It’s that time of year when candidates filed their fourth quarter of 2019 campaign finance reports.
The most interesting part of McHenry County Board member Suzanne Ness’ filing is the direct connection to House Speaker Mike Madigan.
Take a look:
Impossible to figure out what eight employees of the Friends of Mike Madigan did for Ness.
Certainly can’t have been much because the total paid these Madigan employees was only $200.15.
Given the date of the in-kind donation, perhaps they were checking the Ness petitions prior to filing.
The question that Ness will not answer in the affirmative is “Will you vote for Mike Madigan for Speaker?”
That’s a question that Jack Franks would not answer either, while voting for Madigan nine times.
In all, Ness raised $2,380 during the last three months of 2019.
$930 were under $150.01, so did not have to be reported.
