* Pritzker campaign…
One day before Bailey takes the stage at a debate hosted by ISU and AARP, Bailey is caught calling the organization “selfish” and “immoral”
Normal, IL — Just one day before Darren Bailey faces off against Governor JB Pritzker, a newly uncovered video shows Bailey bashing AARP––one of the non-profit, non-partisan organizations hosting the first televised statewide debate.
In a newly uncovered Facebook Live video from 2020, Bailey called the organization “selfish,” “immoral,” and is leading to the “destruction of society as we know it.”
Don’t believe us? Listen for yourself.
“Another article that came out last night, that I shared the money continues to pour in, uh, to Mike Madigan. And it’s coming from organizations like the Illinois Education Association, it’s coming from organizations like AARP who are supposed to be ultimately protecting the rights of, of the elderly. Uh, but they’re not, they’re they’re, they are part of the reason, uh, that government continues to grow erratically. And, and, and now that reason that we need government needs your money. Many of the, uh, state sector unions are behind, uh, are behind a dumping money into Mike Madigan’s pocket. So, uh, again, they have a selfish view of, we want more, that’s their, that’s their message. And that’s what they’re after and why on earth. Um, many of these organizations choose to, uh, solicit to, you know, the immoral ideas like abortion and, and recreational marijuana and on and on and on. I have no idea, but they do, they’re pushing this. It’s just almost, uh, the, the destruction of society as we know it.”
The video is here. Starts around the 7 minute mark.
I checked and couldn’t find any contributions from AARP or the American Association of Retired Persons to Friends of Michael Madigan, the Democratic Party of Illinois, Democratic Majority or the 13th Ward Democratic Organization.
The group did, however, give more than half a million dollars to push the graduated income tax in 2020. And Bailey did talk extensively about opposing the Fair Tax before he went off on the Madigan tangent. So, maybe that’s what he meant?
