One of the impressive candidates who spoke at the rally of those Republicans seeking to reform the local GOP was Paul Schmipf, the retired Marine who is running against Lisa Madiagan for Illinois Attorney General.
He impressed Algonquin Township Trustee Larry Emery so much that he wrote an article on his blog.
As Emery wrote,
“We need more than one Madigan to be voted out of office.”
Take a look at his biography and you’ll get an idea why:
Yes, that Saddam Hussein.
So, what does Schimpf want to do upon election to the Office of Illinois Attorney General?
Wouldn’t that be refreshing in this, one of the most corrupt states in the nation?
And he wants to use the office as a watchdog against intrusive state government.
