    Dan Proft is citing … Dan Proft!

    Prairie State Wire & West Cook News are 2 of his websites.

    And to his credit, Prairie State Wire had the scoop that Rauner would sign HB40.


  2. - Chicago Cynic - Thursday, Nov 30, 17 @ 10:47 am:

    So Proft creates phony publications. He then gets those publications to write useful headlines. He then uses his own publications in his own mail piece. And voters are supposed to care about this?

    Aw, you’re asking the wrong question.

    The question at the end is… do the voters know about this.

    It’s one thing to be fooled by a magic trick, it’s another to actually know you’re being fooled.

    So Rauner has been promoted from volunteer to political insider by Proft now, huh???

    Proft loves trying to burn down the house. That’s easy. Actually winning and governing is another story, however.


  6. - DuPage Bard - Thursday, Nov 30, 17 @ 10:57 am:

    Voters don’t know the Prairie State Wire isn’t a real newspaper. The Profit news network is actively soliciting libraries to start carrying the newspapers.

    Durkin has real problems here, he better hope the dive into Mickey’s past comes up with more than some letter.


  7. - Keyrock - Thursday, Nov 30, 17 @ 11:04 am:

    Did Proft forget to use the word “combine?”


  8. - Colin O'Scopey - Thursday, Nov 30, 17 @ 11:05 am:

    Here’s a potential headline:

    “Marty Straub Receives Backing by Pro-Roy Moore Forces”


  9. - Person 8 - Thursday, Nov 30, 17 @ 11:39 am:

    “It isn’t a pretty picture” “if you’re tired of looking at it” me thinks if this were next to a female there would be some outrage.


  10. - A guy - Thursday, Nov 30, 17 @ 12:14 pm:

    It’s irritating. Not more than that.


  11. - Railrat - Thursday, Nov 30, 17 @ 1:21 pm:

    What’s bizarre, other than Profts theatrical personality, is he aligns himself with Local 150 in attacking Durkin , 150 is a major alli to all things Madigan, and all things democratic/socialist machine politics ( unlike the old days under-prior Business Manager) ) and this makes for a convoluted message.


  12. - Trapped in the 'burbs - Thursday, Nov 30, 17 @ 4:16 pm:

    What happened to Rauner’s control of the GOP? Did he find out that he didn’t buy but merely rented the party?


  13. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Nov 30, 17 @ 4:21 pm:

    ===What happened to Rauner’s control of the GOP? Did he find out that he didn’t buy but merely rented the party?===

    Remember… (sigh)

    This is Proft saying Durkin turned his back on “conservatives”, while Rauner supports Durkin… while Proft also wants all those Republicans who turned on Rauner (you read that right) defeated too.

    That Proft, nobody can stand for nothing… and everything… the way he can.

    It’s a gift.
