    “In these boxes, rests all my money…”


  2. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 11:19 am:

    “In one of these boxes, we have packed ‘Slip and Sue’ until late November…”


  3. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 11:21 am:

    “In these boxes, I have a whole school of fish, wrapped in ‘Rauner’ Paper. I learned from Rahm to send a message if need be. The petitions and fish speak for themselves.”


  4. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 11:23 am:

    “I bought these petitions fair and square, I want to eliminate Career Politicians, once I couldn’t buy them wholesale, just like emptying my Fridge, everything goes…”


  5. - Tsavo - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 11:24 am:

    I brought these boxes for Quinn to use to clean out his office immediately. No use waiting until I am sworn in as Governor.


  6. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 11:25 am:

    “This endeavor is the most expensive ’round tabling’ of petitions in Illinois history. I’m proud of that. I would do it again and again and again…”


  7. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 11:27 am:

    “No. No I did not sign my own name 591,000 times. Ok? Understand? Roughly 85 hundred times, but I would never cheat and sign 591,000 times …”


  8. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 11:29 am:

    “Sheila Simon just called and ask ‘where were your guys when I needed them on the last day of filing in December?’. Next time, Sheila, ok?”


  9. - Walter Mitty - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 11:30 am:

    ” I know someone besides Steve Martin that play’s a wicked Banjo. Please meet Sheila Simon, our new Governor!”


  10. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 11:31 am:

    “If I had a thousand dollars for each signature here… Oh, I do.”


  11. - AFSCME Steward - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 11:32 am:

    Thank you Illinois for the millions I’ve made off pensions and Medicaid.


  12. - Ron Burgundy - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 11:32 am:

    “With a schticky display like this, I’m sure many of you veteran journalists were expecting to see Pat Quinn… Well, guess again.”


  13. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 11:34 am:

    “Quinnochio is not here today, but I hope this Dopey prop and setup works for you.”


  14. - Kerfuffle - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 11:35 am:

    You know I once caught a fish this long.


  15. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 11:37 am:

    oops these are the tax returns for 2013


  16. - Walker - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 11:40 am:

    Very bad proposal, no matter what you think about term limits.

    I would bet less than 1/2 of 1% of the signers actually realized they were signing on for changing the size, structure, and processes of the legislature, and the Governor’s veto prerogatives, in addition to term limits.

    To fold it all into one, while publicly touting only term limits, is so misleading to the voters, as to approach deliberate fraud, IMO.

    But credit to his organization; he pulled it off.

    He and his money will also pull off staffed campaign field offices, where none would otherwise exist.


  17. - Precinct Captain - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 11:41 am:

    “Hopefully these signatures aren’t as phony as my policy positions!”


  18. - Oneman - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 11:46 am:

    Here I have collected everything Oswego Willy has ever written about me on CaptiolFax…


  19. - Arizona Bob - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 11:46 am:

    If you thinks I was stupid to spend over $500K for petitions for a change no one cares about, think how stupid my opponents will be for spending $600K to try and invalidate them!


  20. - okgo - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 11:46 am:

    Whenever someone does this, it reminds me of this:

    “On Thursday, in the midst of his second “State of the State” speech, Gov. Rod Blagojevich stopped speaking in order to retrieve an 18-inch stack of paper from behind the podium”

    “At one point during Blagojevich’s speech, the governor picked up a stack of papers that he said were 2,800 pages of the board’s administrative rules. He referred to them as a “bureaucratic nightmare.”"

    “Blagojevich’s audience of legislators laughed and clapped Thursday when he held up a foot-high stack of papers - 2,800 pages, he said - of agency rules that schools must follow.”

  21. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 11:46 am:

    ===But credit to his organization; he pulled it off.===

    He paid a 3rd party firm, that ain’t “organization”

    ===He and his money will also pull off staffed campaign field offices, where none would otherwise exist.===

    Tried in the Primary for a framework, no dice.

    You can rent space, got to staff them competently. Not a slam dunk for 50.

    “Caption”

    “This is my ‘Principal Selection’ application for my Denied Daughter to hopscotch worthy kids. See how she got in from Winnetka? Paperwork!”


  22. - AFSCME Steward - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 11:47 am:

    I’m going to put Springfield in this big white box & shake it up.


  23. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 11:48 am:

    ===Here I have collected everything Oswego Willy has ever written about me on CaptiolFax…===

    “… in March.”


  24. - AFSCME Steward - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 11:48 am:

    Due to lack of union support, I had to set up this display myself.

    i like helping illinois,this is more fun than helping the poor


  26. - AFSCME Steward - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 11:49 am:

    Everyone is saying I’m a moderate, but as this photo clearly shows, I tilt to the right.


  27. - okgo - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 11:50 am:

    Walker - based on sales pitch of the paid people who were illegally circulating these petitions on the CTA in poor, African American communities…

    I highly doubt even 1/2 of 1 percent were aware they were signing themselves up for a Bruce Rauner campaign prop.


  28. - Walker - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 11:50 am:

    The latest in modern technology.


  29. - AFSCME Steward - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 11:51 am:

    I’m only doing this because I knew Oswego Willie wouldn’t believe me without a picture. Now if he’d kindly send a link of it to Word Slinger, I’ll have completed my due diligence.

  37. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 11:58 am:

    “Yes, well, ‘Slip and Sue’ was scheduled to be here, but the insurance underwriters of the warehouse forbade it,”


  38. - AFSCME Steward - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 11:59 am:

    I have here a large stash of cash, which will be distributed to all the Raunerbots on Capitol Fax.


  39. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 12:01 pm:

    “Questions? Yes? Excuse me? What was that? Me? No! I didn’t circulate any of these, that’s for the little people. I’m the ‘idea’ guy, important. ‘Did I get any signa..’ What a Dopey question.”

    “Oh geez! Everyone. Stop. My watch fell in one if these boxes…”


  54. - too obvious - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 12:19 pm:

    Almost as large as the document dump GTCR’s lawyers did in the latest nursing home case.


  55. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 12:21 pm:

    “No, I didn’t read the petition, I have lawyers for that…Stuff… Stuff! Term limits, Senate district shifting thingy… Fewer, yes… Well, honestly, I fear Madigan more, so taking seats away from Cullerton WAS the compromise…”


  56. - Roadiepig - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 12:26 pm:

    Why do these banners read “Term Limits and Reform.com”? You know I wanted them to say “Mission Accomplished”!


  57. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 12:27 pm:

    “Speaker Madigan! President Cullerton!

    Greetings. This… is Bruce Rauner.

    Give me the Mansion, the governorship, the contracts, the agencies. In these boxes - my complete demands.

    I have, ‘die-rected’ at the Capitol, a ‘Lay-Zor’.

    It is up to you both to decide. ‘Governor Rauner’ or the complete destruction of your fair state.

    Mini-Me and I will wait for your response…”

    In other news, www.termlimitsandreform.com is a really, really long URL.


  60. - LincolnLounger - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 12:40 pm:

    I’m not crazy about the concept of term limits. I hate the structural changes. However, I pray that it survives the inevitable challenges and gets on the map. The process as it exists is rigged and revolting, and I am convinced this is the only hope for real reform. And no matter how much money he put behind it, 591K petitions is impressive.


  61. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 12:42 pm:

    how much money do you think this will cost to count?


  62. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 12:56 pm:

    “Hello again, Mr. Rauner…Yep, it’s me…. Yes…no, no Dog today… Boxes…no, these are fake, sir, your petitions are already traveling… Yep, staged pictures again! ‘Yea!… No dog, you don’t need it, this is about the petitions…I didn’t BRING the dog… No…. Just stand there… In front of the sign, yes, please… Yeah, I see, I see, no Carhartt… just stand there… No, they are fake boxes, you don’t need to lift them… Just stand… I do have the stuffed dog, I have it.

  70. - Hit or Miss - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 2:12 pm:

    All these signatures show overwhelming support for term limits. Its even more than the Thompson Proposition got and we all know what a far reaching impact that great proposal had on Illinois.

    Dead on. Several different times I said something to various petition signature collectors about the cuts in the size of the legislature. They looked at me like they didn’t know what I was talking about … but they also quit asking me to sign it.


  74. - Commonsense in Illinois - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 3:04 pm:

    …and while we’re all having fun with the picture, the President and Speaker are agreeing on how they’ll split the cost to verify every signature without their fingerprints on the effort.


  75. - Perceval - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 3:07 pm:

    I got these signature my way - two bucks each.


  76. - A guy... - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 3:31 pm:

    Keep being cheeky. There’s nearly 600K signatures in this picture. It’s a lot. He said he was going to do it. He did it. That will appeal to people who are used to something else.


  77. - Upon Further Review - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 3:32 pm:

    The banners are incorrect. Pay no attention to the banners. The boxes before you contain my complete set of state and federal income tax returns, including supporting schedules and attachments.

  79. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 3:47 pm:

    === He did it.===

    He paid a firm to send people out at $2 a signature to get sheets filled out. The only heavy lifting was the pen or keystrokes to move monies to an out of state petition company. Get real.

    To the “Caption”

    “I was going to ask ‘Slip and Sue’ to help load the boxes, buth this petition thing has cost my big bucks already, and she sees me as a meal ticket; one way or another, so, she is in the padded room while on premise…”


  80. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 4:02 pm:

    “In front of you, members of the Press, is my Term Limit strategy.

    You all may think these are the petitions. Dopes!

    In front of you are files, on every single elected official in Illinois.

    In these files are all the officials …and their …hopes … dreams… And weaknesses, and fears… I want to KNOW all, and I bet I can get a few to walk away. I want to be a …’Friend’…and these files guarantee that friendship..,”

    What’s real bunky, is he did it. You described the process in your own gifted way. I described the result; he did it. It’s done. Capiche?

    I’m pretty sure someone’s in a padded room, but it’s not her.


  83. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 30, 14 @ 4:33 pm:

    Sorry, - A Guy… -, it’s up to you if you want to share your room with her.

    “Caption?”

    “I called Speaker Madigan about this Term Limits thing, and I said, ‘I’ve tried to help you out of this, but if you ask for more time, I’m gonna file these petitions to get on the Ballot.

    Speaker said, ‘You won’t get them signed.’

    I told him, ‘We will get them. If you challenge these petitions I will file a motion to dismiss, And if the MTD is denied, I’ll file a motion seeking to obtain evidentiary ruling in advance, and after that I’m gonna file against pre-election ballot printing, and Speaker, you’re gonna spend an entire summer going blind on paperwork because North Shore Raunerite cant be bought, and you are trying to stop him.”

    Just like both Rauners; it’s done when its on the ballot. Right now, it’s a truckload of papers. Gotta finish,

    “Caption?”

    “This is what $1.3 million in signatures only looks like. For all you poor people, I just made that $1.3 million back from my first words here till….now”
