Here’s the email that arrived today from Paul Schimpf, the Republican candidate for Attorney General:
I hope you had a chance to watch the Chicago Tribune Editorial Board yesterday. Despite only receiving 1/3 of the speaking time, not having the opportunity to make a closing statement, and having the moderator admit to wishing that Lisa could be governor (yes, you read that correctly), I still brought forth three crucial, undisputed facts:
1. Illinois has become more corrupt and dysfunctional over the past 12 years.
2. Lisa Madigan has a reactive approach, instead of a proactive strategy, to fighting corruption.
3. Lisa Madigan was in a position to stop the NRI shenanigans … and did nothing.
Those facts may not seem important to the media or our political elites, but to the rest of us they represent the sad reality of an Illinois Attorney General’s Office that is ignoring the number one threat our state faces–government corruption.
We can win this election because the people of Illinois know that we need more from the Attorney General’s Office and our government.
We need your help, though, to get that message out. Please donate today to help pay for the radio advertisements and friend-to-friend cards that will help us do that. Anything you can do will help. $50, $25, even $10 will help us reach our goal and get out our message.
Cheers and S/F,
