    The media has been ignoring the other candidates. One candidate in particular that should be noted is Joyce Washington. She's doing a ton of television and radio advertising – in fact, she's the only one doing campaign ads along with Kelly. I like Joyce Washington because she is the only top-tiered candidate who isn't a politician. Kelly, like Beale's wife have been caught with these ghost payroll issues. We don't need that kind of leadership in Congress. I'm voting for Joyce Washington a true independent Democrat.

        Does anyone know who the owner(s) of the property are or were where the Peotone Airport is attempting to be built? I thought I read/heard sometime back – that the Jacksons and other Chicago politicians once owned or had some personal interest in the property. Please understand: I can't remember where I heard it – or even if there was anything to back up what was written…If anyone out there knows – please let me (all of us) know!

    Will wgn actually investigate the accusation? Of course opponents that are getting beat handily will try something to change the tides. Halvorson has raised 1/5th of the money that Kelly has raised thus far without the super PAC. Kelly has secured all the endorsements of the candidates who have dropped out, endorsements from news pubs. and from current congressmen. Kelly was running a campaign when this came out so what was the accusers political affiliation? Why wasn’t Kelly suspended if the allegations were substantiated? Lets do some actual reporting
