— Davis campaign volunteer poses as reporter to ambush Dirksen Londrigan press call – Mark Maxwell (DIERSEN: I should write a book about, or better yet, I should sue those who have hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I have used my role as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000 to serve as an operative for a candidate or for anyone else. I have always openly served as an operative for the Republican Party platform, for the Illinois Republican Party platform, and for the Milton Township Republican Central Committee resolution against video gambling.) 
https://www.wcia.com/news/davis-campaign-volunteer-poses-as-reporter-to-ambush-dirksen-londrigan-press-call/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Although the 2020 election is still 15 months away, the campaign for Congressman Rodney Davis is already dispatching volunteers to surreptitiously try and undermine a key messaging strategy of his rival Betsy Dirksen Londrigan — that she can’t be bought and paid for. On Wednesday, July 17th, Dirksen Londrigan held a joint press conference call with a campaign finance reform group called End Citizens United. The campaign sent invitations to local media and asked them to RSVP. WCIA has learned an unpaid volunteer working on behalf of the Davis campaign crashed the call, lied about his name to pose as reporter for a college newspaper, and ambushed Dirksen Londrigan with pointed arguments, including jabs at her husband’s career. On the call, Dirksen Londrigan said, “Congressman Davis’ votes clearly show he is voting for the corporate PACs and special interests who fund his campaign.” She vowed not to accept any direct campaign contributions from corporate PACs, a political strategy Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders deployed successfully in 2016 to align himself with the growing number of Americans dissatisfied with the Washington establishment and who wanted an outsider to showcase they are not beholden to big business. Davis has pushed back against Dirksen Londrigan’s characterizations, saying on Monday that his campaign contributions have “no more clout over me than it has clout over her for taking money from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, who takes funding from the same sources.” Davis’s defense sounded nearly identical to lines of questioning from a man who joined Dirksen Londrigan’s press call five days earlier. Toward the end of the conference call, a man introduced himself as Jim Sherman from The Alestle, the student newspaper at Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville. . .However, the caller who went after Dirksen Londrigan and her husband in the press call was not who he claimed he was. Miranda Lintzenich, the editor of the student newspaper, told WCIA, “Our student paper is not something through class. It’s an actual employment job. As far as I can remember, we have not had anyone by the name of Jim Sherman work here.” According to SIUE’s public records, there is no one attending class on campus with the name Jim Sherman. An employee at the admissions office told WCIA, “We do not have anyone by the name of Jim Sherman associated with SIUE.” According to a call log provided to WCIA, the phone number used to dial into the conference call matched the cell phone number for Nick Klitzing, the former Executive Director of the Illinois Republican Party who most recently worked as the deputy campaign manager for former Governor Bruce Rauner. Reached by phone, Klitzing confessed to committing the hoax and said, “I was willing to help. I’m just a volunteer.” Veteran political reporter and press relations man Mike Lawrence called the episode “unfortunate” and “off limits for any campaign.” Lawrence served as bureau chief for the now-defunct Lee Enterprises and later in the same capacity for the Chicago Sun-Times for more than 20 years before signing on as former Governor Jim Edgar’s press secretary in 1990. Later, Lawrence served as the director of SIU’s Paul Simon Public Policy Institute. “I don’t think it’s appropriate,” Lawrence said. “It’s an indication of the continued degradation of campaigning. In some respects, it’s an extension of the ‘anything goes’ mentality.” Lawrence recalled the old days where campaigns would engage in “dirty tricks” or send trackers to hound rival candidates at public events, but said, “I think this goes a step further.” “It’s not appropriate for someone to misrepresent himself as a reporter,” Lawrence said. Confronted with the established facts of the story and Klitzing’s confession, Davis’ campaign manager Matt Butcher initially tried to deny having any knowledge about the phone call. WCIA gave Butcher another 24 hours to explain how an unpaid volunteer living in Chicago could have possibly been aware of a closed press call happening downstate, and how that volunteer might have known to parrot Congressman Davis’ talking points. Yet, Butcher still declined comment. Klitzing acknowledged he did not act alone, and that he was asked to make the call and interject with questions. He said it was his idea to offer up a fake name. Klitzing also defended crashing Dirksen Londrigan’s press call, saying “it happens all the time.” The organizer of the call did not find it common or comical. “Impersonating a college student in order to lob false partisan attacks is dirty politics and shows how low Rodney Davis’ campaign is willing to sink,” Muller told WCIA. She claimed Davis “can’t defend his record, so he’s sending other people to make false attacks. Rodney Davis should condemn these tactics and stop the dirty politics.” It’s unclear if Congressman Davis has any knowledge of the hoax phone call his campaign commissioned, or if he’s aware of WCIA’s persistent efforts to seek any comment or explanation from his campaign manager. His staff has taken the unusual step of repeatedly ignoring phone calls, text messages and emails from WCIA’s political reporters, and no longer sends press releases or notices of media availability to WCIA’s political staff, despite frequent requests to include them in media releases. In addition, WCIA has sent six separate invitations for Congressman Davis to appear on Capitol Connection since his November 2018 election victory. His office has ignored or declined each one.)

CONSERVATIVE NEWS DAILY
— What Is A Person Of Non-Color? – Dave King
https://www.conservativedailynews.com/2019/07/what-is-a-person-of-non-color/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In truth, all skin has “color” so the claim of liberals about people-of-color is somewhat lame and vague. There are no persons of non-color, but we do have leftist Democrats who use skin color to get what they want and to punish people who block their corrupt power grabs. To use skin color for punishment or reward is a dirty thing to do because no one can control the color of their skin. But, of course, we know that this select protected group of people-of-color consists of Democrats who, in their own opinion, are not deferred to freely enough, but one wonders, with all of this discrimination going on, why so many dark-skinned people living in America are multi-millionaires. One also wonders how Hispanic and Arab people were able to jump on the people-of-color bandwagon and partake of the benefits intended for the descendants of slaves, who were genuinely injured by just being someone else’s property, and often they were the property of other “people-of-color“.)

— Roosevelt Road Corridor Study Update – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com
(THE ARTICLE: During its upcoming Planning Session on August 12th, the Wheaton City Council will discuss the Roosevelt Road Corridor Study with its consultant, present questions for further exploration, and receive public comment from the audience to aid in planning. (https://www.wheaton.il.us/930/Roosevelt-Road). The study area includes the south side of Roosevelt Road between Carlton Avenue and Main Street which is in my precinct and the south side of Roosevelt Road between Carlton Avenue and Warrenville Road which is in my precinct and in Wheaton’s West District. Recently, members of the “Concerned Citizens – Rezoning Roosevelt Road” Facebook group posted yard signs (21 at last count) at homes on Arbor Avenue, Golf Lane, Park Avenue, and Warrenville Road in my precinct that say “PRESERVE NEIGHBORHOODS RETHINK REZONING.”)
