WASHINGTON POST
— Ghazala Khan: Trump criticized my silence. He knows nothing about true sacrifice. – Ghazala Khan  (DIERSEN: What have you sacrificed to defend and advance the Republican Party platform and the Illinois Republican Party platform?  Since 2000, I have put GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails together and sent them out. Those emails a) have gone out each and every morning since 2004, b) have gone out each and every evening too since 2015, c) have included links to more than 240,900 articles since 2004 and information on many upcoming events, and d) have gone out free of charge and without any advertising.  For every six links that I include in the emails, I spend about one hour; so since 2004, I have sacrificed about 40,150 hours of what is left of my life putting those emails together and sending them out.)
