NPR ILLINOIS
— Londrigan Responds to “Fake Reporter” Incident – SAM DUNKLAU (DIERSEN: Of course my disgusting critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes would paint me as being a clone of Nick Klitzing.)
https://www.nprillinois.org/post/londrigan-responds-fake-reporter-incident#stream/0
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Betsy Dirksen Londrigan’s campaign called the incident “underhanded.” . . . Londrigan says the stunt was in poor form. “Congressman Davis likes to go on television and talk about civility in politics, all the while his campaign is again engaging in an ongoing series of dishonest distractions,” she said. Klitzing formerly worked on Governor Bruce Rauner’s campaign and served as the state Republican Party Director for a time. According to WCIA TV, Klitzing says he had received orders from higher-up campaign staffers. Davis campaign personnel have crashed Londrigan events before. “Congressman Davis’ field director showed up at one of my events drunk, and ended up getting arrested for assaulting people,” Londrigan said, recounting an incident from 2018. “It’s not the first time that somebody within the Davis campaign has behaved in this manner.” . . . When asked if her campaign is revisiting how it screens reporters for news conferences, Londrigan laughed and said it would be a “good idea.”)

My Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, gave me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, got rid of my mentor in 1987, 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 a $19,568 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. My Democrat IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, got rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974. My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)
