N06, Rowe makes allegations against Harmon [39th Sen]

Jim Rowe of Franklin Park has filed to run for State Senate as a Republican against Senator Don Harmon.

Wednesday Journal reports Rowe is claiming two incidents of vandalism and intimidation by Harmon supporters.

In one incident Rowe's tires were slashed and Harmon lit was left on his car. In another incident a bottle with a note was tossed through his home window. The bottle contained a note telling Rowe to get out of the race.

How reliable is Rowe? The Wednesday Journal is clearly poking fun at Rowe's allegations.

In the past Rowe has claimed Harmon endorsed Topinka and he's called Harmon part of an "Axis of Evil". Should I bother with locating Rowe's fellow school board members and asking them if he's a reliable source of information?


  • To borrow from Senator Lloyd Bentsen, I've known dirty, nasty politicians, and Don Harmon is no dirty, nasty politician.

    Seriously, I've had many conversations with Harmon and know people in his Oak Park base pretty well. Harmon would have to have some serious Jeckyl and Hyde thing going on to do the things Rowe alleges.

  • Maybe I'll ask Rowe for an interview. It might be amusing.

  • Harmon would not do anything like that, but if you look at his endorsements list, there are definitely some names on there would be more than capable of a stunt like this.
