Indicted Rep Re-Elected

  • State Rep. Derrick Smith scored a big win Tuesday against his Republican-turned-Democratic challenger in a quirky primary contest a week after his arrest on a federal bribery charge.

    [...] Smith (D–Chicago), who was appointed to the House in 2011, was busted by the feds after allegedly accepting $7,000 to write a recommendation letter for a daycare center he thought was seeking a state grant.

    [...] “I was annihilated,” [opponent Tom] Swiss said. ““The ideologues came out, and those are the people that just would rather vote for a crook than someone who had worked for Republicans.”

And Madigan won big - we expect that will start paying dividends almost immediately for the FOP, right?

How about the endorsement from Congressman Danny "Driving while Black" Davis. He told all the "informed" voters to vote for this thief. What a corrupt low life fuck this guy is. Derrick is going to jail and the Dems will get to select his replacment. Keeping the seat in the family. Only in Chicago.

Noticed all the political experts on tv wonder why we had the lowest turnout of voters ever in this state. Answer...NOBODY GIVES A FUCK ANY MORE. What good does it do to vote when every jagoff you put into office turns against you and takes care of themselves. All of the self serving corrupt bastards that have put this state into the hole for $Billions have been nominated to do it some more. The Madigans, Cullertons, and the rest of their ilk will get another 2-4 years to fuck us out of whatever change we have left in our pockets. We live in the most corrupt state, county, and city in the country. Fuck voting. What we need is a REVOLUTION.

Another moron heard from who believes it's better to shit in the face of people who can either ensure you don't get fucked or spend their time ensuring a way is found to fuck you.

Some fools would rather cut their own throat thinking they're fucking someone ELSE over, rather than shut the fuck up and worry less about someone forcing them to eat their own shit.

Grow up....learn what politics mean in Chicago, then go enjoy your pension and keep your family fed asswipe.

While Smith's election is grabbing the headlines, it's the potential domination of the Illinois General Assembly by the Democrats for the coming decade that may be the real story here. From the Chicago Tribune website last night:

"Even before unofficial results rolled in, some sitting Republican lawmakers were bound to lose in DuPage County, casualties of the Democratic-drawn state legislative districts. The map is tilted so heavily toward Democrats that the party led by House Speaker Michael Madigan, the Illinois Democratic chairman, is all but ensured November general election victories that could set it on a course to control the General Assembly for the next decade."

It's time to just give up and move. This is not a state you want to raise a family in. There are no decent people left in this city. Anyone who stays with these degenerates is apt to become one themselves.

Once they start to OPENLY elect criminals, it's just too far gone.

Shields ran on a platform of protecting the pension. One way of doing that is to NOT pick a fight with Madigan. Chicago Police have their very own pension laws. Very easy for Springfield to fuck directly with us if so inclined. You really need to think about these posts and comments. They are not doing us any favors.

Well that would be just PLAIN WRONG for you to foist your opinions on the criminal class.

Felons are people too, ya know!


Besides, the politicians will never reform the election laws. If they ever had to run in a legitimate election with only legitimate voters voting, they'd all be unemployed!

Smith won because he is black and Swiss is white.


Smith was appointed to his seat to begin with. He was not elected.

You read it here first:
Now that Smith is guaranteed to win the election he will drop out of the race and Madigan will appoint his own toady candidate and that seat will once again be filled by a Madigan appointee rather than someone elected by The People. This is how things are done in the State Madiganistan.

I'm so disgusted by this election. I feel completely helpless and frustrated, just like Madigan wants us to feel.

I can't begin to express how much I loathe this City/County/State.

Nothing new, how about DC Mayor Marion Barry, caught red-handed on tape doing coke, convicted and sent to jail.
Got out, ran back for office and was subsequently re-elected.
Move along here, nothing to see, nothing new.

This shows why west side revruns are smarter than you. They know you won't vote, but they will rally their "flock" and get who they want in. With the lowest turnouts, if WE organized and voted there might be a chance for some positive change.

All of you idiots who think we did the right thing by endorsing Madigan should feel pretty good when he takes your pension.

You are all nutless wonders. You don't endorse the jagoffs who actively try fucking you. You deny them the endorsement and say why loudly and publicly. Then you find someone who will support you.

I bet you pricks will go door to door for Rahm because he has power. You are all fucking fools. The best you can hope for is scraps from his table and to be chained up outside. You enslave yourselves.

Used to be that if you had a felony or active criminal parole/probation you were not allowed to vote.

But hey...this is Chicago...

They sign you up to vote the same time they make your DL/ID at Munoz's Photo.

We are our own worst enemies.That Spanish merit sgt who ran for alderman knowing he couldn't win,makes a deal with the seiu police hater Mary conner to endorse her and further goes to the sgts association with the rest of his merit buddies and gets her endorsed.So instead of Maurita Gavin we get this pos oconner.Gavins brother is Pat McHugh from 024.We also get the other left wing pos Mulroe who sells us all out,votes for the 66% tax increase and all kinds of other lefist bills including the state dream act.Neither one of these assholes represent our interests,we would have been in better shape with Gavin and Doherty.
