CRIME, stealing newspapers

West Suburban Journal comes out on Thursdays. I had a column in today's paper about nominating petition challenges, both generally and specifically against Sen. Kimberly Lightford's petitions.

The short version of the column is that the nominating petition challenge system is biased in favor of incumbents and the party establishment. And Lightford's petitions have a number of irregularities that suggest further investigation may be warranted.

Nicole Trottie, the publisher of West Suburban Journal, told me that the papers were being stolen from distribution points. The paper is free. The issue also included a couple of reprints of articles from Forest Park Review about District 209. One was about terminating Dr. Gilchrist; the other about the possibility tapes of a closed session meeting were tampered with.

Who would want to keep these stories from reaching the public?
