Dunkin becomes issue in Metro East race

Tuesday, Aug 30, 2016

* It appears this Democratic mailer on behalf of Rep. Dan Beiser (D-Alton) is referencing the support given by Dan Proft’s Illinois Opportunity Project to Rep. Ken Dunkin (D-Chicago) in the spring primary…

Man, oh man. And it’s not even Labor Day.

Whew.

Also, sorry for the picture quality issue, but I figured you’d like to see this anyway.

* Meanwhile, the anti-Dunkin t-shirts from the spring primary are being repurposed in at least one southern Illinois House race…

    Yikes. The never-ending campaign.

    Vote Accordingly. Pretty simple

    Good Democrats recycle.


  3. - Huh? - Tuesday, Aug 30, 16 @ 12:53 pm:

    When scavenging the battlefield for ammo, you pick up anything that shoots. i.e. if you can use dunkin against your opponent, by all means do so.

    Is that a Chicago-based political agitator carpetbagging in a southern Illinois parade for Marsha Griffin? How does that help her shake the Madigan-controlled-goon label?

    Maybe I’m naive, but I’ve never thought the attack that “This candidate’s campaign is funded by the same people who also funded this other candidate’s campaign, and that candidate was x, y, z,” was compelling in the least.

    **Is that a Chicago-based political agitator carpetbagging in a southern Illinois parade for Marsha Griffin?**

    Or maybe it is a southern IL-based political agitator who carpetbagged in Chicago during the primary?

    Or maybe it is someone that just liked the cool t-shirt?

    Sorry but that shirt was being worn by a very Southern Illinois Lady who requested to wear it in the DQ parade.

    ===worn by a very Southern Illinois Lady===

    That’s a lady? Coulda fooled me. But, whatevs. It’s 2016. To each his (or her) own.


  9. - Ron Burgundy - Tuesday, Aug 30, 16 @ 1:47 pm:

    Hmm. Reminded me who backed and funded this apparently awful person they describe for the fourteen years prior to 2016?


  10. - @MisterJayEm - Tuesday, Aug 30, 16 @ 2:11 pm:

    “Prior to 2016!” “Prior to 2016!”

    You’re living in the past, Ron! Quit living in the past!

    – MrJM


  11. - A guy - Tuesday, Aug 30, 16 @ 2:24 pm:

    If that’s a lady, Bryant would appear safe to me. Yowser.


  12. - Stark - Tuesday, Aug 30, 16 @ 2:26 pm:

    Dude’s a dude. Lent the shirt to a woman who wanted to briefly wear it later. Unless it’s Ronda Rousey.


  13. - the old man - Tuesday, Aug 30, 16 @ 2:44 pm:

    Maybe he or she is the reason Marsha’s campaign official quit.


  14. - Alton Giant - Tuesday, Aug 30, 16 @ 3:47 pm:

    “Man, oh man. And it’s not even Labor Day.”
    I’m about as hard-D as a voter can be and I have received at least six mailers from Dan Beiser’s opponent. They have to be answered.


  15. - FirstTimer - Tuesday, Aug 30, 16 @ 3:52 pm:

    I guess I should have been more clear. The picture presented is a guy, but a Southern Illinois Lady was more than eager to wear the shirt in the parade because of the way State Representative Bryant had treated her as a state employee. The picture presented had no resemblance to a parade or a woman so I presumed those who normally are on this site would be able to determine the difference. I stand corrected and my apologies.


  16. - Big Muddy - Tuesday, Aug 30, 16 @ 3:55 pm:

    Dunkin is not “an issue” in this race. Just because Madigan(IL Dems et al) says so does not make it so.


  17. - PTP - Tuesday, Aug 30, 16 @ 4:03 pm:

    FirstTimer, your shirt is on backwards!
    Very resourceful.
