*** UPDATED x2 *** What do Sha-Na-Na, Bill Enyart and pies have in common?

Monday, Sep 22, 2014

* I get some weird press releases sometimes. For instance…

Mike Bost cancels AARP Debate - Enyart, Seniors and Bowzer from Sha-Na-NA to rally in response

Bowzer from Sha-Na-NA?

* I kid you not…

U.S. Congressman Bill Enyart (IL-12), will be joined by Jon “Bowzer” Bauman, advocate for seniors, to discuss Medicare, and Social Security issues surrounding the upcoming election.

“We can’t balance the budget on the backs of our seniors,” said Enyart. “We must protect Social Security, we must protect Medicare, and we must protect retirees and seniors on fixed incomes. Since day one in office, I’ve been fighting for these programs, and I will continue fighting each day.”

“Congressman Enyart is a champion of seniors’ rights,” said Bauman. “With his leadership and advocacy, I know that the interests of Southern Illinoisans will be maintained. On the other hand I find it shameful his opponent Mike Bost has canceled a 2nd debate with AARP because he believes they are a “Special Interest Group”.

Those interested in joining the rally should arrive at approximately 1:45 p.m., 15 minutes before the event.

TIME: 2:00 p.m.
LOCATION: The Pie Pantry, 310 E Main St # 1, Belleville

Bowzer and Enyart at the Pie Pantry. I wish I could’ve made it to that one.

…Not really, just kidding.

* Bowzer went to Columbia, so he’s no intellectual slouch, and he’s still doing his schtick

*** UPDATE 1 *** It’s not just Enyart…

Sha Na Na Star Tours District in Support of Ann Callis, Praises Her Support for Seniors

CHAMPAIGN - Former Chief Judge and Congressional challenger Ann Callis today toured the district with Jon “Bowzer” Bauman to talk about the importance of protecting Social Security and Medicare for seniors. Bauman, known for his starring role in the group Sha Na Na, is also the co-founder of “Senior Votes Count!” a seniors’ advocacy organization that endorsed Callis’ campaign at stops today in Bloomington, Decatur, and Champaign.

“While you may associate me from the music of the 1950s and 1960s, I don’t want to see our country’s seniors go back to that time when their financial security was always in limbo,” said Bowzer. “I’m here to support Ann Callis because seniors in Illinois need a representative who will fight efforts to privatize Social Security or make Medicare into a voucher program, two proposals her opponent has supported that would be extremely harmful to seniors.”

Callis is running against Congressman Rodney Davis, who supported privatizing Social Security and voted for the Ryan budget that would end the Medicare guarantee and increase costs for seniors.

*** UPDATE 2 *** From the NRCC’s Katie Prill…

So apparently Bowzer is the DCCC’s secret endorsement weapon – that seems more like the kiss of defeat. Remember Elizabeth Colbert-Busch. And Alex Sink. And David Weprin.

But really - If you’re born after 1975 or so you probably have no idea who that is. If you’re born before 1975, you probably have no idea why anyone would care. And if you’re in Illinois’ 12th or 13th Congressional District you have to wonder why any of this is relevant.

Perhaps Callis and Enyart would be better served calling Barbara Eden from “I Dream of Jeannie” because they have a better chance of winning their elections with her magic bottle than with Sha Na Na. :)

That’s the best response Prill has provided all season.

*** UPDATED x1 - Frerichs response *** Former Democratic state treasurer endorses Cross - Cites bipartisanship, Israel bonds as reasons (COMMENTS OPENED)

Sunday, Sep 21, 2014

* We’ve discussed before that it’s very difficult for the down-ballot statewide candidates to pierce through the media’s wall-to-wall coverage of the governor’s race.

Well, this development might just do that. Former Democratic state Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias has endorsed Republican state Rep. Tom Cross for the office over Democratic Sen. Mike Frerichs.

Check the one-hour, twelve-minute mark of Rick Pearson’s “Sunday Spin” show. Giannoulias bemoans the hyper-partisanship of today’s politics and shifts to the treasurer’s race

We just need good people in office, we need people who care and individuals who understand what they’re doing…

While I’m a proud Democrat, proud of what we’ve done, I do think there are certain people who run for office on both sides who are willing to reach across the aisle.

I’ve known Tom Cross for a while, I think he’s got courage, I think he’s a good guy. He sponsored Illinois’ embryonic stem cell law to help researchers find cures for diseases like Diabetes and Alzheimer’s. He’s pro-choice. He was one of the deciding votes for Illinois’ marriage equality law. He supports common sense immigration reform. He has said that he is willing to talk about a minimum wage increase, which is something I think we should be talking about.

And while I’m not in politics any more, who I’m friends with and who I think would be a good leader is probably not important to a lot of people, I do appreciate the fact that Tom Cross has done his homework on the office of the treasurer, he understands the role. And when you talk about people who are willing to break with their party and do what’s right, I think he represents one of those people.

* When asked why Frerichs might not be up to the task, Giannoulias talked about Frerichs’ infamous Israel bonds stumble - when he repeatedly demanded that the treasurer’s office divest itself from all foreign investments, even though Israeli government bonds are the only foreign investment currently in the office’s portfolio. You can read some background on that issue by clicking here.

Back to the program

I’m not here to bang on Mike Frerichs… I think his statements on Israel bonds weren’t carefully thought out. It’s been one of the better investments in the state treasurer’s office. There’s never been a default. Since the Israel bonds came out they’re about, last I saw, they’re about 1.4 percent higher over a ten-year period than US Treasuries, so it’s a good investment.

I just think it’s important for folks to do their homework before they make certain statements.

Ouch.

If this story doesn’t break through the white noise, then pretty much nothing will. I’ll open comments on Monday.

*** UPDATE *** From Frerichs’ campaign manager…

“Tom Cross has repeatedly said he thinks Dan Rutherford is doing a good job. Mike Frerichs is going to run the Treasurer’s office differently. On day one, Mike will launch an independent audit, roll back the political internship program and sweep politics out of the Treasurer’s office.

Tom Cross repeatedly opposed increasing the minimum wage, voted repeatedly to make it legal to fire people for being gay, and Tom Cross worked to elect anti-choice, anti-equality Tea Party candidates. His actions are clear when it comes to progressive issues and working families.“

Quinn hit on botched early prisoner release program (COMMENTS OPENED)

Saturday, Sep 20, 2014

* A Bruce Rauner TV ad opens a brand new (for this year) and powerful front against Gov. Pat Quinn.

The new ad slams Quinn him for his administration’s botched early prisoner release plan that just about cost the governor the 2010 Democratic primary. Bill Brady didn’t really emphasize the botched program, but Rauner isn’t making that same mistake. [They’ve fixed the typo mentioned above and posted a new ad] Have a look

* Script…

230 violent criminals, secretly released early by Pat Quinn.

Sex offenders, wife beaters, convicted murderers.

What happened after Quinn freed them is unthinkable.

Sexual assault of a minor, violent domestic abuse and more senseless murders.

The unthinkable didn’t have to happen.

Now Pat Quinn wants four more years?

* This is no one-off, either. Expect Quinn to get pounded on this and other topics for the rest of the season.

* Documentation from the Rauner campaign…

On December 14, 2009, The Associated Press Reported That The Illinois Department Of Corrections Had Instituted A Secret Early Release Program Known As “MGT Push” And That 850 Inmates Had Already Been Released Weeks Earlier Than They Should Have Been. “Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn has suspended a prison program that allowed repeat drunk drivers, drug users and even people convicted of battery and weapons violations to serve less than three weeks’ total time behind bars. Records obtained and analyzed by The Associated Press show that since September more than 850 inmates were released weeks earlier than they ordinarily would be. The Corrections Department was saving money by abandoning a policy that requires inmates to serve at least 61 days and awarding them discretionary good-conduct credit immediately upon entering prison.” (John O’Connor, “Ill. Suspends Program That Released Inmates Early,” The Associated Press, 12/14/09)

At Least 230 Of The Inmates Quinn Released Early Were Serving Sentences For Violent Crimes Or Crimes Involving A Weapon. “Corrections also dropped a 61-day minimum stay for all inmates, meaning scores of prisoners spent a total of less than three weeks behind bars, including county jail time. They served, on average, 26 days in the state pen, from as few as seven to 60, just below the old minimum. On the updated list, at least 230 released early were convicted of violent crimes or those that involved weapons. (John O’Connor, “Ill. wrongly reported early release prisoners, The Associated Press, 1/23/10)

Criminals With Histories Of Murder And Rape Were Released Early Under Quinn’s Program. “A west suburban man sentenced to prison for murder conspiracy was freed early under a controversial state program that Gov. Quinn called a ‘mistake’ and discontinued last week, a Chicago Sun-Times analysis has found. Also sprung early were 20 other men with killings or attempted murder in their criminal backgrounds, records show. Six were convicted of murder, five of second-degree murder, one of manslaughter, one of murder conspiracy and seven of attempted murder…During a news conference last week, neither Quinn nor Randle pointed out the degree to which people with murder, armed robbery, rape and other convictions for violent crimes had been released under the program.” (Frank Main and Chris Fusco, “Back on the street,” Chicago Sun-Times, 1/6/10)

Criminals With Histories OF Domestic Battery Were Released Early By Quinn. “Quinn on Wednesday has backtracked from earlier statements, acknowledging that he knew ahead of time that the state Department of Corrections had planned to release some inmates early as part of a cost-saving measure. Quinn, however, has refused to say whether he knew that some of the prisoners had been convicted of violent crimes that included domestic battery.” (“Gubernatorial Challenger Hynes Takes Quinn To Task,” Belleville News-Democrat, 12/17/09)

Darrell Bracey Was Released From State Prison On September 23, 2009 Under MGT Push, After Serving Just One Year Of A Three-Year Sentence For Burglary. “The 23-year-old Bracey was freed Sept. 23, 2009 after serving one year of a three-year sentence for burglary, including 55 days in the state penitentiary.” (John O’Connor, “Ill. Parolee Wasn’t Picked Up After Battery Claim,” The Associated Press, 9/20/10)

On January 4, 2010, Bracey Allegedly Had Sex With A 14-Year-Old Girl. “If he had been picked up in December, he could have been back behind bars Jan. 4, the day he admittedly had sex with the 14-year-old girl, according to investigators. Naperville police investigated the incident as a criminal sexual assault, records show, but prosecutors have not filed charges because the victim’s family is not cooperating, according to the Will County state’s attorney’s office.” (John O’Connor, “Ill. Parolee Wasn’t Picked Up After Battery Claim,” The Associated Press, 9/20/10)

Joshua Paddock Was Let Out Of Prison November 6, 2009 And Was Arrested December 12 For Domestic Battery. “Joshua Paddock, 21, who was sentenced to four years in early 2008 for aggravated battery. Lake County Jail held him about 18 months, he left Stateville Nov. 6 after 14 days, and was arrested later that month for driving without a license. But Corrections did not revoke his parole until after he was arrested Dec. 12 on four charges of domestic battery.” (John O’Connor, “Quinn: Secret prison early release ‘big mistake’,” Associated Press, 12/31/09)

Paddock’s Victim Was Beaten And Choked For Four Hours In A Hotel Room. “According to the Corrections documents, the victim contends Paddock stripped her, kicked her, choked her and dragged her across the pavement and back into a hotel room over the course of four hours.” (John O’Connor, “Crimes come to light Gov. Quinn denies knowing offenses of released inmates,” Associated Press, 1/9/10)

Edjuan Payne Was Serving Time For Criminal Damage To Property When He Was Released Early Under MGT Push. “Payne was serving time for criminal damage to property when he got out last fall as part of Quinn’s secret early prison release program, although he also had an earlier murder conviction. He was sent back in January for violating parole on the property damage charge by drinking alcohol and not properly reporting to his parole agent. He was freed in March. On Friday, he was charged with murder in Peoria.” (”Parole Violator Now Charged With Murder Was Released Early,” The Associated Press, 5/18/10)

Payne Was Sent Back To Jail In January Of 2010 For Violating His Parole. “Payne was serving time for criminal damage to property when he got out last fall as part of Quinn’s secret early prison release program, although he also had an earlier murder conviction. He was sent back in January for violating parole on the property damage charge by drinking alcohol and not properly reporting to his parole agent. He was freed in March. On Friday, he was charged with murder in Peoria.” (”Parole Violator Now Charged With Murder Was Released Early,” The Associated Press, 5/18/10)

Payne Was Released From Prison Again On March 29, 2010. “Payne would have served the remainder of his sentence (which was one year because the state counts each day served as two) and been released at the end of July 2010. The state’s Prison Review Board, however, allowed Payne to be released from prison on March 29, 2010. The PRB is an independent agency. It does from time to time make confidential recommendations to the governor relative to clemency petitions.” (Andrew Greiner, “Former Convict Accused of Second Murder,” NBC Chicago, 5/14/10)

On May 13, 2010, A Month And A Half After He Was Released From Prison, Payne Was Arrested For the Murder Of A 41-Year-Old Peoria Woman. “Peoria police arrested a Chicago man Thursday in connection with the death of a 41-year-old woman whose body was found in an alley. The woman’s body was found Thursday morning in the alley in the 1400 block of Northeast Perry Avenue and she has been identified as Orvette Davis. The 8-month-old infant found lying on the ground next to her is her granddaughter, Aaliyah Gaston. The infant was taken to OSF Saint Francis Medical Center on Thursday morning with what police described as non-life threatening injuries. Police arrested Edjuan L. Payne, 40, of Chicago and booked him on charges of first-degree murder, attempted murder and endangering the life of a child. (Scott Hilyard, “Police Arrest Homicide Suspect,” Peoria Journal Star, 5/13/10)
