Conspiracy theorist claims there’s a state conspiracy against him

Thursday, Dec 12, 2019

* An unusual objection was filed this week against Republican congressional candidate Bill Fawell’s petitions

Wut?

* Fawell, you may recall, is a conspiracy theorist who was rejected by the ILGOP last year

State Republican party chairman Tim Schneider, Rock Island County Republican party central committee chair Drue Mielke, and Republican state central committeeman for the 17th Congressional District, Jan Weber, removed their support of Fawell on Tuesday.

All three officials cite posts on Fawell’s campaign Facebook page, Elect Fawell, in which Fawell appears to support 9/11 conspiracy theories, and called some mass shootings “false flag” events.

* So, naturally, he’s at it again. Press release

“Yesterday, the Illinois Election Commission repealed 235 years of legal precedent and accepted as a plaintiff, “Unknown”, to contest my petitions to appear on the ballot for Congress in the 17th Congressional District of Illinois in “Unknown vs Fawell,” Bill Fawell announced today. “Only in the hopelessly corrupt State of Illinois could government have raised the bar of unprecedented corruption and incompetence to a whole new paradigm.” […]

(I)n the entire 235 years of legal history in the United States of America, courts have required there be a plaintiff in all lawsuits and legal actions against persons or entities in accordance with the 4th Amendment, legal precedent and common sense. […]

“I must be a pretty dangerous fellow to attract the national attention of the Republican and Democratic party machines of corruption,… and I am,” Fawell confessed, “because I represent the People and support President Trump’s Inauguration Promise to return the powers of government back to the People. Clearly, anyone who has attracted the deranged enmity of both parties must be doing something very right.”

“Accordingly, my campaign slogans are “People B4 Parties” highlighted by my “Let the People Rule” legislation; and I will never bow nor surrender to the corruption that grips America today,” promised Fawell. “This is what scares them into committing desperate acts like this in, “Unknown vs Fawell.”

“Clearly We are Winning.”

* I reached out to Matt Dietrich at the Illinois State Board of Elections…

This was an objection that was filed at 4:58 p.m. on the final day of filing. During the intake process it was discovered that it did not contain the required identification of the objector. Since it was already time-stamped and entered into the system, our staff decided to leave it and let the board decide its fate. So it will go before the board at Tuesday’s meeting and the board members will vote whether to reject it or allow it to proceed.

    Correction: A national conspiracy orchestrated by “the Republican and Democratic party machines of corruption”

    == “because I represent the People and support President Trump’s Inauguration Promise to return the powers of government back to the People.”
    What day were the powers of government returned to the people? Aw shucks, did I miss it?

    “in accordance with the 4th Amendment….”??????

    Fawell’s post reminds me of the greatest Onion headline ever: https://www.theonion.com/area-man-passionate-defender-of-what-he-imagines-consti-1819571149

    == I represent the People and support President Trump’s Inauguration Promise to return the powers of government back to the People.==

    Can we start by installing the presidential candidate that got 3 million more votes than the other guy?

    The flip side of all this are the ILRaunerites who won’t denounce some of the thoughts of the Hateful Eight and the elected members of the Illinois General Assembly forcing a “51st state” narrative.

    With that prism and how they handled (or didn’t handle) a national socialist as the nominee in 2016 for the 3rd Congressional… I don’t take too much stock in, first, the phony angst Schneider is showing, in actuality it’s in complete measure with Fawell thinking there’s a conspiracy going on.

    It’s a bad off-broadway play.


  7. - Lester Holt’s Mustache - Thursday, Dec 12, 19 @ 12:05 pm:

    Candidate Phillip D. Unknown rejects Fawell’s assertions as false and defamatory, and adds “My platform uses fully spelled-out words to communicate our message. You know, like an adult”.


  8. - Streator Curmudgeon - Thursday, Dec 12, 19 @ 12:09 pm:

    My guess is that the last-minute objection was filed by one of the Reptilians.

    Filing offices take what is presented (if the requisite 2 copies are with it).
    It will be an easy win with a motion to dismiss.


  13. - @misterjayem - Thursday, Dec 12, 19 @ 2:54 pm:

    Unknown vs Fawell was an inside job.

    – MrJM


  14. - Back to the Future - Thursday, Dec 12, 19 @ 3:18 pm:

    If the contest is between Unknown and Fawell I would vote for Unknown,


  15. - Skeptic - Thursday, Dec 12, 19 @ 3:37 pm:

    Stay tuned for the new hit single, “96 Votes” by Fawell and the Unknowns.


  16. - Bruce (no not him) - Thursday, Dec 12, 19 @ 4:03 pm:

    Just because you say there is no conspiracy, doesn’t mean there is no conspiracy. /s


  17. - R A T - Thursday, Dec 12, 19 @ 4:15 pm:

    And I disagree with the following statement as I firmly believe/hope 49 States would oppose you Mr Fawell:

    “Only in the hopelessly corrupt State of Illinois…”
