Mark Pera criticizes Lipinski for supporting Bush

Mark Pera is challenging Rep. Dan Lipinski (IL-03) in the Dem Primary. The district includes southern Proviso Township (south Forest Park, Brookfield, North Riverside, La Grange Park and southern Westchester).

Pera criticized Lipinski for voting with the Bush administration on legislation pertaining to the FISA court. The Bush administration has been violating the law pertaining to surveillance of U.S. citizens. It has never explained to what extent it is violating the law.

Bush critics who are especially suspicious of government power suspect the Bush administration has avoided explaining the details of how it has violated the law because it has engaged in surveillance of journalists and political critics and opponents.

EricV (Prairie State Blue) has the Pera press release.

Gerald Bennett, Mayor of Palos Hills, has also begun a campaign for the seat. See EricV (Prairie State Blue). Count me among those suspicious that Lipinski's allies have encouraged or enticed Bennett to run to split the opposition vote.
