http://archive.azcentral.com/ic/pdf/resolution-opposing-legalization-marijuana.pdf  I would ask all of the Republicans who represent all or part of Milton Township to endorse the resolution including U.S. Representative Roskam; Governor Rauner; Lt. Governor Sanguinetti; Illinois Senators Connelly and Nybo; Illinois Representatives Breen and Ives; DuPage County officials Berlin, Bucholz, Cantore, Cronin, DiCianni, Eckhoff, Elliott, Grant, Grogan, Henry, Hinds, Jorgensen, Kachiroubas, Larsen, Murphy, Noonan, Redick, Ruscitti, Whelan, Wiley, Zaruba, and Zay; Milton Township officials Falbo, Heidorn, Hinkle, Keller, LeVan, Molitor, Muehlfelt, and Nathwani; and all the MTRCC members.)

ILLINOIS FAMILY INSTITUTE
— A True Story About the Southern Poverty Law Center – Laurie Higgins (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes talk and act like they are operatives or dupes for the Southern Poverty Center. They stress that while I was the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman 2005-2012, I always welcomed LaBarbera to speak at TAPROOT events.  They stress that I include in GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails links to articles LaBarbera writes. They stress that I, like LaBarbera, oppose the promotion of LGBTQ activity. Again, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes talk and act like they are operatives or dupes for the Southern Poverty Center.  Because I refuse to blacklist LaBarbera, they blacklist me.)
https://illinoisfamily.org/homosexuality/true-story-southern-poverty-law-center/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: She told me that the only reason IFI had been included on the hate groups list was that in 2005, IFI’s former executive director Peter LaBarbera had posted a very short article by someone not affiliated with IFI (i.e., Paul Cameron) for which LaBarbera had written an even shorter introduction.)
