Former Campaign Manager’s Suit Reported Near Settlement

The top of the Chicago Tribune article.

The Chicago Tribune is reporting today that former Joe Walsh campaign manager Keith Liscio and Walsh’s campaign are near settlement on a suit filed by Liscio concerning his compensation in that post.

The article says that $20,000 was in contention.

The replacement of Liscio was reported in this McHenry County Blog story on December 31, 2009:

8th District Watch – Joe Walsh Shakes Up Campaign Staff

A second story published on January 22, 2010, just before the primary election, told of the suit by Liscio:

The press release about the suit from Liscio and Walsh’s response are at the bottom of the article under some memories of a similar suit after I ran for Congress in 1982.

It resulted in a directed verdict issued by Judge Michael J. Sullivan.

That’s the same kind of ruling that Judge Joseph McGraw issued in the two criminal cases brought by McHenry County Special Prosecutor Henry Tonigan against McHenry County State’s Attorney Lou Bianchi.

It was almost thirty years ago I lost to incumbent Bob McClory, who retired two years later when he was reapportioned into the same congressional district with John Porter.

That started a twelve-years of remission from elective office which ended when I was elected to the Illinois House of Representatives again in 1992.
