AYHSMB - Voter rights, crime victim rights amendments set for fall ballot so far - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJo
"If you and I both go to the polling place to vote, and I'm freely allowed to vote but you have to pay $20 before you're allowed to exercise that right.... that's not fair." Your words. So, how did YOU get a free ID? You can't vote if you're not a citizen. How did you prove you were citizen? Thomas Paine said…

The problem isn't just dead people voting. It's also living people voting multiple times. On of the Carolina's recently identified 35,000 voters with the same names and date of birth voted more than once in 2012. Most likely these are college students but 35,000 is a major case of potential fraud

Sorry I forgot about John. But Don was before him. Don't know if there was anyone before. I think the Deputy Mayor filled it then.

Rauner, running mate differ on social issues

6 months, 1 week ago by Bob Gough

Evelyn Sanguinetti said she disagreed with the gubernatorial candidate on the issue of life and of gay marriage

GOP gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner introduced his running mate, Wheaton City Councilwoman Evelyn Sanguinetti, to patrons at the newly rebuilt Sprout's Inn during a heavy lunchtime crowd on Wednesday.

Rauner announced Sanguinetti's selection Tuesday morning and then took her on a statewide fly-around lasting Wednesday and Thursday.

The two spoke to the local media after shaking hands with the lunch crowd.

After their campaign platform discussion regarding Illinois' sad financial condition, the duo was asked about social issues.

Rauner said he wanted to put gay marriage on a referendum before the voters and said he supported a woman's "ability to choose...I believe in some common sense regulations and restrictions so it's rare and safe, but I support a woman's ability to decide."

Sanguinetti, however, differed with the top of the ticket.

"On the issue of life...I must say, my mother chose me and she had me at age15," she said. "For this reason, I am pro-life. I also believe in marriage with the traditional defintion."

Sanguinetti added that while she and Rauner "are apart on social issues", they both recognize that Illinois is broken in many other ways.

Regarding ADM's request for $20 million in tax breaks to keep its corporate headquarters and the 150 employees that go with it in Illinois, more than likely moving from Decatur to Chicago, Rauner said the climate must be changed and improve and the state should "move away" from special deals for business.
