — Windy City Times newspaper is demanding that groups mailing bigoted, anti-gay attack fliers against state Rep. Ron Sandack immediately stop using its copyrighted photos.

Literature sent by the Illinois Family Action and the Liberty Principles PACs both use the same image of Sandack at a marriage equality rally in 2013, taken by Windy City Times staff photographer Kate Sosin. The Liberty Principles PAC also sent literature out in favor of Sandack’s opponent, Keith Matune, who has criticized Sandack’s support of same-sex marriage.

“Conservatives claim to respect property rights,” said Tracy Baim, Publisher of Windy City Times.

“Our Constitution protects the rights of these groups to send divisive, hate-filled mailings such as these,” Baim added. “But they are using our image to sell a product, hate, and we did not give them permission. We ask that they immediately stop using copyrighted photos.”

The literature also attacks Sandack for receiving donations from gay groups and individuals.

Sandack was one of three House Republications among the 61 reps voting for marriage equality in Illinois last fall. He represents the 81st District in the southwest suburbs.

Windy City Times is also pursuing other options, including possible legal action, to stop the unauthorized use of its images.

That’s only about a week too late, by the way.

* And the Republicans have scheduled their post-primary unity luncheon. From a press release…

On Wednesday, March 19th, the Illinois Republican Party will host a “March to Victory” luncheon following the Republican primary. Republican candidates for office and current officeholders will be on hand to address luncheon guests and the press.

“After ten years of one-party rule and five disastrous years of Pat Quinn as governor, the people of Illinois are desperate for a change,” said Illinois Republican Party Chairman Jack Dorgan. “Republicans are ready, and able, and eager to deliver, and we are working together toward our shared goal of victory in November.”

Who: Chairman Jack Dorgan, 2014 candidates plus elected officials [Full attendee list TBA]
What: March to Victory luncheon
When: Wednesday, March 19, 2014, 11:30 a.m.
Where: Union League Club, 65 W. Jackson Blvd., Room 710 Chicago, IL

    On the Rauner mailer, I did not see his name anywhere on it. Just sayin not to vote for someone.


  2. - SlapShotII - Monday, Mar 17, 14 @ 9:37 am:

    This is a great mailer ! Its funny and the pictures of Brady and Dillard makes them look dorky and incompetent ! LOL ! I would give this one an A grade.


  3. - shore - Monday, Mar 17, 14 @ 9:37 am:

    Jack Dorgan’s a great name for chicago politics.

    If quinn is smart he’ll bring back president bartlett in the closing days of the general campaign because that could really help. In 2006 claire mccaskill brought out Michael J Fox to talk about stem cell research (suburban women, hello) and it was one of the best ads I’ve ever seen and contributed to her win over jim talent. He’ll need stuff like that because it’s going to be pretty easy for Rauner to dump millions into the narrative that after 12 years of quinn/blago it’s time for change.

    I was out of the country for the last ten days and came back to 14 messages on my phone–Four were from Rauner, including that really poor robo-voice call, Four were from Brady, two of those from groups supporting him, four were for Dillard, two from pro-life groups, one from the IFT (the only one in which a real person called) and one from the AFL-CIO, and two from Cross. I’ll be curious to see how many mailers we will have when we pick up the mail today.


  5. - Pot calling kettle - Monday, Mar 17, 14 @ 10:50 am:

    Neither the IFT nor Rauner mailers even mention Rutherford…


  6. - Upon Further Review - Monday, Mar 17, 14 @ 11:07 am:

    Suburban Maine Township has an ugly fight going on in the contest for committeeman. Mailers filled with lies about bipartisan alliances and what not. Very much like the garbage being shoveled in the Andrade state rep races with literature linking people with controversial figures that they are not associated with.


  7. - Colossus - Monday, Mar 17, 14 @ 11:59 am:

    Rodney Davis had a total of 5 walkers in the Springfield St. Patrick’s parade. It was a remarkably poor showing.


  8. - Union Man - Monday, Mar 17, 14 @ 12:18 pm:

    Ran into Jim Oberweis Saturday at a pancake breakfeast in Aurora. Him and his wife looked very tired. Very tan though.


  9. - just passing by - Monday, Mar 17, 14 @ 4:20 pm:

    Andrade is a Republican right? I can find Andrade on the republican ticket? Great, ’cause I’m going to pull a R ballot just for him!
