Dave McSweeney Claims Almost $200,000 from Madigan & Allies for Dee Beaubien, Beaubien Won’t Say Whom She Will Support for Speaker
A press release from Republican State Rep. candidate David McSweeney:
Michael Madigan and Company in for Nearly $200,000 for “Independent” Beaubien
Barrington Hills, IL – Self described “independent” candidate for Representative in the 52nd District Dee Beaubien has just reported receiving a cash infusion of approximately $100,000 from Democrat Speaker Michael Madigan and a host of far-left Democrat Party special interests.
This brings the total Madigan commitment to nearly $200,000 for liberal Dee Beaubien. The Madigan money is being used to wage a negative and misleading campaign.
“Dee Beaubien’s continued claims of being an ‘independent’ are an insult to the voters of the 52nd District.
“Her failing campaign has received no meaningful support in the district.
“The overwhelming majority of her support comes from Madigan and the far-left special interests.
“It is clear that Madigan has found another champion in Dee for his cause agenda of more taxes and spending,” said David McSweeney.
“I am running for State Representative because I believe in lower taxes, less spending, and limiting property taxes.
“Speaker Madigan does not support anyone who does not support his agenda.
“Dee is totally joined at the hip with Madigan and his agenda,” said McSweeney.
“The Democrats have controlled Springfield for a decade and the result is a state budget crisis that grows daily.
“The 67% tax hike is killing small business jobs every day.
“The results of the Madigan/Dee Beaubien policies are more debt, a pension problem that threatens the entire state budget, downgrades of Illinois’ credit ratings, and higher unemployment.
“These policies have failed and the people of the 52nd District want a change in the direction that we are currently headed.
“I will continue to work hard to get my positive message out the people of this district and am confident of victory” said McSweeney.

In other news, the Daily Herald’s Mike Riopel reportsBeaubien won’t say whether she will vote for Mike Madigan or Tom Cross for Illinois House Speaker:
“I’m going to stick to my same answer: I’m not elected yet.”
I have speculated that Beaubien is Mike Madigan’s “hole card,” that he will not “request” her vote unless he needs it. If she voted for Cross, then Madigan could have a way to find out GOP strategy.
