  1. I guess this means less future liberals?


    Supreme Court, in 5-4 ruling, strikes down restrictive Louisiana abortion law
    The measure would have required abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at hospitals within 30 miles of a clinic.

    WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court ruled Monday that Louisiana’s tough restriction on abortions violates the Constitution, a surprising victory for abortion rights advocates from an increasingly conservative court.

    The 5-4 decision, in which Chief Justice John Roberts joined with the court’s four more liberal justices, struck down a law passed by the Louisiana Legislature in 2014 that required any doctor offering abortion services to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles. Its enforcement had been blocked by a protracted legal battle.

  2. Both are dishonorable.

    The entire McH Co. Bd is a disgrace and Franks’ footstool.

  3. Any updates on what happened?

    Who attended?

    How many people?

    What was said?

    I don’t see anything from Lopez, Lauf, or Oberweis on Twitter about the event which is peculiar.

    One would think this would be a big deal because

    1. COVID has shut things down, and this is one of the first fundraisers since COVID started.
    2. Lauf was invited to speak; she had harsh words for Oberweis in the primary.
    3. Lauf’s support for Oberweis would be helpful since she finished first in McHenry County and third in the district.

    Yet I see no mentions anywhere.

    What happened?

  4. Still nothing, huh?

    John Lopez, I thought you were going to make some phone calls to figure out what happened regarding the Woodstock event that Lauf was invited to.

    Oberweis has not mentioned it.

    Lauf has not mentioned it.

    Neither Lauf or Oberweis even promoted the event beforehand on Facebook or Twitter, although Oberweis did promote the event with Marter.

    John Lopez, where did you get the flyer for this Oberweis/Lauf event in the first place?

    I don’t see anything on Marter’s timeline about his event with Oberweis, at least not anything during or after the event (just a heads up before the event).

    This is the only media I can find, a tweeted photo from the July 2 event in Yorville with five people including Marter and Oberweis.

    No mentions other than that?

    Was the Oberweis/Lauf event even real?

    Was it cancelled? Was it poorly attended?

    If it was real, what happened there? What happened at the July 2 event?

    Inquiring minds want to know.
