well my friends in wisconsin you think walker is bad? well welcome to illinois...

i was at the state afscme people meeting where we were discussing and voting on endorsements of the candidates this election cyclical. the front runner for the republicans is a guy named bruce rauner. his stated goal is to bust all public unions and his main target is the afscme union. unlike walker this guy has enough money to bankroll his own campaign. so far he has raised 9.8 million dollars so far with 3.5 million coming from his bank account. he has started television and radio ads already. i won't bore you with the details but there`s a very long list of things that he has done in his private business and what he intends to to to this state.

i`ll put it this way...compared to walker,he`s meaner,smarter, and he has his own money to buy the election in illinois.

2. Three years ago Illinois was well represented at the Madison protests. What can we do to help you?

5. here's a pic of the union buster



I am guessing he probably wants to get rid of the law that prevents Illinois from declaring bankruptcy so he can do a Detroit-style bankruptcy.

You know the reasoning: 30 years of investing in pensions makes him an expert on how to handle them.

9. Detroit was a test-bed. You can bet the fascism that was foisted on that state . . .

Christine Svenson is an attorney making demands on behalf of the accuser and is directly linked to my opponent Bruce Rauner," Rutherford said. Svenson demanded payment of [$300,000] for the employee to 'walk away and keep it under wraps.'"

It has been reported in the Springfield State Journal Register newspaper that Rauner has been quoted as saying he has a "book on all the Republican candidates" and he's going to "destroy every one of them."

11. Why buy a politician,

just become one and cut out the middle man. It is bizarre how many uber-wealthy people have gone into politics. Its much more expedient this way and I suppose when you have that much money, you're always looking for something new to buy!
