    In early March, a gal named Rosanna Pulido won the Republican primary for the upcoming special congressional election in Illinois’ District 5, Rahm Emanuel’s former kingdom. She will lose. But not before making the funnies! She was the founder of the Illinois chapter of the Minutemen, because she *hates* the Mexicans. Once in a CNN interview she described John McCain as “just another politician that acts as if he was elected to represent the Mexican government.” Well maybe he was! AND YET, her most delightful comments came under the name “chicagolady” on the Free Republic website, where she wrote hilarious...

    ...Pulido said she isn't intimidated by Quigley's big money lead. Quigley had raised $512,932 in the election cycle that started after the November election while Pulido collected just less than $21,000, according to Federal Election Commission filings as of March 30. Reichel, a 27-year-old French teacher and translator, said he hadn't yet filed an FEC report because he hadn't raised $5,000. "I feel like it's a David and Goliath scenario but the end of the story is David wins," said Pulido, director of the Illinois Minuteman Project, part of a national volunteer civilian border patrol group that wants to stop...

When asked about the day's events, Rosanna Pulido raised questions about Quigley's priorities.

Police say 40-year-old Hector Pulido is charged with assault and risk of injury, and that he appeared yesterday in court after Tuesday's arrest. Day-care workers called police after discovering adult bite marks on the toddler's chest, stomach, shoulder, back, thigh, leg and buttocks. The boy told police that his uncle did it and, when questioned, Pulido allegedly told officers he wanted to teach the boy that it's wrong to bite other people....
