Meet David Krupa
and help him take out Mike Madigan’s General!
College kid beats back the Chicago machine
and Boss Madigan blinks
Kass summed it up in his opening line, “DePaul University freshman David Krupa scored an impressive victory in Chicago politics on Saturday: Boss Madigan — the most powerful Democrat in Illinois — backed out of a challenge to Krupa’s candidacy for alderman in the Southwest Side’s 13th Ward.
“I am truly humbled to be the first candidate on the ballot to challenge the 13th Ward since 1991,” Krupa, 19, told me at the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners offices on Saturday. “This is a huge defeat for (Michael) Madigan’s organization, and the beginning of the end of boss politics.”
David Krupa is a 19-year old DePaul college student who decided he didn’t like his representation in the 13th Ward of Chicago. So he circulated and filed timely and accurate petitions to run for alderman against Marty Quinn. That’s when the trouble started. Quinn attempted to get people to retract their signature on Krupa’s petitions by filing a signed affidavit that they wanted to rescind their signature – the problem is over 2600 of them never signed his petition in the first place, so it looks like they may have committed a felony by signing a false affidavit.
Well, this young man and his lawyer are going after them and they need our support to challenge these Madigan flunkies and to then win the race for Alderman and take out Madigan’s top political operative from his $104,000 city council job.
Earlier this year, the Sun Times described Quinn as, “a top-notch political operative known to colleagues as the “The General,” who masterminds pivotal legislative races in a way that has helped Madigan hang onto his Democratic majority in Springfield.”
So, taking Marty Quinn out as Alderman is like taking on Mike Madigan at his home – Mike Madigan lives in the 13th Ward and it has been his base to get elected for 50 years – and Marty Quinn keeps everyone in line and working to keep Madigan elected. Marty Quinn is also the brother of Kevin Quinn who earlier this year was fired from both his taxpayer job and his political job with Madigan due to a sexual harassment complaint by another Madigan campaign worker.
