  50. - anonymoose - Wednesday, Aug 6, 14 @ 3:36 pm:

    Just so you know Governor Quinn, the products with pseudoephedrine are located behind the counter. Your comments on your opponent’s patriotism are somewhere below the belt.

    look pat I’m sorry, but really by looking at your resume what skill set do you have?


  57. - Steve - Wednesday, Aug 6, 14 @ 3:56 pm:

    ” Did Dick Durbin ask you to hire his wife Loretta as a lobbyist?”
