===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.”===
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.

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
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
