Video Exposes Rauner’s Anti-Conservative Actions
State Rep. Jeanne Ives caused controversy last week after releasing a TV ad which some categorized as “racist”, “sexist” and “transphobic.”
But late Sunday Ives’ campaign announced that her campaign received a $2 million contribution from Lake Forest businessman Richard Uihlein.
The TV ad promotes the website www.benedictrauner.com “Chronicling Bruce Rauner’s Betrayal of the Illinois Republican Party.”
The bills Rauner signed into law cited in the video are:
HB 1785, Transgender Birth Certificates: 6 of 73 House and Senate Republicans voted for it (0 in the Senate).
SB 31, Sanctuary State: 6 of 73 House and Senate Republicans voted for it.
HB 40, Taxpayer-Funding of Abortion: 0 of 73 House and Senate Republicans voted for it.
SB 2814, Taxpayer Bailout of Exelon: 27 of 73 House and Senate Republicans voted for it.
According to polling data, HB 1785 and SB 31 are opposed by a supermajority of Illinois General Election voters.
All are opposed by a supermajority of GOP primary voters as they were a supermajority of GOP legislators.
