DAILY HERALD
— Many local races have few candidates, but these buck the trend – Kerry Lester
http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20170404/news/170409696/
— A summary of Daily Herald endorsements  (DIERSEN: Not that my endorsement means anything, but I should write a book about past and present activists, candidates, elected officials, party leaders, major donors, political consultants, etc. in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois who state that they are Republican, but who hint/imply/argue/shout that no one should vote for any candidate that I endorse. The aforesaid include candidates who are on the ballot in my precinct for today’s April 4, 2017 election. Of course, if they do not win, or if they win, but get fewer votes than they expected, they will blame me because I endorsed them in my precinct letter and I displayed their campaign sign in my front yard.)

— Allstate ditches Fox’s O’Reilly show – AP  (DIERSEN: What complaints have been filed against you?  While I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years, no complaints that I discriminated against anyone because of their political affiliation, veteran status, “race, color, religion, sex (including gender identity, sexual orientation, and pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information,” or anything else were ever filed against me.  Nevertheless, the Democrats who ran the Post Office 1966-1969, the Democrats who ran IRS 1971-1980, and the Democrats who ran GAO 1980-1997 treated me like many such complaints had been filed against me.  They would not have treated me that way if I had been a Democrat, a minority, a female, and/or a veteran.)
http://www.chicagobusiness.com/article/20170404/NEWS06/170409962/allstate-ditches-foxs-oreilly-show
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Bill O’Reilly’s top-rated Fox News show may be starting to feel a financial sting after allegations that he sexually harassed several women. Northbrook-based insurer Allstate, automakers Hyundai and BMW, financial firm T. Rowe Price, drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline and online marketing firm Constant Contact said Tuesday that they have joined Mercedes-Benz in pulling their ads from the show. The moves come after a weekend report in The New York Times that O’Reilly and his employer paid five women $13 million to settle harassment or other allegations of inappropriate conduct by Fox’s star.)
