The End Justifies the Means What does the Illinois Republican Party stand for?
The Illinois Republican Party, a party that claims to support less litigation*, retained attorneys and a private investigator to limit your choice in the November 2nd election. To block ballot access, they have attacked the candidates, the petition circulators and challenged the intention of Illinois voters.
After candidates and volunteers for the Constitution Party spent 4 grueling days analyzing thousands of individual petition signer entries at the Illinois Board of Elections in Springfield, the Board of Elections determined that at least 25,017 voters entries are VALID (exceeding the minimum requirement for ballot access).
Now, after another failed attempt to eliminate a free and equal election, they are attacking the Board of Elections staff. Republican attorneys have submitted an affidavit accusing a staff member of having a cavalier attitude. Just to put this into perspective, the staff had to spend the better part of 4 days reviewing petition signer information against the Board of Elections data base. Moreover, the Board of Election staff worked with one representative for the candidate and one for the Republican Party looking over their shoulder. A letter of gratitude would be more appropriate when one considers the staffs patience and commitment for accepting this additional volunteer duty.
