Rich gives us the latest oppo drop on Robin Kelly from Toi which cites State of Illinois investments in companies that deal with firearms–a comment suggests this investment predated Alexi’s time in office and actually was reduced during her time working for Alexi. So it appears to be a very odd hit piece especially because it keeps the debate on guns which is not a winner for Hutchinson.
But what I’m curious about is why did Stand for Children Illinois donate $100,000 to her? For those not familar with Stand for Children Illinois they are the Illinois affiliate of a anti-union school ‘reform’ group made famous with Jonah Edelman’s remarks
Yeah, them. The ones who created the super high majority for a teacher strike–which the Chicago Teachers reached.
It came in the General Election in 2010 so she hasn’t faced a primary or even had to ask questions about that donation yet. It might be the time to ask her what exactly does she agree with in Stand with Children’s agenda that got her $100,000.
