Pritzker clearly wants Rock Island County, so he is willing to try to buy it. He clearly wants to be governor, so he is trying to buy that as well with big giveaways and a “wink-wink” promise to “tax the other guy.”
While I don’t hold out much hope of the $1 million being used to pay down some of the debt Democrats have generated in the county, that isn’t really what worries me.
He is planning to buy the county with his money and with it the state election.
If you search “Rauner” in the contributions section of the State Board of Elections’s website, you would find the Governor and Mrs. Rauner have personally donated nearly $112 million to political organizations since October 2012.
