— Political operative accused of plying Solis with Viagra, arranging massage parlor trips is slapped with $25K fine for unregistered lobbying The Chicago Board of Ethics levied the fine against Roberto Caldero, a veteran political operative with close ties to former U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez. – Fran Spielman (DIERSEN: No one pays me for what I do as your GOPUSA Illinois Editor. Needless-to-say, I should sue anyone who hints/implies/argues/shouts that I engage in illegal unregistered lobbying.)
https://chicago.suntimes.com/2019/9/16/20869148/danny-solis-viagra-massage-parlor-ethics-board-fine-lobbying-alderman
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Sun-Times reported in January that the federal affidavit accuses Caldero of plying Solis with Viagra and arranging for the then-chairman of the City Council’s Zoning Committee to visit massage parlors, where he was allegedly serviced by a prostitute. Caldero was further accused of soliciting campaign donations from the Cacciatore family, which, among other businesses, owns Elgin Sweeping Services, a major street-sweeping company. At the time, Caldero was representing Elgin Sweeping in its efforts to obtain relief from a change in the city’s water billing practices that investigators indicated could have cost the company more than $1 million. Elgin Sweeping had a city contract to provide street sweeping services and at the time relied on filling its equipment at city fire hydrants. During several wiretapped conversations, Solis and Caldero made plans to exchange Viagra or visit massage parlors while also discussing how the alderman might help Elgin Sweeping reduce its water bill. In late 2014, Solis allegedly placed a series of calls and texts to Caldero asking if he had any of that “blue medicine,” meaning Viagra, according to the feds.)

NORTHWEST HERALD
— McHenry County reviewing marijuana tax; Franks opposes setting tax at cap Franks voices concerns about setting it at state-established 3% cap – DREW ZIMMERMAN (DIERSEN: Disgustingly and tragically, the more available that pot is, the more pot that will be bought. QUESTION: Who buys pot? ANSWER: Those who have severe physical and/or mental health problems.) 
https://www.nwherald.com/2019/09/13/mchenry-county-reviewing-marijuana-tax-franks-opposes-setting-tax-at-cap/atu38nj/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: However, Franks said he doesn’t think setting the tax at its cap is prudent. Therefore, he made a public recommendation to lower the rate. “You don’t want to make [marijuana sales taxes] so high that people are going to go and buy it in other counties,” Franks said. “Also, if it’s really high, it’s going to keep the illicit market going and encourage the illegal behavior that we’re trying to stamp out, so I think it’s bad business, and it’s also bad for our law enforcement.”)

Much of what IRS Revenue Officers do is similar to what GAO Analysts do, but they viciously rejected that. They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran.)

— Opt Out Hosts a Rally to Prevent the Selling of Marijuana – Aysha Ashley (DIERSEN: The many outstanding speakers at this outstanding event included Coyne, Gustin, and McCluskey. The many attendees included Anderson, Klaeren, Leong, Prueter, Rudolph, and Ruhl.)
https://www.nctv17.com/news/opt-out-hosts-a-rally-to-prevent-legalizing-marijuana/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “No” to Selling Recreational Marijuana  Opt Out Naperville, a newly formed resident group, hosted a rally with around 300 people at Central Park to urge City Council to vote “no” on selling recreational marijuana. “If they are not willing to opt out permanently, then let’s opt out and then send a referendum vote to the people and let the people decide what they want here,” said Jennifer Bruzan Taylor, organizer of the rally. “We have nine people on the dais at city council. This decision will shape the entire community, the future of it.” Council Members And it’s the future generation that some council members are concerned about. “We want to send a message to our young people. Our young people need our leadership. We had two young men from the high school level come and speak in front of the city council and they’re speech was all about opting out. And we as City Council need to be leaders and I think we should be,” said Councilwoman Patty Gustin. The Speakers Two high school students joined the multiple speakers who were there including a doctor, community youth pastor, and a recovered marijuana user. “I came from a really solid family, I came from good morals, good convictions. And I spent the next almost 18 years of my life chasing recovery because of the very first time I smoked marijuana,” said speaker Nick Gore. . .Opt Out But in the local society, others do not want this to happen. “I don’t think people want to come to the Thursday night band show concerts in the summer with the smell of marijuana in the air. I don’t think we want to go to the parks and bring our children with the smell of marijuana in the air,” said attendee Joan Dupre. Opt Out Naperville plans to attend Tuesday’s City Council meeting.)

— Rally urges Naperville to ‘opt out’ of legalized marijuana sales – Jake Griffin (DIERSEN: The many outstanding speakers at this outstanding event included Coyne, Gustin, and McCluskey. The many attendees included Anderson, Klaeren, Leong, Prueter, Rudolph, and Ruhl.)
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20190831/rally-urges-naperville-to-opt-out-of-legalized-marijuana-sales
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Close to 200 Naperville residents opposed to the possibility of the city eventually allowing the sale of recreational marijuana held a rally downtown Saturday urging city officials to “opt out.” “Naperville has built its reputation over the years as a family friendly community,” said Jennifer Bruzan Taylor, one of the rally’s organizers. “There is nothing family friendly about marijuana.” Speakers at the rally included doctors, city council members, parents and community organizers who said the city would see a rise in crime, drug use by youths and mental health problems if recreational sales of marijuana were allowed. “We’ve heard from expert after expert you get expanded drug use, especially among young people, in communities that allow marijuana sales,” said Naperville City Councilman Kevin Coyne.)

https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20190831/inclusion-or-indoctrination-how-opposing-sides-view-teaching-lgbtq-history-in-schools
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “The foundational issue is the leftist presuppositions about the nature and morality of homosexual activity,” said Laurie Higgins, cultural issues writer for the Illinois Family Institute. “The left relies on the assumption that homosexuality and opposite-sex identification are analogous to race, which is absurd. This is when education is transformed into indoctrination.” Higgins said the law is problematic because it doesn’t specify when LGBTQ history can be taught. The group vehemently opposes teaching such material in elementary schools. “If kids can’t understand the foundational assumptions, it is age-inappropriate,” she said. “It would be acceptable, if the teachers agreed to spend equal time on having students study the best resources on both sides of the (LGBTQ) debate in high school.”)
