And the beat goes on, demonizing Republican David McSweeney for being Pro-Life.
Below you see the second mailing from the Democratic Party of Illinois (look at the return address) preparing the way for the really atrocious mailings from the pro-abortion Personal PAC that are in the pipeline.
In concert, the McHenry County League of Women Voters allowed a question Friday night that played right into the Democrats’ campaign theme.
The question wasn’t a straight up and down one about abortion, but something like “Are politicians qualified to make medical decisions for women?”
“Absolutely not,” stated Dee Beaubien, who got to answer first.
“I don’t think government belongs in any kind of medical choice.”
Next up was State Senator Dan Duffy.
“That’s obviously a very biased, Pro-Choice question,” he exclaimed to the Pro-Choice audience.
“That’s a very leading question.”
That’s all I got, but he explained he was Pro-Life after complaining about the question.
“That’s not the government’s affair,” Duffy opponent Amanda Howland commented.
“One issue that will come up in Springfield is using taxpayer money to fund late term abortions.
“I oppose that,” McSweeney said.
The back of the latest abortion hit on McSweeney follows:

McSweeney had the opportunity to inoculate himself on the abortion issue, but did not take the initiative.
He could have compared his stand on specific aspects of the abortion issue with those of his opponent, who favors no limitations on abortion up to the day before of birth.
He laid out one specific in the debate.
I guess he could still put out a mailing, but its effect will now be diminished because he allowed Beaubien to fire the first shots via the Democratic Party.
