(FROM THE ARTICLE: The state’s current Republican leadership — Chairman Tim Schneider, National Committeeman Richard Porter and National Committeewoman Demetra Demonte — came to Ives’ defense in a joint statement that contended “identifying and labeling Pat Brady as a Republican is false and misleading.” Ives weighed in on Twitter, saying: “Of course Pat Brady endorsed Sean Casten. Amoral, ruling class political hacks stick together.” “Pat Brady is a liberal Democrat and has been for some time. Sean Casten may have the backing of political hacks but Jeanne Ives is supported by hard working taxpayers,” the statement said. . .Schneider, who is now coming to Ives’ defense, was Rauner’s hand-picked state GOP chairman and denounced the 2018 ad. He said it did not reflect the Illinois Republican Party, called it a “cowardly attempt to stoke political division” and asked her to apologize and remove it. She did neither. State Republicans who are running a “races to watch” online program to help raise funds for a variety of contenders did not include Ives. State GOP officials said she declined to participate in the fundraising effort, but they support her candidacy.)

CAPITOL FAX
— Joint statement from ILGOP Chairman Tim Schneider and National Committeeman/woman Richard Porter and Demetra Demonte…Identifying and labeling Pat Brady as a Republican is false and misleading. If you spend all your time attacking and betraying Republicans – whether out of newfound convictions or to continue booking TV appearances – you are a Democrat. Pat Brady is a liberal Democrat and has been for some time. Sean Casten may have the backing of political hacks but Jeanne Ives is supported by hard working taxpayers.

— DIERSEN HEADLINE: One could ask: If Blacks are discriminated against, why would a White Jewish woman who grew up in suburban Kansas City pretend to be Black? What do you say to those who have urged me to pretend that I am of Swedish national origin to avoid the German sigma? During the 1840s and 1850s, all my ancestors immigrated to northeast Illinois from what is now Germany. Of course, needless-to-say, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always used that against me. In my defense, I stress that my grandfather on my father’s side fought the Germans during WWI, that my uncles on my mother’s side fought the Germans during WWII, and that my father would have fought the Germans during WWII if he had not been 4-F. Further, according to http://dna.ancestry.com, my ancestry is 33% Europe West, 28% Scandinavia, 24% Great Britain, 11% Ireland, 2% Europe East, 1% Finland/Northwest Russia, and 1% Italy/Greece.)

https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20200904/batavia-businesses-seek-city-help-with-problem-plagued-lot-off-route-31
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “Our parking lot is the actual Wild West,” she told the city council. “Guns have been pulled on people in the parking lot. We have found constant broken bottles and glass, needles, bags of trash, blood, vomit and worse bodily fluids, actual teeth, and more and worse that I won’t recount in this setting.” Anderson said graffiti has been a continual issue and workers and customers have been subjected to vile comments from people in the parking lot. “It’s bad enough in the daytime, but it gets exponentially worse once the sun goes down,” she said.)
