Looking for Shaw Decremer & Andy Jones

Is there more money coming from Mike Madigan’s Political Action Committees to Dee Beaubien’s campaign. Image compliments of Andy Gasser’s Blog.

No money has been reported flowing from Mike Madigan sources to Dee Beaubien since October 24th.

Maybe with the almost $430,000 deposited so far, there’s no need for additional assistance.

But if the two staffers Madigan has had assigned to the race, Shaw Decremer and Andy Jones, are still working for Beaubien, today is the day that their salaries should be reported to the State Board of Elections.

They are on a bi-monthly payroll so the end of month check should be showing up today or tomorrow.

    Editorial: Michael Madigan vs. Somebody

    “But Madigan’s top campaign aide, Shaw Decremer, was there. Waiting.”



    On March 8, 2016 IPACE reported to the Illinois State Board of Education (SBE) an expenditure of $12,500 for Mailers opposing Steve Reick in the 63rd State House of Representative District.

    The expenditure was to the independent expenditure committee named Government for the People at 2857 W Leland Ave Unit 1, Chicago, IL 60625.

    At the time that address was linked to Shaw Decremer.


    IPACE = Illinois Political Action Committee for Education. This is the PAC for the IEA teacher union.

    IEA = Illinois Education Association. IEA is a statewide teacher union. IEA has local school district affiliates. IEA also has a national affiliated named the NEA (National Education Association).


    On March 9th, IPACE sent a letter to the Illinois State Board of Education that the 2857 W Leland address was incorrect, and the correct address is 2978 Kentshire Circle, Naperville, IL 60564.


    The D-1 Statement of Organization for Government for the People listed the committee as having been created on March 7, 2016.

    On line 8 of the D-1 Statement of organization, the last name is printed twice as Biesk.

    On line 9 of the D-1 Statement of organization, the last name is printed Bieck.

    The named is then signed twice as Biesk.

    The name was correctly spelled 4 out of 5 times on the one page piece of paper.


    IPACE and Government for the People acted quickly in this effort to oppose Steve Reick.

    Government for the People (independent expenditure only PAC) was formed on March 7, 2016.

    On March 8th, 2016, IPACE made a $12,500 contribution for mailers to oppose Steve Reick.

    The election was March 15, 2016.


    Republican Steve Reick’s opponent in the primary election was Democrat Jeffery Lichte.

    How does a Republican oppose a Democrat in the primary?

    The Democrat Jeffery Lichte filed to run as a Republican with the State Board of Elections on November 30, 2015.


    The 63rd State Representative District is entirely inside McHenry County.

    All of the nominating petition signature gatherers, other than Jeffery Lichte himself, were from outside McHenry County.


    Democrat Jeffery Lichte is a Jack Franks supporter.

    Jack Franks was unopposed as Democrat candidate for the 63rd District State Representative position in the March 15, 2016 primary election.

    On March 15, 2016, Republican Steve Reick prevailed over Democrat Jeffery Lichte in the Republican primary election.


    On May 15, 2016, Jack Franks announced he was a Democrat candidate for McHenry County Board Chair.

    On July 7, 2016, Jack Franks name first appears on the Illinois State Board of Elections (SBE) website as withdrawn as a candidate in the November 8, 2016 general election for the 63rd District State Representative position.

    On July 9, 2016, the McHenry County Democrat Party selected John Bartman to replace Jack Franks as candidate for 63rd District State Representative.

    November 8, 2016, Republican Steve Reick defeated Democrat John Bartman in the 63rd District General Election.
