Gaffney Files With More Money

Fox River Grove, IL – State Representative Kent Gaffney (R-Lake Barrington) has filed with $36,336 cash on hand going into the final two months of the Republican Primary.

His opponents filed with significantly less –

  • McSweeney at $27,779 (with over $20,000 in outstanding bills) cash on hand and
  • Danielle Rowe with $8,532 cash on hand.

McSweeney spent much of his money to mount outrageous petition challenges against both of his rivals.

The total receipts by the end of the year for his petition challenges amount to over $18,000, over $13,000 in lawyer fees alone.

Many Republican leaders within the district and around the State have expressed outrage at the bully tactics the McSweeney campaign has implemented through these petition challenges.

“That money could have been used to open an office and have a conversation with the voters but Mr. McSweeney chose to hire trial layers to manufacture baseless allegations and try and clear the field.” Kent said.

“I am proud that my campaign is focused on talking to voters in the district about my ideas on how to get the state’s finances in order and how to improve the business climate in Illinois.”

So far Representative Gaffney has announced endorsements of nearly 40 elected officials from all four counties in the new 52nd House District, which includes portions of Cook, Kane, Lake and McHenry counties.

  1. Lol. If Gaffney’s lucky, he’ll even be on the ballot to compete against Danielle Rowe and McSweeney.

    Kent is one tough incumbent.

  2. I still wonder if Gaffney or his IL GOP staffers will stay out of prison.

    A pattern of fraud isn’t an effective campaign.

  3. I wonder if Mcsweeney will ever offer any proof of his allegations or will he just wait to apologize after the defamation suit.

  4. **A pattern of fraud isn’t an effective campaign.**

    Sure… except that there is no pattern.

    Which is why McSweeney can’t give any evidence to support his accusations.

    Hell… one of the two staffers he is accusing of fraud was even on a leave of absence.

    McSweeney should go try to buy something else, instead of an election.
