A press release from McHenry County Republican Party Chairman Diane Evertsen:
Fraudulent group supporting Acosta harassing residents with robo calls
This time of year, the political robo calls are almost endless.
That’s bad enough but when a fraudulent group harasses voters with robotic calls, it’s even worse.
That’s what’s happening in McHenry County Board District 5 as a group supporting challenger Carlos Acosta is making calls while claiming a false affiliation.
The group, calling itself ‘Republicans for Acosta’, is not affiliated with McHenry County Republicans.
Diane Evertsen, Chairman of the McHenry County GOP, said that this attempt to sully the name of a legitimate and long-standing organization is unacceptable.
“This is an example of the ‘victory-at-any-cost’ philosophy of Michael Rein’s challenger,” said Evertsen.
“We don’t support any organization that engages in deceit, deception and, what we consider blatant voter fraud.”
Rein is the incumbent candidate in the 5th District and is running an honorable campaign without mudslinging or dirty tricks.
Evertsen pointed out that Rein’s opponent is abusing the truth and the time of residents in the district.
When asked to comment, Michael Rein said,
“This approach is unfortunate. I believe in running on the issues, such as tax cuts and governmental transparency.
“It would benefit the voters of the 5th District if my opponent would restrict himself to the same standards.”
