    That is why he fit right in when involved in Illinois politics, spend even when you don’t have it with no means to ever pay it back.

    Lunch truck with baloney sandwiches.

    People pledge to pay a nickel every time he says “Let the will of the people be the law of the land” or “referendum”.


  8. - Uncle Merkin - Thursday, Apr 26, 18 @ 11:23 am:

    Pay to tattoo your logo on him. I bet ComEd, Nicor, and all the other utilities would throw a few bucks around.

    Either that or PQ puts up flyers offering to cut grass around the neighborhood.


  9. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Apr 26, 18 @ 11:25 am:

    ===Fundraiser ideas?===

    petition drive… pick the cause.

    $1 a signature, $2 for a valid signature.

    350-600K signatures?

    It’s Pat Quinn. He can do it.


  10. - Streator Curmudgeon - Thursday, Apr 26, 18 @ 11:29 am:

    For every dollar raised towards the campaign’s debt is an hour he will stay out of politics.

    Get a private sector job? Naw, that’s silly.

    Run for mayor in Chicago. Raise the money for that race, withdraw at the end and finally…GO AWAY.


  23. - Matt Vernau - Thursday, Apr 26, 18 @ 12:16 pm:

    If he includes a letter of provenance the purple ties might work.


  24. - Fax Machine - Thursday, Apr 26, 18 @ 12:29 pm:

    Doesn’t he have a petition to term limit Rahm? Maybe the Mayor can make PQ a donation to make that “go away”


  25. - Generic Drone - Thursday, Apr 26, 18 @ 12:32 pm:
