Thank you qfingers!!!. There are countless reasons against anybody compiling a DNA database for any reason. Way too much room for errors, manipulation, and outright abuse.

Interesting ideas, Cool Edge, thanks for sharing them. My only questions about the fingerprint idea would be how would that be paid for, and who would have oversight over the information? Also, should election workers really be expected to serve as CSIs? And finally, at this point I don't trust the post office to accurately deliver the mail anymore... Would we really want them involved in our…

Rauner chooses running mate; In Quincy TODAY

6 months, 1 week ago by 0

Rauener and Evelyn Sanguinetti will meet and greet at Sprout's Inn at 12:45 p.m.

Bruce Rauner announced Evelyn Sanguinetti as his Lieutenant Governor selection today and they began a two-day tour of the state that will take them to Chicago, Rockford, Quad Cities, Marion, Quincy and Peoria.

“Evelyn is the perfect partner to shake up Springfield,” Bruce Rauner said. “She’s achieved the American Dream and will fight so more in Illinois can reach it too. She grew up in poverty, relying on public assistance, and worked hard to become an Illinois Assistant Attorney General, a City Councilmember, and a teacher at the very law school that gave her the opportunity to work for this state.”

“She has the talent and guts to take on the lobbyists, special interests, and career politicians that are destroying this state and eliminating opportunities for the next generation,” Rauner said.

“I’m proof that with hard work, a good education and an opportunity anyone from anywhere can make it,” Evelyn Sanguinetti said. “Unfortunately, too many in Illinois who have backgrounds that look a whole lot like mine aren’t being given access to a quality education or that opportunity to succeed. I understand firsthand how the policies pushed by the career politicians are failing us and that’s why I’m excited to run with Bruce Rauner to transform Illinois.”

Sanguinetti currently lives in Wheaton and is a member of the City Council. She and her husband, Raymond, and their three children. She has been involved in Franklin Middle School, Lowell Elementary School and Jefferson Preschool PTA’s. Evelyn is also a member of the Wheaton Chamber of Commerce and the DuPage County Bar Association. Evelyn and her family are active in Cub Scouts, the Community School of the Arts, Wheaton Briarcliffe Youth Baseball, and sports within the Wheaton Park District.
