ILGOP chairman wonders aloud if SoS “glitch” was “done on purpose”

Monday, Jan 27, 2020

* Illinois Republican Party Chairman Tim Schneider was on WJPF today and was asked about the automatic voter registration “glitch” at the secretary of state’s office

When you look at the rhetoric that they espouse every day, the Democrats, they’re always, they’re, they’re asking for illegal immigrants to be able to vote. So, when you see, and these are just non-citizens who got greencard holders and the like who are here legally but were non-citizens who were registered to vote here.

But if you take their rhetoric and you put it together, you wonder if this was really done on purpose or if it was just a so-called glitch as you call it.

    Instead of just making hay against one party rule from the sloppiness of it all and the lack of being forthcoming about it, he goes full foot in mouth. How to win friends and influence people.

    It really shows how being as crazy as possible is the only way Republicans can get any attention these days. Sheesh.


  3. - Amalia - Monday, Jan 27, 20 @ 4:18 pm:

    well Tim, you can be happy that if that is what they intended to do they did a terrible job cause those numbers are horrible compared to the population out there.

    From reading that statement, especially the first paragraph, I figured it had to have been made by someone whose first language was not English. I couldn’t figure out why an immigrant would be so anti-immigrant.


  5. - Chicago Cynic - Monday, Jan 27, 20 @ 4:24 pm:

    Tim Schneider needs to go away. He’s definitely not helping the Republican Party these days. What a piece of work.


  6. - Annonin' - Monday, Jan 27, 20 @ 4:24 pm:

    Gotta love when the CarWashKing tries to look relevant. Hope some Chicago station gets Tom Miller’s audio and runs it up north.

    LOL

    That tin foil hat by Rauner-chosen Tim Schneider is feeding into the old angry white rural voter and at the same time calling into question the legitimacy of the process.

    ===…registration information of 574 people was “improperly forwarded” to local election authorities to be registered, even though those people had indicated while at secretary of state facilities that they were not citizens.===

    How does that reconcile with the Raunerite’s version of things?

    =But if you take their rhetoric and you put it together=

    Admittedly I’m not a Democrat so I’m not exactly sure what he’s trying to convey. Exactly what rhetoric am I supposed to take to put it together?


  9. - Dance Band on the Titanic - Monday, Jan 27, 20 @ 4:37 pm:

    If this was really part of some grand conspiracy to systematically allow illegal immigrants to be able to vote, then the 15 or so who may have voted as a result of this indicate that SoS office did a really poor job of implementing that plan.


  10. - Grandson of Man - Monday, Jan 27, 20 @ 4:38 pm:

    The mouth-foaming delusion would be hilarious if xenophobia and nativism weren’t main GOP positions. Keep growing that base, ILGOP.


  11. - Nick Name - Monday, Jan 27, 20 @ 4:42 pm:

    Dear Tim: this is Illinois, not Trump’s Twitter feed. Grow up.


  12. - Da Big Bad Wolf - Monday, Jan 27, 20 @ 4:43 pm:

    == the Democrats, they’re always, they’re, they’re asking for illegal immigrants to be able to vote.==
    When did a Democrat ask for illegal immigrants to be able to vote in national elections and did that Democrat have a name?


  13. - Bruce (no not him) - Monday, Jan 27, 20 @ 4:45 pm:

    Of course it was done intentionally. Look at what those 16 voters got them. Weeks worth of bad publicity. Worth it. /s


  14. - Demoralized - Monday, Jan 27, 20 @ 4:47 pm:

    I think he’s cut off the blood supply to his head with his tinfoil hat.

    Nobody has once asked for illegal immigrants to be able to vote.

    And Illinois Republicans ask themselves why they are in the super minority. This is their party “leadership” talking.

    Sheesh.


  15. - Candy Dogood - Monday, Jan 27, 20 @ 4:54 pm:

    His party holds duel super minority caucuses in the legislature and no statewide offices because his party is focused on creating problems by promising policy to solve problems that don’t actually exist.


  16. - Moe Berg - Monday, Jan 27, 20 @ 5:07 pm:

    Fox & Friends eated Tim’s brain.


  17. - Gohawks123 - Monday, Jan 27, 20 @ 5:08 pm:

    I was a tad early! I did see it last week Rich but I was curious if they would do it again.


  18. - @misterjayem - Monday, Jan 27, 20 @ 5:13 pm:

    The ILGOP chairman’s statement is paranoid and foolish, but remarkably on-brand.

    – MrJM


  19. - Yellow Dog Democrat - Monday, Jan 27, 20 @ 5:15 pm:

    It is refreshing to see Tim Schneider and the Illinois GOP get worked up about alleged foreign interference in our elections

    for a change.


  20. - Levois J - Monday, Jan 27, 20 @ 6:05 pm:

    If you wonder aloud have some evidence to back it up!


  21. - Ducky LaMoore - Monday, Jan 27, 20 @ 6:22 pm:

    Has the ILGOP officially merged with the Onion yet? Or did the Onion find them too ironical?


  22. - IT Guy - Monday, Jan 27, 20 @ 6:53 pm:

    As an independent voter statements like this makes it less likely I’ll vote for a Republican.


  23. - @misterjayem - Monday, Jan 27, 20 @ 6:57 pm:

    “GIVE ME A BREAK WE ALL KNOW…”

    As I said: remarkably on-brand.

    – MrJM


  24. - Michelle Flaherty - Monday, Jan 27, 20 @ 7:18 pm:

    No more interviews when you’re high Mr. Chairman, OK?


  25. - ArchPundit - Monday, Jan 27, 20 @ 8:07 pm:

    15 people cast votes. That’s quite a conspiracy.

    Look, the SOS needs to fix this and it’s a serious issue, but if you are charging a wide ranging conspiracy, more than 15 people would have voted.


  26. - Gooner - Monday, Jan 27, 20 @ 8:08 pm:

    What is sort of funny is that “Latina” above is unfortunately close to the views (or expressed views, if not actually held views) of much of the ILGOP leadership.

    And then they wonder why moderates keep voting for Democrats.


  27. - ArchPundit - Monday, Jan 27, 20 @ 8:10 pm:

    === HALF A MILLION ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS VOTE IN ILLINOIS. THAT’S WHY DEMOCRATS ARE ALWAYS PANDERING TO THEM.

    Yes, 10 percent of the votes were from non-citizens. Sure.

    I can’t tell what is parody and what isn’t anymore.


  28. - thoughts matter - Monday, Jan 27, 20 @ 8:32 pm:

    That’s highly insulting. He’s questioning the honesty of career state workers who aren’t patronage hires just because he can. As others said, it’s been bad publicity and the employees are embarrassed.


  29. - 47th Ward - Monday, Jan 27, 20 @ 9:51 pm:

    ===As I said: remarkably on-brand.===

    ===I can’t tell what is parody and what isn’t anymore.===

    You really need a like button.


  30. - ArchPundit - Monday, Jan 27, 20 @ 11:51 pm:

    ===You really need a like button.

    But is it used ironically or seriously? I just can’t tell anymore.


  31. - Elliott Ness - Tuesday, Jan 28, 20 @ 6:36 am:

    GOP needs to spend more time attempting to get the Latino and immigrant vote and much less time trying to suppress it. the issue is NOT the 16 votes - the issue is they don’t have a plan to secure the larger mass of immigrant voters now or in the future. This means failure in Illinois. First step: Try, try, try, try to be rationale. But alas, this is the party of the Eastern Blockheads.


  32. - PrairieDog - Tuesday, Jan 28, 20 @ 2:08 pm:

    Elliot Ness,

    You’d only accuse Republicans of pandering if they did what you suggest.
