Look what I found distributed by the Crystal Lake Tea Party:

Letter from Irene Napier in support of Pro-life candidates in Algonquin Township:
Irene Napier at the annual Pro-Life Pig Roast, usually held at her farm.
Dear Pro-Life Supporter,
I was going to sit this election out, but two Pro-Lifers running for Algonquin Township Trustee are being slandered.
One is Melissa Sanchez, a 22-year old recent college grad (who has a job already!). Melissa, from Lake in the Hills, took a bus to the Pro-Life Washington demonstration three years ago and ended up meeting the young man she is going to marry. She is running with Larry Emery of Crystal Lake.
The key issue is pay raises voted for by three incumbent Trustees—Dan Shea and Lowell Cutsforth, plus Linda Lance, running for Township Clerk.
Both Melissa and Larry are being accused of voting to raise their own salaries.
The absurdity of the falsehood being spread is obvious when you think about it.
How could two candidates who are not in office have voted to raise their own salaries?
Such a “Big Lie” approach has been used successfully in politics before.
Shame on us if we let it work next Tuesday, when the Republican primary election is held.
What kind of a world do we live in when supporters of politicians spread outright lies about a recent retiree and a young woman inspired to try to improve things by entering public service?
Shouldn’t we be encouraging people like her and her friend Larry Emery, another Pro-Lifer, to stay involved in a political process that most of us would rather ignore because it is so often so dirty?
To summarize, there are three people on the ballot who voted to raise township salaries:
- Dan Shea running for Trustee
- Lowell Cutsforth running for Trustee
- Linda Lance running for Clerk
There is one candidate, a current Trustee, running for re-election who led the fight to cut salaries
- a Pro-Lifer named Russ Cardelli.
And there are the two candidates opposed to higher salaries who are being lied about
- Melissa Sanchez
- Larry Emery
Finally, a well-known Pro-Lifer named
is running for Township Clerk against a woman who voted to raise salaries.
Vote as you please, but please vote.
