  1. - Six Degrees of Separation - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 12:15 pm:

    “Our supermajority is under siege”


  2. - Don Harmon's Folly - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 12:15 pm:

    If the Democratic fundraiser letter doesn’t have the union bug at the bottom, it’s from Edmund Muskie.


  3. - Montrose - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 12:16 pm:

    Madigan is clearly embracing the Governor allowing Illinoians to resume fishing.


  4. - Keyrock - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 12:18 pm:

    Blame Madigan.


  5. - @misterjayem - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 12:19 pm:

    “Until we meet again, I wish good health to you and your loved ones.”

    Considering the source, that doesn’t not read as a threat.

    – MrJM


  6. - Snapple Lady - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 12:26 pm:

    Zoom shuttle rides, lines and awkward handshakes available by request


  7. - Da Big Bad Wolf - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 12:26 pm:

    ===We see that playing out in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota where right wing funders are organizing frightening demonstrations against Democratic governors.===

    Looking at you Liz and Dick Uihlein.

    ===Uihlein has a history of downplaying the severity of COVID-19. In a March 13 e-mail to Illinois politicians, the Uline CEO asserted, “The media is overblowing COVID-19. At what point do we go back to our normal lives? This has been a huge disruption.”===


  8. - Amalia - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 12:27 pm:

    I know what you gave last year.


  9. - We'll See - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 12:27 pm:

    Fredo is soooo happy the May meeting at the lake is off - for now.


  10. - DuPage Saint - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 12:31 pm:

    Will Com Ed give more or less than last year?


  11. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 12:31 pm:

    “Lake or no lake… rent is due”


  12. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 12:32 pm:

    “Oh… the golf outing is still on… “


  13. - Annonin - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 12:32 pm:

    How about we all paddle over to the Capt. Fax Fortress for a fun filled evening? Remember 2 per boat, social distance, face coverings blah blah AND BYOB


  14. - Boone's is Back - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 12:35 pm:

    “Join me on zoom while my staff shows me how to operate a computer”


  15. - City Zen - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 12:35 pm:

    #SupportLocalBusinesses


  16. - Give Me A Break - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 12:46 pm:

    Noted


  17. - Back to the Future - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 12:49 pm:

    Feed Me


  18. - Marquee - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 12:54 pm:

    Everybody has their own priorities


  19. - Red Ranger - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 12:58 pm:

    Them lawyers ain’t free


  20. - Huh? - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 12:59 pm:

    Evening on the lake is cancelled because the boat has yet to be put in the water.


  21. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 1:02 pm:

    ===Them lawyers ain’t free===

    Leader in the clubhouse.

    Caption?

    “Keep the boat afloat”


  22. - Nagidam - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 1:02 pm:

    “I ask you to match your donations from 2018 and 2019.”

    By that I mean add those two numbers together and match it.


  23. - PublicServant - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 1:02 pm:

    Caption - Madigan disappoints boaters.

    A new fundraiser could be entitled “An Evening on the Golf Course”, and be much more doable with proper social-distancing dontcha know.


  24. - Chicagonk - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 1:04 pm:

    Click here and donate


  25. - Lucky Pierre - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 1:13 pm:

    In this era of social distancing please process bribes using Venmo and Zelle.


  26. - Ron Burgundy - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 1:17 pm:

    I am also “monitoring.”


  27. - DuPage Saint - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 1:23 pm:

    Golf outing is a great idea. Maybe Senator Sandavol would let them use his old site. I don’t think they he Senator needs it this year


  28. - Altgelds Ghost - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 1:52 pm:

    The guy has been absent for the entire crisis. The GA has not acted at all. He has been absent from all public press briefings with the Governor. I don’t think he’s done any skype or zoom interviews or open meetings.

    Yet he has the gall to send out this letter just as the word is being spread by his people that a BIMP is being put together. Disgusting

    The ridiculous scare tactic choice of language in his letter is insulting. Why can we expect the “same dynamic to play out in Illinois this November?” Illinois has a billionaire Democrat Governor with a 70% approval rating.

    Madigan is shameless.


  29. - Louis G Atsaves - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 2:14 pm:

    Republican extremists and right wing funders have been organizing frightening demonstrations against Democratic Governors? When did Speaker of the House and Illinois Democratic Party Chairman Madigan turn into such a snowflake? /snark


  30. - Hard D - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 2:22 pm:

    I like MM but this is in bad taste and extremely bad timing. The guy just showed no concern for the everyday citizens of this state. He’s been a recluse throughout all this coronavirus issue but has the gall to send out a fundraising letter.
    Unacceptable truly unacceptable as Brandon Marshall said


  31. - Commonsense in Illinois - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 2:23 pm:

    PS Stay safe - write a big check.


  32. - Fighter of Foo - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 2:28 pm:

    “The more you give, the safer you are, from me, not the Covid”


  33. - Generic Drone - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 2:33 pm:

    Needy pockets to fill.


  34. - Just Me 2 - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 3:14 pm:

    “We can’t serve you, but please continue to serve us.”


  35. - Just Me 2 - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 3:14 pm:

    “OMG! We can’t rig the remap like we planned! Give until it hurts!”


  36. - Huh? - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 5:45 pm:

    Bust
    Out
    Another
    Thousand


  37. - Henry - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 8:21 pm:

    Money never sleeps.


  38. - The Night Fox - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 9:46 pm:

    Reminds me of Donnie Brasco…the boat and those watching.
