That which came in big chunks since the beginning of the year follows:
- $7,500 from the Chicago Land Operators Joint Labor-Management PAC (Illinois Review: “The Chicagoland Operators Joint Labor-Management PAC is listed with the ISBE as at 6170 Joliet Road in Countryside, Illinois, although the campaigns above listed the address at 6200 Joliet Road, the same location as the IUOE Local 150. ISBE records show IUOE Local 150 President James Sweeney as the Chicagoland Operators Join Labor-Management PAC”s chairman.”)
- $1,500 from Ameren, the Downstate counterpart of Com Ed that gives money to upstate legislators. (I’m convinced that it is an arrangement that the two utilities have made so that constituents don’t realize that it delivers the same message to legislators that a direct donation from Com Ed would give.)
- $1,000 – Associated Beer Distributors of Illinois
She started the year with $7,532.60.
