Much of the cheating is done with the absentee ballots I hear, but we could still require a fingerprint by mail, or do absentees at the post office. We have the technology to track this, but no willpower from the Democrat cheaters. ACORN is alive and well, they just changed their name and dispersed a little.

Now you're making stuff up. Nursing homes, retirement homes, such as the Lincoln -Douglas and Lampe High-rise, and the like are prime targets for "get out the vote" groups. They regularly (during the election cycle) visit, and make sure all eligible voters get registered (if they wish) and are transported to the polls if able to make a cognitive decision. Also, many groups have slush funds…

How about "City department heads review their proposed budgets with aldermen who never have to justify their own budgets."

Schoenekase, convicted felon, could be the next Adams County Clerk

3 months, 4 weeks ago by Denise Donley

Schoenekase will remain on the Democratic primary ballot for Adams County Clerk/Recorder as of now

Jonathon Schoenekase will remain on the Democratic primary ballot for Adams County Clerk/Recorder, for now.

Schoenekase, a Democrat who has been convicted of three felonies, filed to run for the position of County Clerk.

Current Adams County Clerk Georgia Volm announced earlier this month that she would not be seeking another term.

Objections to candidates who filed had to be submitted by December 9th.

An objection to Schoenekase was filed on December 11th, two days after the deadline. The objection contained information that said since Schoenekase is a convicted felon, that he can’t hold the office.

Had the objection been filed on time, the electoral board, made up of the Adams County Clerk, the States Attorney and the Circuit Clerk would have had jurisdiction to make the call.

Volm said someone else will have to take action now.

“I’m not saying he cannot be taken off the ballot, I’m just saying that due to the fact the objection was filed too late, it’s out of the jurisdiction of the electoral board,” said Volm. “Some other action would have to be taken by individuals. I’m not sure what the exact steps would be but they could take it to court, which is always an option.”

When asked if Schoenekase would be on the November election ballot, Volm said…

“As it is right now. There’s a lot of things that can happen, I’m not going to say that there isn’t, but as it stands right today.”

Previously, Schoenekase attempted to run for a seat on the Quincy City Council but was removed due to his felonies. Illinois law says a person cannot run for municipal (city) office in the state of Illinois with a felony conviction.

GOP candidates on the March ballot for County Clerk/Recorder include Scott Stone, Becky Weed and Chuck Venvertloth.
