Watching State Rep. Allen Skillicorn’s disengagement from the Illinois political stage over the last couple of months puzzled me.
His tweets are most likely to be about national politics than that of Illinois.
He did not show up at the Algonquin-Grafton Township fundraiser on Monday.
The two townships contain a majority of Republican primary voters.
Now comes a report that Skillicorn is leaving Illinois after his term expires in January, that he tried to withdraw his name from the ballot last Friday.
As recently as July 12th Skillicorn put $10,000 of his own money into his Taxpayers for Skillicorn PAC.
He was ranked the most conservative State Representative by the American Conservative Union Foundation.
At the end of June, the fund had $81,357.23.
He reports debts, mainly to himself of $104,332.10.
Skillicorn defeated McHenry County Board member Carolyn Schofield in the GOP Primary.
McHenry County Board member Suzanne Ness is the Democrat on the ballot, having received more votes than both Skillicorn and Schofield combined.
