Madigan Trashes McLaughlin, Father of Five Daughters, for Being Anti-Woman, McLaughlin Ties Dem Opponent Suelzer to Madigan

There is a direct mail war against Republican candidate Marty McLaughlin in Mike Madigan’s attempt to take the suburban district now held by Republican David McSweeney without TV attack ads.

I think it is a controlled experiment to see if television ads for non-incumbent House Democratic Party candidates are necessary.

The direct mail McLaughlin-Marci Scuelzer race results will be compared to those of Suzanne Ness’ coming rout of Allen Skillicorn and the Martha Paschke challenge to Republican Dan Ugaste in the mainly Kane County district.

A staggering number of television ads are being run on behalf of Ness and Paschke.

And Madigan has so much money that he can afford to waste those TV expenditures on Ness’ campaign.

But, back to the McLaughlin-Suelzer direct mail.

What follows below was delivered over a week ago. (Hard to keep up, there is so much. I have last week’s, but have not gotten to it.)

Let’s do mailings by Madigan’s State Democratic Party for Suelzer first.

All pretty much argue the father of two daughters hate women.

I do not know their delivery order.

Cute good side and back side depiction.
Note the name of
Illinois’ most extreme politician” is not given.

The three mailings on Suelzer’s behalf were countered by two from McLauglin’s side of the contest.

The first was sent by the campaign itself:

McLaughlin prints a question that the Chicago Sun-Times asked Suelzer.

“Should Illinois consider taxing the retirement incomes of its very wealthiest residents, as most states do? And you argument is?”

Suelzer replied,

“Absolutist thinking leads to unproductive polarization and contributes to the economic quagmire we are in. While I do not support a tax on retirement income, I believe that all stake holders have a right to be heard and the merits of each proposal carefully debated.”

McLaughlin’s mailing, on the other hand, states, “Marin McLaughlin opposes the progressive tax and will oppose any tax on retirement income!”

The back of the piece points to his endorsements from

  • Daily Herald
  • Northwest Herald
  • Chicago Tribune

The second mailing come from the Illinois Republican Party and is sharply negative in nature, tying the Democrat to Mike Madigan.

It talks of Suelzer’s

  • silence concerning Mike Madigan’s political organization’s involvement in a rape cover-up
  • taking “more that $220,000 in political contributions from Madigan’s group” (remember these figures are probably more than two weeks old)
  • unwillingness to “speak up for women”

  1. Put a sock in it Madigan!

    Madigan, is Illinois BIGGEST HYPOCRITE!


  2. Kevin Quinn is the anti-woman man.

    Kevin is the brother of Chicago Alderperson Marty Quinn (13), featuring Committeeperson Mike Madigan.

  3. These Madigan mailings are so desperate it’s laughable.

    Nearly all of them reference McLaughlin’s Facebook post from June 15, 2020 as proof of his “extremism”.

    Read the scandalous post for yourself.


    Because Illinois is broken and going in the wrong direction.

    We know, because we feel it every time we pay our property tax bills.

    Every time we buy a cup of coffee, groceries and gasoline.

    We feel it in the ever increasing ticky-tack taxes that Springfield and local taxing bodies initiate every year.

    They don’t get it.

    They are killing Illinois.

    Adding all of these taxes together, our tax burden is the highest in the country.

    We taxpayers keep doing our part, paying our share, while Springfield keeps spending well beyond their means.

    They just passed a budget (if you can even call it that) which is $ 6 billion out of balance.


    Who does that? What were they thinking?

    Did they address:


    No, they did not.

    Instead, they failed to pass a law to block their automatic annual pay raise, thus increasing their annual base compensation to over $71,000 for their part-time jobs, while giving businesses and tax payers a full-time gouging.

    Where is the outrage from the citizenry or the media?

    It’s time for action to clean up the mess in Illinois.

    I cleaned up my town, reduced taxes, reformed government and improved services.

    Help me be part of the solution in Springfield as your State Representative.

    With your support and help, we can begin to turn around Illinois. NOW.”

    Yep, very EXTREME.

    Extremely effective!
