* An Illinoisan sent a blast email to legislators last night

Pritzker got 98% of the black vote. Its time we get a return. He has said “its hard being black…and we must do something about it” this Executive Order is the something.

The person apparently used an old email list which included folks who lost their reelections. Former Rep. John Cabello (R-Machesney Park) hit “reply all” from his official ilhousegop.org address

Pritzer should be in jail for his crimes.

* Some members were grumbling about it this morning, particularly since Cabello continues to relentlessly troll Pritzker on Twitter. So, I asked why he still has access to his official account, even though he lost reelection. The reply…

Our policy is to shut down all accounts including emails, social media and websites 30 days after a member leaves office. This is to give time for the transition to a new office holder, and allow for any wrap up of constituent work and other outstanding items.

    Must be awkward having to share the office for 30 days too…

    What an odd thing to allow.

    Hope Mr. Cabello finds the health care support he needs. His comments reflect a severe break from reality.

    There’s no shortage of technologically challenged individuals providing entertainment who still can’t grasp the concept of reply all.

    Nothing like a police officer providing a great advertisement for police reforms: Calling for political leaders to be jailed based solely on disagreements.

    “ Pritzer should be in jail for his crimes.”

    Okay, what crimes? Can you name a statute? No, I didn’t think so. I’m so sick of these crypto fascist gaslighting politicos.

    Guarantee you won’t see the thin blue line crowd show up on this post though.

    And as soon as I can put drugs/a gun on him he will.

    Looks like a lot of criminal defense attorneys and appellate attorneys in the Rockford area are going to have a nice exhibit for when they go after cases Cabello was (is?) involved in. Probably should have saved the reply all rant for an email about a subject other than African Americans.

    =Pritzer should be in jail for his crimes.=

    Transcendently stupid.


  10. - Grandson of Man - Friday, Jan 22, 21 @ 12:50 pm:

    “Pritzer should be in jail for his crimes.”

    This Pritzer person ought to be real careful, but as far as the governor, his court rulings indicate he’s on the up and up.


  11. - Leaf - Friday, Jan 22, 21 @ 12:54 pm:

    Says the guy misusing State resources for personal attacks.


  12. - Rudy’s teeth - Friday, Jan 22, 21 @ 1:10 pm:

    Time’s up for Mr. Cabello. Also, time to step away from his keyboard.

    A gracious loser he is not.


  13. - don the legend - Friday, Jan 22, 21 @ 2:38 pm:

    John Cabello lost. In very rare instances is what the loser thinks ever relevant. Losers in elections are not one of these instances.


  14. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Jan 22, 21 @ 2:45 pm:

    The thing about Cabello, he may think and believe all he says, he may troll to seem relevant and feed raw meat to the simple minded, heck, Cabello may not believe any of his ridiculousness but sees others as marks to be in the warmth of the spotlight.

    Cabello lost. Cabello is not relevant outside his own belief of what relevant means. That reality must make him more angry than to what he writes, believes, or trolls.

    Wait a second, are you tryina’ tell me that die-hard Trump supporters don’t accept the result of free and fair elections? Why I never
