A missive from State Senator Dan Duffy:
Please Sound The Alarm!
Chicago has become a punchline for late-night comedians due to corruption.
There is currently a situation ripe for corruption taking place in the Illinois Treasurer’s race. That race is not over!
On election night, Tom Cross (R) was winning by 30,000 votes but now he leads by less than 1,000 votes.
There is something wrong with this picture
We have discovered that there are hundreds, maybe thousands, of voters in Cook County who may have cast more than 1 ballot.
In just the last few days, in a review of a mere 8,000 Cook County ballots, workers have identified that hundreds of voters have cast multiple ballots.
I am concerned that if we took a bigger sample of ballots, say 100,000 – we would most likely find thousands of voters who cast multiple ballots.
That is a valid, logical concern knowing the history of Cook County.
Last Thursday the Chicago Board of Elections said that there were a total of 10,000 absentee ballots.
Today, they say the number is more like 16,000.
Somehow, during this critical period, another 6,000 ballots have appeared out of thin air!
I grew up in Chicago. I must admit this whole situation does not surprise me.
However, that does not mean I am going to just let this possible voter fraud happen.
Every voter should be concerned with the shenanigans going on in Chicago and Cook County.
It dilutes our votes in the suburbs and downstate if some people in the City of Chicago are voting twice.
Please take action, get involved and show your concern about the Illinois Treasurer’s race before it is too late.
Do not let the Chicago Machine steal the Illinois Treasurer’s election.
Contact your local newspaper, news media, bloggers and social media sites.
The best way to end fraud and corruption is to expose it while it is happening!
Expose Chairman Mike Madigan’s actions in the Illinois Treasurer’s race while there is still time!
