I haven't looked at the reports. What jumps out at you?


  • What sticks out on Welch's contributions is the amount Serpico gave,$5,000, also david ireland gave $2,700 and what about Roya Medical center giving $2,000 to both Welch and Moore?

  • What about the people Welch hired at the high schooland who donated to his campaign.....McGee-McDaniels, Wallace, Thomas, Andrew Jonhson, and the list goes on.

    If anyone donates to any of Welch's campaigns he will give you a promotion, create a job for you, or hire your unqualified spouse. Does it sounds like what is happening under the Daley machine? Job rigging at Proviso. Maybe, there will soon be an investigation.

  • Hey Carl, don't the other elcted officials,the mayors in Proviso, as well as the trustees of the towns and townships, don't they have to report there D-2 ?
    I know Sloan had a fundraiser in a phone booth, but should'nt he report his earnings?

  • Bruno is still in the mix but what does he have in common with Kim Lightford?

    Bruno is all over Bellwood government. He is in every meeting (board) and anything with development, he's there. When he smells money, he sniffs right out.
    It's almost like he is an appendage to Frank Pasquale- he's the tail! But wagging the dog.

    Poor Frank-he's either being led around by Roy McCampbell or Bruno.

    Did Frank win the case against Ireland? I heard he did, then I heard he didn't? Anyone know?

  • Is it true that Serpico,Moore,Calderone and Welch are hosting a fundraiser for Toddler?
    Is it true that toddler has promised these men,if elected,whatever support they'll need in the future to overthrow Yarbrough and her radical facation of Latino and Black progressives?

  • Why did Meeks give Lightford $10,000 and Emile Jones give her $5,000 for her campaign?
    Makes a guy wonder what a gal's gotta do to make that kind of scratch!!!
    Maybe Moore and Welch were right after all?

  • Who the hell is Toddler?

  • mayor wanna be:

    Toddler is a nickname that the extremely biased media has given Ald. Todd Stroger.

    deep throat:

    It is highly unlikely that Ald. Stroger would overtly or covertly work against Rep. Yarbrough. They were colleagues in Springfield and it just wouldn't make any politial sense for him to do so. It's not surprising that Moore and the others would host a fundraiser for him. He is the Democratic nominee for Cook County Board President. Who else would they raise money for? For that matter, before it's over I'd bet that Rep. Yarbrough might host an event for Ald. Stroger as well. Hey, it wouldn't be out of the realm of possiblility that she may even attend the Moore/Welch/Serpico/Calderone event that you say is going to happen.

  • An "Anonymous" poster wrote the following. If you want to refer to the post use the title "Thinks Rock is an Icon".

    Oak Park political icon (and former President of the Illinois Senate) Phil Rock, through his law firm, Rock Fusco, gave Chris Welch $500 in his race against Karen Yarbrough right before the primary (3/22/06). Also, Austin-based Cook County Commissioner Earlean Collins gave Welch money while ignoring Yarbrough. I would expect this kind of partisan support from Collins but not from Rock. I am deeply surprised (and a little disappointed)by Rock's law firm's donation to Welch.

    Please do not post as "anonymous". Use a pseudonym. The discussion is much easier to follow if each post is associated with a unique name.
