    If this staffer disappoints him, Madigan can choke him with the dark side of the force.


  6. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 2:59 pm:

    “We thought we would have a ‘Harry Potter’ Day in the district , but we couldn’t get the copyright, so we decided on ‘Stormtrooper Saturday’. Press ‘Like’…”


  7. - William j Kelly - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 2:59 pm:

    These rauner ‘volunteers’ are really bringing a new vitality to the party!

    Brush and floss…or else.


  15. - anonymoose - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 3:21 pm:

    Help me Obi Wan-Kenobi. You’re my only hope!


  16. - A guy... - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 3:22 pm:

    Hi. I’m just here to change a lightbulb in your Stratton Building office. Will be outta here in a jif.


  18. - Jon Zahm - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 3:23 pm:

    After polling showed Speaker Madigan’s favorable/unfavorable ratings upside down in the 84th District, he came to visit Rep. Kifowit in this disguise.


  19. - Anonymous - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 3:24 pm:

    Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi; you’re my only hope.


  20. - bored now - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 3:25 pm:

    you’re a constituent????


  21. - justanolehippy - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 3:25 pm:

    The Madigoons stopped by.


  24. - Brass - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 3:29 pm:

    Welcome to Aurora, where corruption and Dark Side is second to none!


  25. - Hit or Miss - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 3:32 pm:

    I always like to meet my constituents.


  26. - Guy who whispers "tree"... - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 3:34 pm:

    One is from outer space and the other is a guy in a costume.


  27. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 3:34 pm:

    One is part of a diabolical Empire that rules with an iron fist…with a leader whose genius is fueled by controlling all around him…with The Force… and the other is a person dressed in a Star Wars costume.


  28. - Michelle Flaherty - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 3:35 pm:

    just a typical caucus photo. they make em take the helmet off for the Blue Book.


  29. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 3:38 pm:

    OW, is that you?


  31. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 3:44 pm:

    ===OW, is that you?===

    Nah, I’m usually Chewbacca, or an ewok…

    Plus my Stormtrooper costume is at the cleaners…


  32. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 3:52 pm:

    One is a clone of a person who is known for collecting bounties, settling scores, and ruthlessness. A person feared for tracking down the most elusive targets, and bringing them down for the right price, at the right time.

    The other is a costumed constituent.


  33. - sangamon gop - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 3:54 pm:

    Another run in with Regional Governor Quinn’s security detail hits makes news. Things were so much simpler when these guys just mowed Regional Governor Edgar’s yard…before the Rebellion.


  34. - frustrated GOP - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 4:00 pm:

    Dem house staff forgets to change after a meeting with Emperor MJM and attending an event with the feeble minded representatives used to hide the Emperor’s true control of the State/Empire.

    He is later sent to southern illinois to work on campaigns never to be heard from again for his failure.


  35. - CircularFiringSquad - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 4:03 pm:

    Flip/Mitt Rauner rental field staff stumped in Aurora. Whitey Rauner announces retirement after meeting very talented Rep Kifowit.


  36. - anonymoose - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 4:05 pm:

    After a Star Wars photo-bomb was blamed for almost hurting her re-election, in the following GA, Ms. Kifowit filed HB 1978 banning any storm trooper masks with a lecherous, gray grin.


  37. - Enviros-Anon - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 4:09 pm:

    “If you will not turn to the Dark Side… then perhaps she will…”


  38. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 4:12 pm:

    “After being ridiculed for his ‘Tom Hagen’ approach to all the members of the General Assembly, Gov. Rauner today ordered his Legislative Liaisons to portray a softer side to the Members…”


  39. - Timmeh - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 4:12 pm:

    “Aren’t you a bit tall for a politician?”


  40. - un_squezzed - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 4:14 pm:

    robot look-alike from Daft Punk?!


  41. - Former Titan - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 4:20 pm:

    For the first time in history, the State Fair judges declared the “Creepiest Eyes Contest” a draw.


  42. - OurMagician - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 4:22 pm:

    Continuing her reliance on 70’s & 80’s icons, Sheila Simon is seen with Rep. Stephanie Kifowit explaining to her why she would make the best candidate for Attorney General….I mean Lt. Gov….I mean Treasurer.


  43. - Big Muddy - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 4:24 pm:

    She’s my Rep. and I’m afraid everything I want to say about this pic would get me banned for life.


  44. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 4:25 pm:

    (Pictured, L-R, Rep. Kifowit, Terrence Goggin)


  45. - ok... - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 4:40 pm:

    guess these issues staffers have really changed their look……


  46. - a drop in - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 4:54 pm:

    Rick Moranis was right. It’s too dang hard to breathe in one of these helmets.


  47. - Jake From Elwood - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 4:54 pm:

    Not enough pull to get Vader to the block party.
    Should have asked Madigan.


  48. - Farker - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 5:08 pm:

    Is that an E-11 blaster rifle in your pocket or are you just happy to see me


  49. - modest proposal - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 5:13 pm:

    “Too Infinity and Beyond”


  50. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 5:22 pm:

    One is a faceless character, no different than the next, in an ongoing story..,and is used as a pawn, by a leader far more shrewd and knowledgeable.

    The other is a person dressed as a Stormtrooper


  51. - Big Muddy - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 5:33 pm:

    OW for the win.


  52. - Wensicia - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 5:41 pm:

  55. - Anonymous - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 10:04 pm:

    She went to the “Dark Side” when she voted “yes” for unconstitutional pension reform.


  56. - Rob Roy - Thursday, Aug 7, 14 @ 10:15 pm:

    Is that a light sabre or are you happy to see me.


  57. - siriusly - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 12:30 am:

    Aren’t you a bit short for a HDEM-Trooper?


  58. - Just The Way It Is One - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 1:55 am:

    So you WILL meet me with Luke and Han Solo for Drinks later after the Campaign gig??


  59. - VanillaMan - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 8:57 am:
