— Kirk Campaign Responds to Racially-Charged Debate Comment  Sen. Mark Kirk’s campaign issued a statement Friday in response to a racially-charged comment the senator made about Rep. Tammy Duckworth’s parents at Thursday’s debate. – Tom Schuba
http://www.nbcchicago.com/blogs/ward-room/Kirk-Campaign-Senator-Honors-Duckworths-Military-Service-399040371.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Sen. Mark Kirk’s campaign issued a statement Friday in response to a racially-charged comment the senator made about Rep. Tammy Duckworth’s parents at Thursday’s debate. “Senator Kirk has consistently called Rep. Duckworth a war hero and honors her family’s service to this country,” Kirk spokeswoman Eleni Demertzis said in a statement. “But that’s not what this debate was about. Rep. Duckworth lied about her legal troubles, was unable to defend her failures at the VA and then falsely attacked Senator Kirk over his record on supporting gay rights.” At Thursday’s debate, which was hosted at the University of Illinois Springfield’s Sangamon Auditorium, Kirk mocked Duckworth’s family history of military service after the congresswoman said her family has “served this nation in uniform going back to the Revolution.” “I had forgotten your parents came all the way from Thailand to serve George Washington,” Kirk responded. Duckworth, who lost both legs piloting a Black Hawk helicopter over Iraq in 2004, was born in Bangkok to a Thai mother of Chinese descent. Her father was a U.S. Army veteran. Kirk’s comment was met with silence in the auditorium and thunderous condemnation on social media. “That remark made by [Mark Kirk] about [Tammy Duckworth’s] ancestry is about the lowest thing I’ve seen in a debate,” Capitol Fax’s Rich Miller said in a tweet. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway also took the opportunity to slam Kirk, who has disavowed Trump and taken out ads distancing himself from the divisive billionaire. “The same Mark Kirk that unendorsed his party’s presidential candidate and called him out in paid ads,” Conway tweeted Thursday. “Gotcha. Good luck.”)

JOLIET PATCH
— Good vs. Blackburn: U.S. Army Vet Hopes to Unseat Two-Term Will County Auditor  Republican Gary Good wants to take the reins from Kevin “Duffy” Blackburn, who has been Will County Auditor since 2008. – Carrie Frillman  (DIERSEN: I audited federal agencies for GAO for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 levels, currently $92,632-$120,427. I worked for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $77,899-$88,286.  I passed the CPA examination and the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt.  I am a licensed CPA, Certified Fraud Examiner, Certified Government Financial Manager, Certified Financial Services Auditor, and Forensic Accountant.  I have master’s degrees in business, accounting, and finance and a bachelor’s degree in management. I served on the Executive Committee of the Association of Government Accountants Chicago Chapter for 12 years.)
http://patch.com/illinois/joliet/good-vs-blackburn-u-s-army-vet-hopes-unseat-two-term-will-county-auditor-incumbent
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Good is a retired U.S. Army Blackhawk pilot and strategist who holds a bachelor of science degree in information technology and a University of Illinois master’s degree. He owns Straterations, Inc., a coaching and consulting business based where he lives in Shorewood. In his campaign to become Will County Auditor, he cites specific Army experience that will benefit taxpayers. In a Daily Herald questionnaire, he said he wrote the branch’s business management strategy at The Pentagon for the accountability, streamlining and efficiency of $30 billion in annual business operations. “Auditing is about leadership,” he says, on his campaign website. “Leaders look beyond numbers and computer screens. They stand the line to challenge the status quo, seek what is right, and serve those around them. For my entire life, that is what I have done, regardless of title.” He promises transparency, a take charge approach to digging into county processes and decision-making and to serve as a watch dog for local fraud, waste and abuse.)

http://time.com/money/4532683/get-serious-about-retirement-income/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: 2. Develop a more detailed strategy as your exit from the workforce draws nearer. As you get closer to pulling the trigger on retirement, you can step up your planning effort. One critical issue you’ll need to address is whether to postpone taking Social Security benefits to qualify for the up to 8% higher payment you’ll receive for each year you delay. The answer will depend on such factors as how long you expect to live; the rate of return you think you can earn on your retirement investments; and, if you’re married, whether you and your spouse might be able to maximize benefits by coordinating when each of you claims. You can get insights into this decision by going to Financial Engines’ Social Security calculator.)

— Republican representatives withdraw from Black and Brown Coalition – Paige Allen
http://kwqc.com/2016/10/15/republican-representatives-withdraw-from-black-and-brown-coalition/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Rock Island County Republican Party announced Friday that it is withdrawing its candidates from forums hosted by the Black and Brown Coalition. Rock Island County Republican Chairman Bill Bloom says that during the planning of the political forum, a Republican representative was asked to leave, and was told the planning needed to be a “safe zone,” though a Democratic representative was allowed to stay. Bloom also says there were other issues, including unanswered questions about the format and the exclusion of several races. “First off, we weren’t quite sure if it was a level playing field. You almost never get a completely level playing field, we weren’t sure what the slope of this field was at all. It also seemed that things were a little bit slap-dashed, a little disorganized with how it was coming together. And I know they’ve been trying to put it together in a very short period of time, but, but, there was just too many unknowns, too many variables and too many things that couldn’t be explained, uh for us to retain our position in the forum,” Bloom said.)

http://townhall.com/columnists/jeffcrouere/2016/10/15/turn-out-the-lights-the-republican-party-is-over-n2232692
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The 2016 election will be remembered as the year the Republican Party ceased to exist as a viable national political organization. This is the year that an insurgent candidate, Donald Trump, captured the nomination despite the opposition of 16 establishment candidates, their operatives, party leaders, consultants, special interests, major donors and the majority of the “conservative” media. For a while, there was partial unity as most of the defeated candidates and their supporters endorsed Trump, even Texas Senator Ted Cruz. Yet, after the revelation of a 2005 ‘hot mic” recording of Trump engaging in crude “locker room” sexual banter with Billy Bush, an entertainment reporter, many of these party leaders have abandoned their nominee.)

MCCLATCHY DC
— Federal election agency gets complaint on DuPage Policy Journal – AP
http://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/politics-government/national-politics/article107700547.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: One of several startup newspapers tied to a conservative Illinois activist has been challenged in a federal complaint as a Republican mouthpiece, meaning it should count as a campaign contribution. Kim Savage, a Democrat from the Chicago suburb of Darien, argues in a Federal Election Commission filing that the DuPage Policy Journal is not an independent newspaper, but controlled by businessman and radio talk-show host Dan Proft through his political action committee, Liberty Principles PAC, which got a $2.5 million contribution last June from Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner. The paper is one of 14 co-owned by Proft that appeared last spring before the state’s primary elections. The complaint, filed last week in Washington, maintains the DuPage Policy Journal is illegally coordinating with GOP congressional candidate Tonia Khouri and that its publication costs should be reported as political contributions in her race to unseat incumbent Democratic Rep. Bill Foster. The PAC, Proft, Khouri for Congress and the Khouri campaign treasurer are named in the FEC document. It contends the DuPage paper is not entitled to a press exemption from campaign finance laws because it’s run by a political organization, is not published regularly, is sent to doorsteps or left in high traffic areas for free and includes “coordinated communications” with a candidate that the law bars for so-called independent expenditure committees. “I’m really concerned about all the dark money from special interest groups and their influence on elections,” said Savage, a former College of DuPage board member. She said she thought the newspaper “was a local, grassroots thing and I was kind of appalled when I found out it was a special interest group that publishes it.” Proft called the FEC complaint “factually incorrect in every possible way,” primarily because the papers are now owned by a private company called Local Government Information Services. According to records filed with the secretary of state’s office, Local Government Information Services incorporated on Aug. 15. “It’s a legitimate newspaper just like any other newspaper,” Proft told The Associated Press. “I’ll put the stories we do on politics and policy up against any other newspaper in the state.” The FEC must seek a response from the targets of the complaints within 15 days, then review those and decide whether to investigate further. There’s no expedited process despite the Nov. 8 election. Proft, a drive-time AM radio talk show host in Chicago who ran for the Republican nomination for governor in 2010, began publishing the newspapers last spring. According to the complaint, they are distributed in 14 areas, including DuPage County; Springfield; Chicago’s north, northwest, and south suburbs; the Quad Cities and the Illinois suburbs of St. Louis. Liberty Principles PAC, which Proft says is not participating in any federal races, was named in complaints about three of the newspapers — two in Chicago’s northern suburbs and one in downstate Cumberland County — filed during the primary election with the Illinois State Board of Elections. The papers were alleged to have improperly engaged in coordinating messages with legislative candidates and had not attributed their funding source. Documents indicate the board found the “coordinated communications” complaints were filed on “justifiable grounds” but took no action. In two cases, it ordered Liberty Principles PAC to include a “paid for by” disclaimer in future issues. Khouri campaign manager John Cooney issued a statement calling the federal complaint “a desperate attempt by Bill Foster and his cronies to divert attention” from issues such as protecting Social Security and Medicare and creating good-paying jobs. Foster, running for his fourth nonconsecutive term, declined comment.)

— Inequality Is Still the Defining Issue of Our Time  Fierce battles over trade, labor rights, and executive compensation will determine whether we can really narrow the gap. – Robert L. Borosage  (DIERSEN: What would your superiors say that they did to fight inequality?  My Democrat GAO superiors would stress that they forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, did not promote me beyond GS-13, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take an $18,459 pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.  My Democrat IRS superiors would stress that they did not promote me beyond GS-12, that they disallowed my education deductions, and that they disallowed my partial day per diem claims.  My Democrat Post Office superiors would stress that they forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests.  My aforesaid Democrat superiors would stress that the aforesaid adverse actions that they took against me directly benefited their employees who were poor, and especially their poor employees who were Democrat, minority, female, younger, and/or veteran.)

— The Case for Bureaucracy – PAUL R. VERKUIL (DIERSEN: I worked for IRS for almost 9 years and I worked for GAO on audits of IRS for 3 years.)
http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/03/opinion/the-case-for-bureaucracy.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Internal Revenue Service, for example, offers a compelling case for adding professionals. Mr. Trump talks about raising revenue by collecting unpaid taxes, and according to the I.R.S., the “tax gap” of unpaid but owed taxes is some $400 billion. If only 20 percent of that could be collected, it would yield substantial funds. But we need agents to collect these owed taxes and to perform audits. Historically, I.R.S. employees have returned many times the dollar amount invested in their salaries and benefits. The audit rate is now at a record low, however, and the I.R.S. relies increasingly on a tradition of voluntary taxpayer compliance, which is waning. (We can only imagine what a President Trump, who seems to boast about not paying taxes, would do to that tradition.) Moreover, another of Mr. Trump’s proposed revenue sources, stopping improper payments, would also be aided by more I.R.S. agents. The Government Accountability Office has shown that billions of dollars are paid to those who hack into taxpayers’ accounts and divert refunds. Existing staff members simply can’t keep up with these technologically sophisticated perpetrators of fraud. More professionals, schooled in cybersecurity, are called for. There is a common misconception that our bureaucracy has grown out of control. The federal civilian work force (excepting Postal Service employees) is about two million, roughly the same size it was during the Kennedy administration. In effect, the Civil Service has drastically shrunk since then, for the gross domestic product has multiplied five times, and numerous new agencies (like the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Homeland Security) have added significant and complicated missions to the federal agenda. Because of a shortage of federal positions, the only way these agencies could be staffed was by adding contractors, who, according to one estimate, now exceed the number of federal workers by a factor of four. These contractors, who are often more costly than a government counterpart would be, operate under increasingly thin federal management and scrutiny. The political scientist John J. DiIulio Jr. calls this “leviathan by proxy.” There are not only constitutional concerns but also management problems with contractors performing what are deemed by statute and regulations to be “inherent government functions.” These are functions that should not be outsourced. But when they are, it leads to further inefficiencies.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Illinois Senate endorsement: Seth Lewis
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/editorials/ct-illinois-senate-endorsements-madigan-rauner-cullerton-edit-20161003-story.html
(FROM THE ENORSEMENT: 23rd District: The remap of legislative districts in Democrats’ favor helped nudge Sen. Tom Cullerton, former Villa Park mayor and a cousin of Senate President John Cullerton, into this seat in 2012. Cullerton has done some things we like. He was lead sponsor of a bill blocked by Republicans to get rid of the unnecessary lieutenant governor’s office. But he doesn’t wander far off his party’s script and should have voted against a budget this spring that was $7 billion out of balance. He voted “present.” Our nod goes to Republican Seth Lewis, an insurance agent from Bartlett, who as a Bartlett Fire Protection District trustee hasn’t been afraid to vote against more spending. He also isn’t afraid to speak against generous pension packages that taxpayers subsidize — including that of his wife, who is a school superintendent. Ouch. We wouldn’t want to be at the dinner table for that discussion.)
— Illinois Senate endorsement: Dan McConchie
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/editorials/ct-illinois-senate-endorsements-madigan-rauner-cullerton-edit-20161003-story.html
(FROM THE ENDORSEMENT: 26th District: This northwest suburban seat opened in April when incumbent Dan Duffy resigned early. Local GOP leaders rallied to Dan McConchie of Hawthorn Woods, who won the March Republican primary. McConchie didn’t get our endorsement in that race, but he’s getting it this time. He has shown a willingness to work across the aisle and dig into policy, including school funding reform and anti-sex trafficking efforts. His opponent, Democrat Kelly Mazeski of Barrington, is an impressive candidate who has been involved in her local government. She characterizes McConchie as “a one-issue” lobbyist who is too socially conservative for the district. We’re not convinced. McConchie left his job with an anti-abortion organization and has shown he is not a one-issue legislator. Let’s give him a chance. McConchie is endorsed.)
— Illinois Senate endorsement: Mel Thillens
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/editorials/ct-illinois-senate-endorsements-madigan-rauner-cullerton-edit-20161003-story.html
(FROM THE ENDORSEMENT: 28th District: We like Sen. Laura Murphy, D-Des Plaines, because she is direct and outspoken. As a former member of the Des Plaines City Council, she advocated canceling a contract with a group opposing O’Hare airport expansion because taxpayers weren’t getting enough for their money. But so far in Springfield, she has stuck to the Democratic playbook, including voting for piecemeal budget bills that expanded government programs but had no real funding attached to them. She also supported a bill at the behest of the state’s largest employee union that was anti-taxpayer. This is a race where taxpayers could say “Enough!” with the budget games. We’re endorsing Republican Mel Thillens of Park Ridge, whose view of government’s role is less, less and less.)
— Illinois Senate endorsement: Michael Amrozowicz
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/editorials/ct-illinois-senate-endorsements-madigan-rauner-cullerton-edit-20161003-story.html
(FROM THE ENDORSEMENT: 31st District: Let’s get one thing out the way: Republican candidate Michael Amrozowicz’s name is pronounced “Am-RO-zo-wits.” The Gurnee resident and former Lake County Republican Party chairman is running against incumbent Sen. Melinda Bush, D-Grayslake, who was elected in 2012 and buoyed by a new, favorable district map. Bush voted against most versions of pension reform and supported a union-backed bill that most editorial boards from Rockford to Carbondale criticized as irresponsible and anti-taxpayer. The state is broke. Taxpayers are tired of shouldering all the promises. Amrozowicz would bring more fiscal sanity to the Senate. He is endorsed.)
— Illinois Senate endorsement: Pamela Althoff
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/editorials/ct-illinois-senate-endorsements-madigan-rauner-cullerton-edit-20161003-story.html
(FROM THE ENDORSEMENT: 32nd District: Sen. Pamela Althoff, R-McHenry, is running for a two-year term and says if re-elected, it will be her last: “I believe in term limits.” Appointed to the seat in 2003, she has represented the northwest suburbs ever since. She has been successful at passing legislation because she lobbies her colleagues on both sides of the aisle and in both chambers. She knows Democrat staff just as well as Republican staff. Not many legislators can say that. We disagreed with her handling of a government consolidation bill this spring — she watered it down — but she still got the bill passed and signed into law. Althoff is endorsed over Democrat Melissa Coyne, a small business owner and community activist from Fox Lake.)
— Illinois Senate endorsement: Sue Rezin
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/editorials/ct-illinois-senate-endorsements-madigan-rauner-cullerton-edit-20161003-story.html
(FROM THE ENDORSEMENT: 38th District: A rematch is underway between Sen. Sue Rezin, R-Morris, and Christine Benson, D-Ottawa. Benson lost to Rezin 46 percent to 54 percent when they faced off in 2012. Benson retired that year as superintendent of Streator Elementary School District 44, which has been struggling with a budget deficit due in part to the state’s inability to make full school payments. But Streator-area voters signaled they are taxed out. They rejected a school referendum to raise property taxes. Rezin would be a stronger advocate for those tax-weary residents. She is a consistent advocate for government consolidation and financial stability. We doubt Benson, who retired with a generous pension and is backed by organized labor, would be as prudent. With Democrats holding their 39-20 advantage over Republicans in the Senate, taxpayers can’t afford to lose another seat. Rezin is endorsed.)
— Illinois Senate endorsement: Michelle Smith
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/editorials/ct-illinois-senate-endorsements-madigan-rauner-cullerton-edit-20161003-story.html
(FROM THE ENDORSEMENT: 49th District: In this southwest suburban district, Sen. Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant, D-Shorewood, is facing Michelle Smith, R-Plainfield, who is the board president in Plainfield School District 202. On the school board, Smith has tried to keep the property tax levy steady while dealing with unpredictability from the state. “Attempting to build a budget every year is like throwing darts blindfolded,” Smith says. Incumbent Bertino-Tarrant should understand the pressure the state’s financial chaos creates in her district — yet she couldn’t bring herself to vote against House Speaker Michael Madigan’s budget, which was $7 billion out of balance. She voted “present.” Votes like that are the reason the state’s finances are a disaster. Smith is strongly endorsed.)
— Illinois Senate endorsement: Paul Schimpf
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/editorials/ct-illinois-senate-endorsements-madigan-rauner-cullerton-edit-20161003-story.html
(FROM THE ENDORSEMENT: 58th District: We know both Republican Paul Schimpf of Waterloo and Democrat Sheila Simon of Carbondale to be dedicated public servants. Schimpf served in the U.S. Marine Corps and was an adviser to Iraqi prosecutors during the trial of Saddam Hussein. Simon was lieutenant governor under Pat Quinn. But here’s a case where voters in Southern Illinois can demand change. The economy in this part of the state is desperate for revitalization. Democratic policies have not worked. Schimpf supports workers’ comp changes to make Illinois more business-friendly. He also supports tort reform and term limits. Schimpf is endorsed.)
— Illinois Senate endorsement: Dale Fowler
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/editorials/ct-illinois-senate-endorsements-madigan-rauner-cullerton-edit-20161003-story.html
(FROM THE ENDORSEMENT: 59th District: It’s strange that Sen. Gary Forby, D-Benton, claims to be a fiscal steward, often proclaiming that the state should retire its massive pile of unpaid bills. Then he voted in May for House Speaker Michael Madigan’s spending plan, which everyone knew was $7 billion short. He didn’t have to vote for it. Most Democratic senators did not. Remember that, voters of this district, when you show up to cast a ballot on Nov. 8. A better choice is Dale Fowler, mayor of Harrisburg, who knows what “reckless spending” actually means. Fowler is endorsed.)
— FROM THE ARTICLE: 22nd District: Tracy Smodilla of Bartlett, didn’t run in the primary but managed to ward off a Democratic challenge as a last-minute slated Republican. She’s smart, outspoken and fiscally conservative. She is not afraid to stand up to, well, anyone. She successfully fought an unnecessary tax increment financing district in her hometown. We hope to see her name on future ballots.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/naperville-sun/ct-nvs-dupage-county-early-voting-st-1002-20160930-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Early voting  Early voting started Thursday in the DuPage County, and has already drawn hundreds of residents eager to cast ballots in a presidential election expected to draw 80 percent of the county’s registered voters. “Early voting has started! We can vote for Hillary today! Then we’ll get a glass of wine,” said Maureen Quirk, of Wheaton, who joined co-worker Debbie Szydlo, of Carol Stream, at the Wheaton-based election commission office Friday afternoon to make official their votes for the Democratic presidential candidate. “She needs suburban white women. Well, here we are,” Quirk said. About 160 voters Thursday and nearly 200 Friday filled out ballots to vote for president, U.S. Senate, DuPage County offices and other races at the 421 N. County Farm Road office, said Joseph Sobecki, assistant executive director of the DuPage County Election Commission. The site is the first early polling place in DuPage County. Nearly a dozen more are scheduled to open around the county Oct. 24 and will operate through Nov. 7. Election Day is Nov. 8. The crowd Friday wasn’t exclusively made up of Democrats or Clinton supporters. Voters Bob and Carole Rutan, both 74, of Wheaton, said they are registered Republicans although they declined to name their candidate of choice. “I don’t like either one of them that much,” Carole Rutan said. The couple said they wanted to vote before heading to Florida later in October. Sobecki said he and his staff are preparing for record voter turnout — expected to be as high as 80 percent — in this year’s general election. The spring primary election drew a record number of DuPage County voters, with nearly 290,000 ballots cast. “It was the highest total number we’ve had since we recorded primaries,” Sobecki said. “We expect that trend to continue for the general election.”)
