*** UPDATED x1 *** Republican hopeful slams “slick Dick Durbin,” claims “wrong people” moved into Lake County, says Democrats “heading for evil”

Thursday, Aug 15, 2019

* US Senate candidate and former Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran spoke to the Illinois Republican State Central Committee/County Chairman’s Association Breakfast this morning

My name is Mark Curran and I’m here to take out slick Dick Durbin [applause]. Slick Dick has been in office for over three decades, four terms as a United States Senator. … He’s as partisan a member of the United States Senate as there is. He’s in leadership, but ultimately his god is power.

Today for Catholics is the Feast of the Assumption. The archbishop down the street said that Dick Durbin cannot accept communion in the Roman Catholic Church. It means nothing to Dick Durbin because Dick Durbin is about power, that’s what drives him, that’s all that matters to him… He’s a dangerous guy… I need you to help me kick slick Dick to the curb.

* Curran explained his narrow 2018 reelection loss

Lake County is not purple, it’s blue, folks. You know, the wrong people moved in, what have you. We need to change that and we will!

* On his switch from the Democratic to Republican parties

I said they’re heading for evil, I want nothing to do with that, I’m done.

*** UPDATE *** Meanwhile, US Senate candidate Peggy Hubbard claimed she had to literally fight off a forced abortion while serving in the Reagan-era armed forces and said Sen. Durbin has never set foot in East St. Louis (the town of his birth). She also touted her fight to stop the removal of statues honoring the Confederacy. I kid you not.

…Adding… One of those “wrong people”?

A traffic altercation near Gurnee Wednesday morning led to a felony hate crime charge against a man from unincorporated Gurnee who attacked a motorcyclist with an ice pick while yelling “racial slurs and racial expletives,” according to the Lake County Sheriff’s Office. […]

A 57-year-old man from unincorporated Gurnee called the sheriff’s office around 11:35 a.m. Wednesday after he said he was attacked by a man wielding an ice pick and shouting racial slurs and expletives, according to the news release.

The man, who police said was Hispanic and had a Mexican flag on his motorcycle, had been traveling northbound on North Delany Road near Sunset Avenue in unincorporated Gurnee when a 2009 Hyundai SUV abruptly changed lanes and cut him off, according to the release.

    “The wrong people moved in.” Wow. Seems like the wrong person is running.

    Between 2000 and 2010, Lake county saw a 77% rise in its Asian population and a 51% rise in its Hispanic population.

    During the same time, it saw just a 2% rise in its White population.

    That “the wrong people moved in” comment was clear.

    Mark Curran, go out and raise $1 million between now and the end of September and prove you are viable and talk tough then. Convince people to put their money where there mouths are in $2800 increments.

    And file your FEC paperwork before talking tough so people can send contributions to you!

    Put another way, “talk’s cheap”.

    “slick Dick Durbin”

    Trump is killing Republicans in the collars so…let’s be like Trump. Lol, smart, brains.

    “You know, the wrong people moved in”

    No need to elaborate. Trump and some or many in the GOP want white people only, from European countries. But again, with Trump dragging down the ILGOP and after getting crushed in 2018, good luck with that.


  5. - Lake County Voter - Thursday, Aug 15, 19 @ 9:20 am:

    Which people does this extremely religious man think are the “wrong” people in his community?

    Does he want to put us in cages like President Donald J. Fraud & Failure?


  6. - qualified someone nobody sent - Thursday, Aug 15, 19 @ 9:20 am:

    Trump light.


  7. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 15, 19 @ 9:20 am:

    The ILGOP allowed a “German National Socialist” to run for Congress because they are clueless, now they are thinking “this is fine”, because anger is the Raunerite brand so saying off-putting remarks is… fine.

    Love the Rauner-Trump years.

    I never have to guess who people are, and what they are about.

    That’s the only good of Rauner and Trump.


  8. - P - Thursday, Aug 15, 19 @ 9:22 am:

    How long til Mike Bost campaigns for him. Sadly Curran would fit right in on the right side of the aisle in Congress.


  9. - The Mythical Middle - Thursday, Aug 15, 19 @ 9:23 am:

    “He’s in leadership, but ultimately his god is power.”

    I guess commas are segues now.


  10. - Lt. Guv - Thursday, Aug 15, 19 @ 9:24 am:

    “Wrong people.” Please define Mr. Curran. To some it may appear as you’re blatantly prejudiced.


  11. - Demoralized - Thursday, Aug 15, 19 @ 9:25 am:

    ==the wrong people moved in==

    Well he’s certainly got the talking points of the Republican Party of Trump down pat.

    I’m more and more ashamed every day of what we are becoming in this country.


  12. - OneMan - Thursday, Aug 15, 19 @ 9:25 am:

    You know, the wrong people moved in, what have you. We need to change that and we will

    What does he mean by that? I can’t think of anyway of looking at that which results in this being remotely acceptable.

    If this guy is even considered a tier three candidate by the GOP in Illinois it is obvious we are in for a long-long-long period of single party rule as well they should be.

    Congratulations GOP, the fact this guy wasn’t boo’d off stage when he said that is proof to me that I am never coming back.


  13. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 15, 19 @ 9:25 am:

    ===She also touted her fight to stop the removal of statues honoring the Confederacy. I kid you not.===

    “Wrong People”

    Racism is a calling card now.

    Vote accordingly.


  14. - Grandson of Man - Thursday, Aug 15, 19 @ 9:27 am:

    “To some it may appear as you’re blatantly prejudiced.”

    Trump is making racism safe again. White replacement fear and phony grievances are dangerous.


  15. - Nick Name - Thursday, Aug 15, 19 @ 9:29 am:

    If we could get through the next 15 months without anyone saying “slick Dick,” that’d be nice.

    To the post

    === He’s as partisan a member of the United States Senate as there is===

    More partisan than #Moscowmitch?

    ===ultimately his god is power===

    Eh, careful there. Recreational cannabis isn’t legal until January 1.

    ==Today for Catholics is the Feast of the Assumption.===

    Do not, under any circumstances, drag the Virgin Mary into this. You mock her. You mock our Catholic faith. Sen. Durbin, right or wrong, is following the dictates of his conscience. You’re just a politician who came up with the worse nickname of an opponent ever.

    ===The archbishop down the street===

    If you’re in Springfield, the Thomas Paprocki is just a bishop, not an archbishop. Keep up.

    ===Durbin is about power, that’s what drives him, that’s all that matters to him… He’s a dangerous guy===

    Again, lay off the weed, even after Jan. 1. It clearly does not agree with you.

    ===I need you to help me kick slick Dick to the curb.===

    Just, stop. Campaigning is for grownups, not adolescents.


  16. - Nick Name - Thursday, Aug 15, 19 @ 9:29 am:

    ===You know, the wrong people moved in, what have you.===

    And that is one heck of a dog whistle.

    Maybe Peggy will demand his Birth Certificate next?


  19. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 15, 19 @ 9:32 am:

    Let’s be clear.

    Crystal. Clear.

    No ambiguity.

    ===…the fact this guy wasn’t boo’d off stage when he said that is proof to me that I am never coming back.===

    This is why the Trump party is old, angry, white, rural… and can’t find a foothold in the collars, with women… millennials, minorities…

    I greatly respect - OneMan -, even as we battled, because never at ANY point did I feel - OneMan - was willing to compromise what was right or just to be a partisan.

    “…the fact this guy wasn’t boo’d off stage when he said that is proof to me that I am never coming back.”

    The ILGOP is a party welcoming racist views. They allowed a “German National Socialist” be the party nominee in a congressional race, they have House Caucus members supporting a “51st state”

    The ILGOP?

    “We’re good”


  20. - Jibba - Thursday, Aug 15, 19 @ 9:33 am:

    ===She also touted her fight to stop the removal of statues honoring the Confederacy===

    She just locked up the North Kentucky vote, although it is baffling as to why they would support Confederate statues.


  21. - OneMan - Thursday, Aug 15, 19 @ 9:33 am:

    Congratulations, you are making Alan Keyes seem like a logical and rational choice.

    No (word we can’t use here), if I was a county chair I would stand up and say “What is wrong with you (a different word I can’t use here) people”

    Someone in that room grow a dang spine and stand up.


  22. - brickle - Thursday, Aug 15, 19 @ 9:34 am:

    white nationalism is the core of the modern GOP

    Are they serving Cocoa Puffs at this breakfast? Because these folks seem kind of cuckoo…


  24. - Steve - Thursday, Aug 15, 19 @ 9:34 am:

    Condemning voters is never a winning strategy. Dick Durbin isn’t an easy politician to defeat , for a Republican in a Democratic state. But, the way to do it is: 1) attack his long tenure in the Senate (for those who want a change). Illinois is a loser in money received from the federal government 2) Question his wife’s career as lobbyist/ consultant. It ’s not much but attacking voters isn’t appropriate.


  25. - a drop in - Thursday, Aug 15, 19 @ 9:36 am:

    I’m condemning racist.

    Keep up, you’re embarrassing yourself defending racist.


  27. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 15, 19 @ 9:39 am:

    ===It ’s not much but attacking voters isn’t appropriate.===

    “Isn’t appropriate”?

    Wow, that’s a condemnation.


  28. - Not a Superstar - Thursday, Aug 15, 19 @ 9:42 am:

    Peggy Hubbard, courting the Diamond and Silk vote.

    Seriously, this is all primal scream therapy that would make Howard Dean blush. The ILGOP should follow the example of Joe Walsh.


  29. - Tired Teacher - Thursday, Aug 15, 19 @ 9:42 am:

    I recently looked over the comments of Jim Edgar from a recent interview. How in goodness name the ILGOP has moved from that good man to people like this is one of the great disappointments in our state. The party of Lincoln now tolerates hate and bigotry. Incredible and sad.


  30. - Publius - Thursday, Aug 15, 19 @ 9:43 am:

    Could his statement give every person of color that was arrested or fined by the lake county sheriff’s department an opportunity to appeal their convictions?


  31. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 15, 19 @ 9:44 am:

    ===No (word we can’t use here), if I was a county chair I would stand up and say “What is wrong with you (a different word I can’t use here) people”

    Someone in that room grow a dang spine and stand up.===

    If you forget that not one person stood up to at the minimum to condemn this talk… that’s all you really need to remind folks.

    Also…

    Hours after this, y’all wanna try to say “the right thing”

    No. That’s not how it works in “instant twitter” world

    You sat there. You did nothing. You applauded.

    That’s who you are.


  32. - Steve - Thursday, Aug 15, 19 @ 9:48 am:

    I’m not defending anyone here. Especially candidates I’ve never heard of until this morning.


  33. - Nagidam - Thursday, Aug 15, 19 @ 9:49 am:

    There is really no semblance of the Republican Party I used to know in todays “Republican” Candidates. Where is the direction? All I see is a pathetic pandering to a declining racist base. The more sane people that leave the party leaves a more racist base that the “Republican” candidates pander to. A vicious downward death cycle.


  34. - Langhorne - Thursday, Aug 15, 19 @ 9:49 am:

    Maybe Peggy can get Steve King to speak at her fundraiser. Have Confederate Railroad warm up the crowd. And then she can roll in on her Harley.

  38. - Da Big Bad Wolf - Thursday, Aug 15, 19 @ 9:54 am:

    Dear Mark Curran, 1. You want power too, don’t you? Why else would you run to be a US Senator?
    2.”The archbishop down the street said that Dick Durbin cannot accept communion in the Roman Catholic Church.” Does this archbishop have a name? It’s not a sin to refuse to punish people who have sinned. Jesus stopped people were going to throw rocks at the woman who had commuted adultery. That doesn’t mean Jesus was pro-adultery.
    3. “The wrong people moved in.” So what? As the potential sheriff it would have been your job to represent the people in your area. Wrong people, right people, so/so people. As a senate candidate it’s your job to persuade who ever will be your constituents that you will do a good job for them. “Wrong people” or not.
    4. “I said they’re heading for evil.” Blah blah blah. Make your case why you would serve the people better than Durbin and I’ll listen.

    To confederate monuments.

    I spent some time in the “South” recently.

    Not the tourist places, but in some towns, in actual neighborhoods, off the path places.

    I drove down Jefferson Davis Highway.

    I went past the statue of Nathan Bedford Forrest

    I read plaques in out of the way places describing union soldiers as the enemy, I read others that touted the heroism of confederates holding off the invaders.

    I stood… in a market now of goods and trinkets… where slaves stood, and were held, and were auctioned…

    I ate… in houses where slaves served their masters… I was in a room where Robert E. Lee slept.

    I’m NO different than ANY person.

    But, me, you open your eyes and read words, and see the reminders in everyday lives… in neighborhoods… and local’s everyday lives… and you still feel this need to celebrate the confederacy…

    It is a wake up call to who you are.

    Tired Teacher-
    My opinion is the election of Trump gave a lot of people the feeling that they can now openly voice what they have always truly felt.
    Sadly, we’ll never see another Thompson, Bush Sr. or Dole running for executive office on the GOP ticket.

  55. - PaperTiger - Thursday, Aug 15, 19 @ 10:39 am:

    Mark Curran was a hare-brained assistant state’s attorney passed over many times for promotion. He’s a Christian zealot who wanted to impose Bible study on inmates at the Lake County Jail. His views do not reflect Lake County, Illinois or the US Constitution.

    Is “slick dick” really the name you want to use?
    As a frontline canvasser I’m not seeing this play with the older folks.
    But maybe I’m wrong
    Maybe the way of the shock jock works now with the
    old and angry.
    Maybe they’ve secretly longed to say
    slick Dick
    I don’t know

    Pandering to the lowest
    sure doesn’t seem a good strategy
    At least not without GRU assistance with social media.

  60. - Rudy’s teeth - Thursday, Aug 15, 19 @ 11:01 am:

    Curran should be aware of his rhetoric regarding the Catholic Church and communion. For many, it brings to mind the pedophiles in the church…particularly Dan McCormack. It makes me sick that I attended mass and received communion from that pedophile when I worked at St. Agatha in Chicago. At least, McCormack remains behind bars.

    @ OW 10:03 ==It is a wake up call to who you are.==

    Amen. I lived in two southern states for a total of thirteen years (not including military service). On my daily walk to work, I passed buildings named for Confederate generals and statues memorializing the Confederate cause. Such things were in almost every town, large or small.

    From this I learned two lessons. First, it’s not over, it’s still being fought in people’s minds and spirits. When you hear intelligent people seriously refer to “The War of Northern Aggression,” you have to wonder if it will ever be over.

    Second, when in Richmond, VA, do not publicly refer to “Monument Alley” as “Losers Lane.” But at least the restaurant I was thrown out of did not make me pay for my uneaten meal.

    If you wonder about Mark Curran’s brain function ask those of us who have lived with him and his strange way of doing things for years.
    Better yet, read a copy of the Article he wrote for the July Lake County Bar Journal magazine. In that Article he spent 4 pages expressing his opinions of Police Officers. He stressed 2 points: Most if not all police officers when testifying dont tell the truth under oath and all Police Officers will conceal the wrong doings of other police officers. If Durbin’s campaign doesn’t have a copy they should get one. Every current of former cop should be out campaigning against this guy and his far out wacky outlook on life and religion. If they see the article or know about it they will be. Need a copy? email me at gooch@goochfirm.com
