APRIL 7, 2009
Illinois Fifth Congressional District
ROSANNA PULIDO, FR's own CHICAGOLADY, is the Republican nominee!
Rosanna Pulido for Congress
What you can do now
For more information or to volunteer:
This is a tough Special Election in a heavily Democrat district, but it isn't impossible. Rosanna is a GREAT candidate, and will work hard to earn every vote. Once folks get to know her, they love her!
She cannot count on the IL GOP, fellow FReepers, which means that she has to count on us.
I would ask that over the next five weeks those who take the defeatist approach don't waste our time on these threads. Every negative post is nothing but a free service provided to the corrupt Chicago Democrat Machine and their Republican Combine cohort.
If you have something positive to add, please do. If not, go play on a "caption Al Gore" thread or something. Please.
With our help, Rosanna Pulido can strike a powerful blow at the very heart of the Obama Democrat corruption. This is the congressional seat of Rostenkowski, Blago and Rahm Emmanuel.
They may well beat us. But if they do, let's make sure that on the night of April 7th they know they've been through a fight.
One last thing: This fight, if we are willing to fight, can be a catalyst in reenergizing and reigniting the conservative movement going into 2010. Others will take courage from our efforts. That means that it's worth it.
Keep it on the front page bump!
Total precincts reporting remain unchanged from last night.
Absentee ballots received by mail must be postmarked before Election Day to count.

Donation made! Good luck and fight hard. We are proud of ya.
If you can help ChicagoLady, please do so now!
I’m not in Chicago, but I’ll certainly pass the word on to friends who live there!
Done. It wasn’t much, bit if we all chip in a little, she’ll be helped considerably.
There is no rule that says you must be from the 5th District to contribute. If you do send money, include a note that you are a FReeper.
Big numbers of donations directly to CL from rock-solid conservatives would give her camp some leverage on the RNC.
I’ll be sending in a small amount today.
Thanks for reminding people that anyone can help Rosanna. I live in Northfield, but I drove to her district, five days, to walk precincts, for her.
I think she has a chance.
Immediately after winning his party's nomination, Quigley launched into a dogmatic chant of meaningless drivel designed to keep Democrat voters in a state of hypnosis. Currently a commissioner on the scandal-ridden, high-taxing Cook County Board, Quigley made this bizarre statement:
After all the recent embarrassments, this was first chance that the voters had to voice their desire for change and they spoke loud and clear, Quigley told the Chicago Tribune.They came through for me, and now I have to come through for them.
Now that's a pant-load. Is that the same Mike Quigley that Democrat Sara Feigenholtz trashed in her failed bid to win today's primary? Why, yes, it is! It's the same Mike Quigley who has consistently been a part of the problem that he falsely claims to have battled. It's the same Mike Quigley who has fought real change in the corrupt Cook County government and worked to preserve the status quo of the Stroger Empire. Change? Right, sure.
According to SEIU-backed Feigenholtz, Quigley is a water boy for Cook County President Todd Stroger. In a televised Feigenholtz campaign ad, a male announcer says this about Mike Quigley:
Mike Quigley? He talks a good game, but he endorsed Todd Stroger. Even sending his county staff to help Strogers campaign. And Quigley voted for Strogers budget, cutting nurses and hospital workers to keep Stroger friends on the payroll." (See the Feigenholtz video and more about Quigley and Stroger here.) [Quicktime needed to view video.]
The next month will be fascinating. We will see a Green Party candidate pretend that he matters. We will see a Stroger-Machine Democrat pretend that he's all about change. We will see a woman of substance who is not afraid to tell the truth and speak her honest convictions drop all pretenses and come out swin(g)ing. By the time April 7 rolls around, the Democrat will be known as Squiggley Quigley.

Quigley talks a good game about being a “reformer”, but when push comes to shove, he falls in line with the Chicago machine like a good boy. Check out his primary opponent’s campaign ad pointing out how Quigley vowed to oppose ultra corrupt Cook County Board President Todd Stoger , then flip-flopped when Stroger won the primary and even sent his staffers out to help Stroger win the general election! And he supported Stoger’s take hike budget and stands by Stoger’s efforts to make Cook County a sancuary for illegal aliens:
Any chance we could “borrow” the ad, and add a announcement at the end saying: “Representative Sara Feigenholtz is right. We cannot afford any more phony reformers like Mike Quigley, who stood by Todd Stroger and Rod Blagojevich. Want Real Reform? Vote Rosanna Pulido for Congress April 7th”
I don’t know about “borrowing” it, but we can most certainly quote it liberally.
McCain took an anti-Obama ad that Hillary ran in the primary (with a disclaimer at the bottom of the screen noting it was a Hillary ad), then deleted the “vote Hillary” stuff and added his own campaign pitch at the end. I think it’s legal.
Also, we need to confront Quigley right away and challenge him to debate Chicagolady.
There is a City Club debate already scheduled for March 24.
"TRUST US - CHICAGO MACHINE POLITICIANS ARE REFORMERS! ' :
"We will meet our challenges head on and we will do it by rejecting the politics of mediocrity and corruption. You voted for CHANGE; I intend to deliver it. ... I will govern as a reformer."
--Democrat machine politician Rod Blagojevich, Jan. 13, 2003, inaugural address
"This was first chance that the voters had to voice their desire for CHANGE and they spoke loud and clear. They came through for me, and now I have to come through for them.
--Democrat machine politician Mike Quigley, March 4, 2009, to the Chicago Tribune
He'll take vote from any socialists in the audience who don't want any more Chicago machine corrupt.

The History of the 5th Congressional District: A seat once held by Dan Rostenkowski, Democrat (convicted political racketeer), Rod Blagojevich, Democrat (arrested to stop an active criminal enterprise, accused of “selling” a US Senate seat), Rahm Emmanuel, Democrat (accused of tax evasion, status pending.
Mike Quigley, Democrat. Business as usual?
Let’s make this a referendum on conservative values. Let’s make this a referendum on RNC support.
To paraphrase a Tea Party hero: MR. STEELE! ARE YOU LISTENING?
C’mon Freepers, give! Let’s show the RNC that it is to their advantage to support a solid conservative!!
While this seat is an uphill battle its not quite as heavily D as the seat of Joe Cao, who beat William Jefferson D-LA.
IOW, anything is possible in a special election.
Dear Billy Boy, Thanks for the info, I need a Mike Quigley RESEARCH JUNKIE!! Will you sign up for this “MISSION IMPOSSIBLE”

Wow! About time a conservative was in that office. This is important to every state, not just Illinois!
I never knew much about Quigley aside from the fact he dropped out of the Dem primary in the Claypool-Stroger race, but I will do what I can to help your campaign! Ill serve as your opposition research if you want, and rebutt to pro-Quigley articles Also Ill write letters to the editor debating the medias Quigley is a reformer mantra.
Ive signed up on Politico.com and will write a response to that article.
Also, check out what I wrote about Quigley on Illinois Review:
Just freepmail me with links whenever you need me to write a response to something!
Eternal, I was going to say that the Pulido campaign is not fragile enough to be effected by defeatist or negative comments.
Fact is, everone is a pundit who classify every race as “can’t win” or “can’t lose”. Some of these commentators have absolutely no imagination. I would say with the low turnout that ... Rosanna got 38% in the bag ... the other 12% will be tough.
I am ringing doorbells (many of them) in the Tedisco race, NY #20. The GOP voters are semi-comatose. I have yet to develop any techniques to combat this. Defeatism ain’t the problem. The fact that 99.7% of our voters are zomBIES ... that is the problem.
By zomBIES, I mean they will not do a damn thing for any candidate. It is as if somebody called a boycott.
Time for new leaders who can inspire confidence.
You are the first winner I have voted for in a while. Congratulations.
