*** UPDATED x1 *** Leader Durkin slammed in right-wing robocall
Tuesday, Sep 12, 2017
* Someone claiming to be from the “Illinois Tea Party” is doing robocalls into House GOP Leader Jim Durkin’s district in an attempt to recruit a “conservative reform candidate” to run against Durkin.
The caller claims Durkin is “anti-gun,” pointed out that he voted for “transgender birth certificates” and for “yet another suburban bailout of Chicago Public Schools.” The call also tries to blame him for the 15 House Republicans who crossed party lines and voted for the “Chicago Democrat” tax hike. “Durkin is no leader,” the caller claims.
We need “conservative reform leaders,” the caller says, “who will fight Mike Madigan and the Chicago bosses rather than acquiesce to them.”
As I told subscribers yesterday, I asked Dan Proft if he’s behind this call and never heard back…
*** UPDATE *** With thanks to a commenter, Illinois Tea Party founder Denise Cattoni has posted the script on her Facebook page and appears to be the person in the call.
