Wall Street was solidly in the Romney/Ryan camp last time, pjohnf. (And assuming he's the nominee, they'll certainly be in Ryan's camp in 2016.) Why is it that you seem to think that they're Obama supporters?

When did presidential libraries start taking this kind of funding? (I always thought they were privately funded... or at least I remember hearing that the Clinton and Bush #43 libraries were being done that way.)

Off-topic, but just to clarify, I will say that the disabled individuals that I've worked with aren't the least bit interested in free phones or anything like that. (Many of them will never live independently in their own communities; any such "bribes" would be meaningless to them.) Of course there are opportunists who do try to take advantage of every social program under the sun, and…

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe Reagan, Bush 1, Clinton, and Bush 2, had libraries built with private funds. I can't believe Soros or Buffett (or the Clinton's ;P) aren't contributing to the bill for Obama. Rahm is even stumping for it, as he says it will be a big tourism money maker. Hey, I'm all for it, if it is. On a side note, I think this is the first presidential…

I honestly couldn't care less about anybody's party affiliation. This ID issue actually has A LOT to do with poor people, the elderly, and people with disabilities -- regardless of their personal politics. (There are a lot of poor people in the south who are lifelong Republicans.) Arbitrarily-enacted voter ID laws ultimately won't disenfranchise you or me... but they do have a real…

Schrader, Frese spar over Website kerfluffle

3 months, 2 weeks ago by Bob Gough

Marshall Schrader, one of the candidates for the Illinois House 94th District seat says his opponent, Randy Frese misappropriated the use of his name.

Frese denies the accusation.

Schrader , who is from Monmouth, said it was “particularly disappointing to find that my opponent's campaign misappropriated the use of my name.  Per the attached video, the domain name "" was purchased and used to redirect internet traffic to Randy Frese's campaign website.  While it has recently been changed, an internet search of "" now yields only the Google homepage, demonstrating that while foul play was lessened, it is still employed. “

Misguiding voters as a campaign tactic seems less than honorable for a State Representative candidate who touts the words "integrity" and "professionalism" on his campaign website.  I believe, rather, that vigorous discussions of the issues faced by the voters of this district and each candidate's own merits should be the emphases of this race.” 

Schrader was asked for proof that it was the Frese campaign who purchased the domain name, which has a private registration and the registrant organization is called “Domains by Proxy, LLC”. None was provided.

Lonnie Dunn, campaign manager for Frese, said he knew nothing about “Domains by Proxy” and Frese, the former Adams County Circuit Clerk from Paloma, made the responding statement.

"This is the first I've seen of this. I didn't direct anybody to do it, nor do I condone it. I wish Mr. Schrader would have contacted me to find out if I was involved before he made a public accusation against me, but I guess that's politics. I agree that the issues important to this district should be the focus of this campaign and that's why I will continue to talk about the importance of a healthy business climate, properly funding education and good constituent service. I look forward to hearing where my opponent is on these issues sometime soon. The primary is about 10 weeks away and I have yet to hear where he stands on anything that matters."

Here’s hoping the two men have a couple of substantive debates. I’ll suggest the February or March meeting of the Quincy Tea Party as one prime location.
