Because it would require them to pick up a phone and call the property appraisers' office so they could source the story. Doesn't fit their agenda which is to smear him every chance they get. Just like the non-story about his office redecoration which EVERY CONGRESSMAN AND SENATOR DOES!!!!

Property assessment in Illinois is done by sales and, for new construction, by fjilings by the contractor. As somebody already pointed out all residential property is assessed at 1/3 value. But what's facts when you can chose to be ignorant. Let's get the facts straight (as opposed to this terribly jump-to-conclusion article on huffington post -

I thought it was campaign law that you either had to reimburse donors for airplane rides or count it as a donation. Just compare this to what the Clintons are doing with foreign money and $7M in yearly travel from their "charitable" foundation. So what exactly is wrong with him paying for the airplane rides?

"Even though office expenses are often covered by the Member Representational Allowance, the Congressman believed it appropriate to pay these costs himself as part of the office review process." In layman terms " I got caught wasting taxpayers money, and I should probably rectify the situation before the pitchforks come out"

QPD investigates possible attempted child abduction

3 years ago by Bob Gough

Two suspects went to the police station after reading a description of their vehicle on Facebook; Police determine there was no criminal intent

At about 3:20 Wednesday afternoon, Quincy Police responded to the area of 24th and State in reference to a possible attempted child abduction investigation.

Officers spoke with a 9 year old boy who reported that two males in a white truck attempted to lure him into their vehicle.  Officers immediately checked the area in an attempt to locate the truck, but were unsuccessful. 

Then at about 9:30 p.m., after reportedly reading numerous Facebook comments regarding this incident which included a description of the vehicle, the driver and passenger of the vehicle voluntarily came to the Quincy Police Department to speak with officers about what had happened.

Both were interviewed by police, and it was determined that nothing criminal had occurred.

This investigation is complete and no arrests were made.
