Rep. Delgado qualifications hearing won’t happen until after the primary

Tuesday, Feb 25, 2020

* Background is here if you need it. The House Qualifications Challenge Committee met today for the first time for about ten minutes. The committee was created after two members, House Republican Leader Jim Durkin and Rep. Anne Stava-Murray (D-Naperville) challenged the qualifications of Rep. Eva Dina Delgado (D-Chicago), who was appointed to fill former Rep. Luis Arroyo’s seat with proxy votes from Arroyo’s 36th Ward organization.

Chairman Chris Welch read part of the rules during the hearing, which mirror those from the last such challenge

Respondent [Delgado] shall have ten days from today’s hearing to respond. Petitioners [Durkin and Stava-Murray] then have seven days to respond and then respondent will be given seven days to respond.

* Here’s the schedule…

Respondent: Friday, March 6th.

Petitioners’ responses: Friday, March 13th.

Respondent’s replies: Friday, March 20.

Hearing: Tuesday, March 25th.

Both her defense and the petitioners’ responses will be released before the March 17th primary. But the hearing won’t happen until well after the primary.

* Rep. Delgado’s statement…

    Hopefully the voters will do what the GA finds itself unable. Don’t believe Arroyo knew nothing about how his votes would be used

    I’m still surprised that madigan made an open threat and now isn’t following through. I’d have thought he knew better.

    ===I’m still surprised that madigan made an open threat and now isn’t following through===

    My guess is he thought the threat would stop them.

    Not much to say about this. My earlier prediction that this will quietly fade away after the primary if she wins still holds.

    A total nothing burger.

    I think, for me, that the passively-active way that the dragging of the feet to get beyond the primary allows for an electoral justification or an electoral repudiation, and anything after March 18th might allow for this to sort itself out for any and all to show they are on the correct side.

    Congrats to the foot dragging for making this such a fizzling zero, while looking like it was critical to the integrity of the body.

    Eva shouldn’t be punished for Luis’. Iris Martinez received her LatinX appointment wish. Let the voters decide, not ILGA.


  9. - Oak Parker - Tuesday, Feb 25, 20 @ 4:27 pm:

    If we have the Committeeperson system, this situation will repeat. It’s time to amend the Constitution to have Special Elections. It’s an easy populist move


  10. - Tom Willis - Tuesday, Feb 25, 20 @ 5:40 pm:

    The Committeeperson system is fine. It’s much better than having a special election for one seat, over a 2 to 4 month wait of no representation in the meantime.
