Madigan backed down and withdrew the challenge! The kid is on the ballot.
Chances of anybody being prosecuted are zero.

Unless you read the Chicago Tribune or John Kass’s column, you may not be aware of the Chicago farce happening now. We hear stories of corruption and disappearing money, but nothing is more clear than the case of a college kid who had the audacity to run for Chicago alderman in Mike Madigan’s area.
His name is David Krupa, he’s 19 years old. He needed 473 valid signatures, he filed 1,703 with the Chicago Board of Elections.
Madigan’s machine must have been scared by a kid because they went into action collecting affidavits from citizens revoking their signatures. They turned in 2,796 affidavits.
See the problem?
Not only did they turn in more affidavits than the number of signatures Krupa submitted, only 187 of them actually signed Krupa’s petition.
That means up to 2,609 people committed a felony by signing a false affidavit. The Board of Elections will hear the case this Saturday.
Krupa’s opponent is Marty Quinn, no mention if he is related to the former governor.

We rarely get to see blatant corruption, this case is so clear if prosecutions don’t take place there is no hope for Illinois.
Krupa is a Trump supporter. Aren’t the Democrats always crying about voter suppression while claiming voter fraud doesn’t exist?
In Illinois – yes it does.
McLean County dodged a HUGE bullet.
