— Kirk Campaign Responds to Racially-Charged Debate Comment  Sen. Mark Kirk’s campaign issued a statement Friday in response to a racially-charged comment the senator made about Rep. Tammy Duckworth’s parents at Thursday’s debate. – Tom Schuba
http://www.nbcchicago.com/blogs/ward-room/Kirk-Campaign-Senator-Honors-Duckworths-Military-Service-399040371.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Sen. Mark Kirk’s campaign issued a statement Friday in response to a racially-charged comment the senator made about Rep. Tammy Duckworth’s parents at Thursday’s debate. “Senator Kirk has consistently called Rep. Duckworth a war hero and honors her family’s service to this country,” Kirk spokeswoman Eleni Demertzis said in a statement. “But that’s not what this debate was about. Rep. Duckworth lied about her legal troubles, was unable to defend her failures at the VA and then falsely attacked Senator Kirk over his record on supporting gay rights.” At Thursday’s debate, which was hosted at the University of Illinois Springfield’s Sangamon Auditorium, Kirk mocked Duckworth’s family history of military service after the congresswoman said her family has “served this nation in uniform going back to the Revolution.” “I had forgotten your parents came all the way from Thailand to serve George Washington,” Kirk responded. Duckworth, who lost both legs piloting a Black Hawk helicopter over Iraq in 2004, was born in Bangkok to a Thai mother of Chinese descent. Her father was a U.S. Army veteran. Kirk’s comment was met with silence in the auditorium and thunderous condemnation on social media. “That remark made by [Mark Kirk] about [Tammy Duckworth’s] ancestry is about the lowest thing I’ve seen in a debate,” Capitol Fax’s Rich Miller said in a tweet. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway also took the opportunity to slam Kirk, who has disavowed Trump and taken out ads distancing himself from the divisive billionaire. “The same Mark Kirk that unendorsed his party’s presidential candidate and called him out in paid ads,” Conway tweeted Thursday. “Gotcha. Good luck.”)

JOLIET PATCH
— Good vs. Blackburn: U.S. Army Vet Hopes to Unseat Two-Term Will County Auditor  Republican Gary Good wants to take the reins from Kevin “Duffy” Blackburn, who has been Will County Auditor since 2008. – Carrie Frillman  (DIERSEN: I audited federal agencies for GAO for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 levels, currently $92,632-$120,427. I worked for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $77,899-$88,286.  I passed the CPA examination and the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt.  I am a licensed CPA, Certified Fraud Examiner, Certified Government Financial Manager, Certified Financial Services Auditor, and Forensic Accountant.  I have master’s degrees in business, accounting, and finance and a bachelor’s degree in management. I served on the Executive Committee of the Association of Government Accountants Chicago Chapter for 12 years.)
http://patch.com/illinois/joliet/good-vs-blackburn-u-s-army-vet-hopes-unseat-two-term-will-county-auditor-incumbent
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Good is a retired U.S. Army Blackhawk pilot and strategist who holds a bachelor of science degree in information technology and a University of Illinois master’s degree. He owns Straterations, Inc., a coaching and consulting business based where he lives in Shorewood. In his campaign to become Will County Auditor, he cites specific Army experience that will benefit taxpayers. In a Daily Herald questionnaire, he said he wrote the branch’s business management strategy at The Pentagon for the accountability, streamlining and efficiency of $30 billion in annual business operations. “Auditing is about leadership,” he says, on his campaign website. “Leaders look beyond numbers and computer screens. They stand the line to challenge the status quo, seek what is right, and serve those around them. For my entire life, that is what I have done, regardless of title.” He promises transparency, a take charge approach to digging into county processes and decision-making and to serve as a watch dog for local fraud, waste and abuse.)
