WOW-- so you give some links to stories of a few that acted incorrectly. Who arrested them, for them to plead guilty? POLICE Anyone can sue, rightly or wrongly, and big cities settle suits all the time, even those without a shred of merit. Police are human, and other police catch them and arrest them, or fire them. NYC has between 30.000 and 40,000 police, Chicago has between 8,000 and 13,500, LA…

one case comes to mind, the woman was certifiable, manic, and frequently hitting. Once he said "what's good for the goose is good for the gander" ... hit back but didn't hurt. That was all she wrote ... as if she was ready and had a game plan. Ran out all histrionic, called cops, badda bing badda boom ... got her divorce, money, easy peasy for the lawyers. The fact she was manic, domineering,…

If you mean you have no proof they pulled you over you're wrong. All stops are recorded video/audio as long as the lights are on. And if you ever get pulled over for no reason feel free to complain to the chief. If there's an officer doing that and multiple reports show up it will catch up to them.

Well, you'd better get used to that one: The woman slapping the hell outta the man and him going to jail for deflecting the blows. Not to say this is always, or even often the case, but it's worth considering.

After years of seeing Quincy Democrats reap Chicago campaign cash, Republicans are getting in the game

Quincy and Adams County Republicans have decried Chicago money coming into local campaigns for years, but it now seems the philosophy has become ‘if you can’t beat them, join them’.

Citizens for a Better Quincy, a Political Action Committee formed by a majority of the City of Quincy’s Republican Aldermen, has received $60,000 over the last 10 days from Chicagoland interests. The PAC has served as a pass-through for those funds to be used for the production and placement of television ads opposing State Sen. John Sullivan (D-Rushville).

The PAC only had $1616 in its account following the filing of the third quarter disclosure statement on October 12.

But then on October 16, the PAC reported receiving $20,000 from Otto of Carpentersville, Illinois and $10,000 from Patricia Foglia of North Barrington, Illinois. Otto is the company of Jack Roeser, who has been a politically active conservative for decades. On that same day, the PAC paid $10,000 to Campaign Grid, LLC and $20,000 to Multi Media Services, Inc. for production and placement of television ads opposing Sullivan (Click the video above this report).

Then on October 24, the PAC reported receiving $20,000 from Bruce Rauner of Chicago and $10,000 from Richard Uihlein of Lake Forest, IL. Then yesterday, the PAC paid Craft/Media Digital $30,000 for production and placement of ads opposing Sullivan.

All four donors have track records of contributing to conservative candidates throughout the state.

Citizens for a Better Quincy has given $1,000 to the state senate campaign for Randy Frese.  Rauner also gave the Frese campaign $5,000 today.  

Citizens for a Better Quincy was formed in April 2010 with a stated purpose to “support conservative aldermanic and mayoral candidates in Quincy, IL”. The PAC was amended in January 2011and the purpose changed to “elect conservative candidates”.  

Alderman Paul Havermale (R-3rd Ward) is the chairman of the PAC and Alderman Dan Brink (R-6th Ward) is the treasurer. Other members include Alderman Lexze Mann (R-1st Ward), Republican 4th Ward Aldermen Tony Sassen and Mike Farha, Alderman Kyle Moore (R-3rd Ward), Alderman Mike Rein (R-5th Ward), Alderman Jim Musolino (R-6th Ward) and Alderman Terri Heinecke (R-7th Ward).

“Everyone has the right to give and I applaud these people who have stepped up to support what they believe,” Farha said. “On the other side, we’ve seen what the teachers’ union has done in a big way.”

Moore, who has announced his candidacy for mayor, said the PAC was formed as a “way to show we are serious about a long-term conservative vision for Quincy.”

“I think it’s our way to use our contacts to make sure our voice is heard in this election,” Moore said. “We aldermen are fighting Springfield as they try to take more and more money from Quincy. The only way to stop that is a change in leadership and that starts with the Sullivan-Frese race.”
