— Playing dodge ball in candidate questionnaires – Andy Shaw  (DIERSEN: While I served as the chairman of TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois 2005-2012, my critics/opponents were furious that I asked their candidates who spoke at TAPROOT events if they supported all the planks in the Republican Party platform and in the Illinois Republican Party platform and the Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC) resolution against video gambling.  Most commonly, my critics/opponents reject the traditional family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving), and Second Amendment planks and the MTRCC resolution against video gambling.)
