ROCKFORD REGISTER STAR
— The Iroquois County GOP in central Illinois has joined nearby LaSalle County’s Republican Central Committee in voting to censure U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger over his vote to impeach former President Donald Trump. – Corina Curry
https://www.rrstar.com/story/news/politics/elections/2021/02/15/second-illinois-county-votes-against-kinzinger-over-impeachment-vote/6758346002/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: While dozens of counties across Illinois voted to support LaSalle County Republicans in their censure of the Republican congressman on Feb. 3, none took a vote of their own until late last week when Iroquois County Republicans met and approved its own censure. A censure is a public, formal statement expressing disapproval of a public official. Censure often serves as a powerful message from voting bases to elected officials and is often a sign of conflict. Like LaSalle County, Iroquois is one of 14 counties in Kinzinger’s 16th Congressional District, which also includes Boone County and much of Winnebago County.)

https://www.chicagotribune.com/politics/ct-adam-kinzinger-trump-illinois-republicans-20210129-sybzihfppbazrcviq2v2cvupka-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger’s vote to impeach Donald Trump and criticism of Republican congressional colleagues who support the former president has highlighted a split in the state GOP as it gets set to decide on new leadership. The Republican State Central Committee will meet Feb. 6 to decide among three candidates to replace outgoing Chairman Tim Schneider. But some in the party want to use the forum to discuss Kinzinger and a possible reprimand for his anti-Trump statements, which increased in vitriol following the Nov. 3 election and the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol by Trump supporters. “There’s a group that wants to talk about it and it’s not positive. There are those who want to censure him. There’s people wanting to know what the state party is going to do about it,” said former Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar, who represents the 11th Congressional District near Kinzinger’s 16th District on the state GOP central committee. The schism in the state GOP mirrors what’s happening with Republicans nationally as the party struggles to move forward even as many of its voters continue to back Trump and believe the November election was stolen from him. On Sunday, Kinzinger doubled down on his position, announcing the formation of a “country first” movement and website attached to his Future First Leadership political action committee. He’s seeking like-minded supporters to “take back our party” and to “unplug the outrage machine, reject the politics of personality and cast aside the conspiracy theories and the rage.” “I think the Republican Party has lost its moral authority in a lot of areas. That doesn’t mean we don’t need to fight back to defend what we believe are our conservative principles. But when I ask people now, what is a conservative principle, how many people think that conservative principles are things like just build the wall and charge the Capitol and have an insurrection?” Kinzinger said on NBC’s “Meet The Press.” . . . But they also did not go unnoticed by state GOP leaders. Some have said they have received phone calls asking what the Illinois Republican Party was going to do about Kinzinger. The congressman was the subject of some discussion at a GOP State Central Committee meeting last weekend. “I think the party majority are kind of disappointed. I mean, the one thing I’ve heard most from Republicans over the years since Reagan is the old 11th Commandment,” Claar said of the former president’s admonishment to not speak ill of fellow Republicans. Claar accused Kinzinger of causing upheaval in the party to no clear end. “What is the point? Why are you elevating this thing into regional, if not national, prominence? What purpose are you serving here? You’re further pointing out the division in the party,” Claar said. Kinzinger has denied that he is attempting to position himself for a run for U.S. Senate or governor in 2022, though he has not ruled out a run for higher office. In a statewide race, his Trump criticism would likely be held against him in Downstate Illinois, which has grown more strongly conservative and ardently supported the former president in the past two elections. His stance could, however, help him among more moderate independents and Republicans in Chicago’s suburbs. Kinzinger recently told CNN that he believes with Trump gone, Republican leaders face a reckoning of where the GOP should go next — either aligning themselves with the former president or moving beyond him. “I think in six months it’s not going to be necessarily the party of Donald Trump. But this is the whole point: I do think we are in a battle, that it may be a battle that really needs to happen, for our party to say what is it we stand for now when it comes to policy. But as much as anything, are we aspirational or are we a party that feeds on fear and division?” Kinzinger said. “If you’re a leader of the Republican Party right now, you need to be focused on one thing — not winning another election, that’s not what we should be focused on right now. What we should be focused on is restoring the integrity of this party,” he said. Claar supported Trump and even co-hosted a fundraiser for him at the Bolingbrook Golf Club. That’s where the state GOP leaders were supposed to meet Saturday until a predicted snowstorm pushed off the date to Feb. 6. But he said Illinois Republicans should take a wait-and-see attitude on the party’s future and whether it should continue to align itself with the former president. “Let’s just leave it alone and see how it plays out,” Claar said. He said if the party does decide to speak out on Kinzinger, he would oppose any effort to censure the congressman for his conduct, a course taken by GOP leaders in some states against congressional members who voted for impeachment. “It serves no purpose to have headlines that say, ‘Republican state party censures congressman.’ That would just give it more legs,” Claar said. “I think it would be better to just issue an observation of the reality that a congressman can say what he wants and it’s up to his constituency to decide whether they like it or not.” Kinzinger did not respond to a request to speak about the GOP state central committee’s potential actions. On Sunday, during his “Meet The Press” interview, Kinzinger said he viewed GOP efforts to reprimand Trump opponents as an example of the “cancel culture” that Republicans have outspokenly criticized Democrats for exhibiting. . .Much of the state GOP’s decision on how to respond to Kinzinger may come down to its pick of a new chairman to replace Schneider, a former Cook County commissioner and Hanover Township trustee from Streamwood.)

NARFE
— Tell Your Representative to Cosponsor New WEP/GPO Repeal Bill – Evan Dean
(DIERSEN: My Social Security is dramatically reduced because I get a Civil Service Retirement System pension. I paid Social Security taxes while I washed dishes, cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, pumped gasoline, delivered mail, worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard, sold tires, automotive services, and major appliances, etc. 1964-1974.)
https://new.narfe.org/tell-your-representative-to-cosponsor-new-wep-gpo-repeal-bill/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: On January 4, 2021, Rep. Rodney Davis, R-IL, reintroduced the latest iteration of legislation to repeal the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) and Government Pension Offset (GPO). These provisions cut the earned Social Security benefits of federal retirees and their surviving spouses. The Social Security Fairness Act of 2021, H.R. 82, would fully repeal both provisions, which, together, affect over 2.5 million people nationwide. Visit NARFE’s Legislative Action Center to urge your Representative to cosponsor this important legislation. House rules guarantee a floor vote on any legislation that garners 290 or more cosponsors; H.R. 82 currently has 20 cosponsors. Let’s build momentum to secure a vote on this critical bill in the 117th Congress. The WEP significantly reduces the Social Security benefits of government retirees who collect both a federal annuity from their government jobs and Social Security benefits from private employment. Meanwhile, the GPO prevents government retirees who receive a federal annuity from collecting full Social Security spousal benefits. In this situation, Social Security spousal or survivor benefits are reduced by two-thirds of the federal retiree’s government annuity. Often, this leaves widows and widowers with no spousal benefits at all.)
