*** UPDATED x1 *** Question of the day

* Chris Kennedy is to JB Pritzker as ____ is to ____?

*** UPDATE *** ¬†From the Tribune story on today’s Democratic Party meeting

There were also divisions among the wealthier contenders. Businessman Chris Kennedy, an heir to the wealthy and iconic political family who last week put $250,100 into his own campaign and as a result lifted contributions limits in the race, implored Democrats not to back billionaire investor and entrepreneur J.B. Pritzker. Kennedy did not mention Pritzker’s name but likened him to Rauner, a former private equity investor he called a “billionaire bully.”

“It’s criminal what (Rauner) has done to the Republican Party. He has silenced it. There is no dissent. Don’t let that happen to our party. Don’t put somebody in charge of our state who does not need all of you, who is not dependent upon all of you for re-election. Because if you do that, you will turn the Democratic Party in this state into what the Republican Party has become,” said Kennedy, who afterward told reporters he was referring to Pritzker.

“Don’t kid yourself that we can outsource that task (of taking on Rauner), that we can simply go to somebody and say, go to another billionaire and say, if you will be our protector, if you will fight our fight for us, we will make you our king,” he said.

    LP, what are you talking about?

    What local authorities are supposed to be investigating civil violations of federal immigration law? By what authority and who the heck is paying for that?

    Seems that local law enforcement has their hands full right now. I don’t see ICE taking 911 calls.

    It always struck me as strange that a guy who had gone his entire career as “Richard Phelan” thought the change to “Dick Phelan” was a good idea.

    Seriously, no one around him pointed out the obvious?
