* Looks like a tracker is gonna win a bonus. JB Pritzker and Speaker Madigan had always studiously managed to avoid appearing in the same photograph with each other, but check this out from a weekend event…

Not exactly embracing each other, but it’s something.

…Adding… Madigan’s Democratic Majority PAC reported a $1 million contribution from Pritzker over the weekend. Pritzker also contributed $1 million to the Rock Island County Democratic Central Committee and $500K to Sen. Kwame Raoul. And Friends of Michael J Madigan collected a $500,000 check from the Laborers union (as subscribers know, he busted the caps on his personal committee weeks ago).

Everybody’s flush and happy these days.

    Is that most of Ray Lahood’s head in the foreground? Checking in with his old boss during the Obama visit?

  6. - Grand Avenue - Monday, Sep 10, 18 @ 9:55 am:

    That’s not Ray LaHood, that’s Bogdan Dola of Polish-language media TVP Chicago.


  7. - NIU Grad - Monday, Sep 10, 18 @ 9:57 am:

    I read that Pritzker and Rauner were on the same stage together this weekend to the latter’s chagrin…can’t find that video yet.


  8. - Grand Avenue - Monday, Sep 10, 18 @ 9:58 am:

    Also in the background is new Cicero Democratic Committeeman Blanca Vargas, who beat Charlie Hernandez in March.

    Victory vest!


  10. - The Way I See It - Monday, Sep 10, 18 @ 10:08 am:

    It’s not often I say this, but that looks completely photoshopped.


  11. - Rauner loves madigan - Monday, Sep 10, 18 @ 10:08 am:

    This is from the mexican independence day parade breakfast when JB got to speak on the stage before Rauner (who out of the picture but was also on stage)

    Let’s see a show of hands on how many of you have removed toilets from your houses?


  15. - Huh? - Monday, Sep 10, 18 @ 11:45 am:

    I’m working really hard to win this race, you can just see the sweat stains in my shirt.

    My goodness, a red sweater vest. Mapes used to get me out of these situations. ‘Sigh’

    Pictured: Speaker Madigan gazes at his chosen candidate with the pride of an estranged father sitting at the back of a graduation party.

    “And when I’m elected, two kielbasas in every pot!”


  21. - sharkette - Monday, Sep 10, 18 @ 2:14 pm:

    I guarantee Madigan will never call out of rules, committee a way to change the constitution to amend it, to get a reduction in pension and health care costs for state employees cost all you taxpayers pay dearly for, but Madigan will with out a doubt call out of rules, committee to release an across the board progressive income tax increase change- amendment- to the constitution.
    SO when most people in IL make an average of 75k, the gazillionaires still will pay proportionality less and they move their addresses to bufo,or Bahamas
    Oh and you all can start paying for it in 4 years when it will take effect too btw

    “I wonder what antiperspirant he is using? It’s working overtime”


  23. - Annonin' - Monday, Sep 10, 18 @ 3:21 pm:

    If this is what GovJunk pays bonuses on we might have a clearer understanding why he is 18 points down and dragging the First Lady in front of the cameras the cameras to say “thank you Mike Madigan” for passin’ all these bills my husband can claim as “accomplishments”


  24. - Billinois - Monday, Sep 10, 18 @ 8:39 pm:

    Anyone here want to work part-time at the Hyatt?


  25. - plainfield liberal - Monday, Sep 10, 18 @ 9:12 pm:

    The tracker will get no bonus. Trackers are underpaid and undervalued. Scorned souls.
