  1. Let us hope his campaign does not engage in this practice:

    “The Kankakee County State’s Attorney’s office says it is investigating possible voting fraud after the clerk’s office reported three complaints from people who said they were offered bribes for votes.

    In a news release issued late Tuesday afternoon, Jamie Boyd, the state’s attorney, also said “several” vote-by-mail applications seem to have come from people living outside of Kankakee County.”


  2. Democrat John Bartman v Republican Steve Reick for 63rd District State Representative.

    Election November 8, 2016.


    The International Union Operating Engineers 150-PAC (IUOE Local 150 PAC) is affiliated with the current employer of John Bartman.

    That is the Indiana, Illinois, Iowa Foundation for Fair Contracting (IIIFFC).

    John Bartman has not to date revealed this on his campaign website, and apparently not to the press, because the press has not reported this fact.


    John Bartman is listed as a Construction Analyst on the IIIFFC website, covering McHenry County and Lake County.


    IIIFFC recently changed the title from Compliance Monitor to Construction Analyst.

    A Compliance Monitor / Construction Analyst verifies state mandated prevailing wages are being paid by contractors and sub contractors on state funded construction projects, and other state funded projects.


    IIIFFC is a prevailing wage monitoring organization.

    IIIFFC receives a large portion of there revenues from an hourly line item in wage scales in union contractor (management) / union labor agreements.


  3. The International Union Operating Engineers 150-PAC is one of two PACs affiliated with IUOE Local 150.

    The other IUOE Local 150 affiliated PAC is the “Chicago Land Operators Joint Labor Management PAC.”

    The Chicago Land Operators Joint Labor Management PAC was covered in the following blog post:

  4. Also, somewhat related, since Mark things unions are so bad, where are Mark’s posts about Kenneally’s union money?

  5. The issue here, is the DESPICABLE AMOUNTS
    Of money from unions too numerous to count.

    Jacko Franko, EXPLOITS this contribution
    System to the MAX .

    Being a progressive, raising this kind of money
    That could be used for so many other SOCIALLY
    RESPONSIBLE things, in contrast seems OBSCENE

  6. The current laws favor unions at the expense of taxpayers.

    Don’t want reform, keep paying higher taxes.
