Tari Renner was back on WJBC this morning claiming the challenge to his petitions was “much ado about nothing”. Listen Here
Since Tari lives in an alternate universe, I got my hands on the actual tally sheets the Bloomington Election Commission used while reviewing signatures. Many were tossed because the Signatures didn’t match. Others didn’t live in Bloomington. Others were illegible, some weren’t registered to vote.
I purposely made these small to save space, but click on any of them to enlarge. These are only the signatures that were challenged. You can see for yourself that collecting valid signatures wasn’t a high priority. In addition, Kevin Gerrard was not allowed to talk about patterns. A court probably would have decided that differently.
Tari also claimed a notary is not required to administrator an oath. From the Illinois Notary handbook – page 23: https://www.cyberdriveillinois.com/publications/pdf_publications/ipub16.pdf
Much ado about nothing? You decide!
