by: Diane Benjamin If you got a newspaper-like campaign mailing from Republican Fund for Progress & Jobs – you need to know who funded it. This information is from elections.illinois.gov The Republican Fund for Progress and jobs got their money from Prosperity and Jobs Fund. Where did they get their money? Prosperity and Jobs Fund got their money from Workers’ Interest Network. So who is that? It gets a little sketchy here because Workers’ Interest Network isn’t registered as a PAC. So, looking closer at Prosperity and Jobs Fund PAC – see the address 130 E. Randolph St. Ste 2600, Chicago. What is at this address? http://www.chicagolabor.org/about
It sure looks like UNIONS are very worried about Rauner being the next governor.

Final note: The Chairman of Republican Fund for Progress & Jobs is Steven Shearer. He is Aaron Schock’s former Chief of Staff. After the election if he returns to being Chief of Staff, what does that say about Aaron Schock?
