Defining what it means to be Progressive is Nikita Richard, failed candidate for McLean County Clerk:
Nikita “tagged” McLean County Clerk Kathy Michael and McLean County Sheriff Jon Sandage apparently to embarrassed them into allowing prisoners here to vote.
Sheriff Sandage responded:
Next, Kathy Michael responded, these comments appear to have been deleted or I would have gotten a better screen shot. Nikita then responded to both:
So, “progressives” expect taxpayers to fund a designated polling place in the jail, pay staff to man it (early voting too?), just so they can say inmates can vote when they already have that ability! I call this a #NikitaRichardsFail.
This defines what being a progressive means: Bankrupt the system.
Jenn Carrillo is melting down over Bernie Sanders. Obviously the Democrat Party has put the “fix” in to keep a socialist from being their nominee. Bernie is “lifting up”? Congrats Ward 6, you elected a person who thinks taking from people who earned money and giving it to others is “lifting up”. Jenn’s education must not have included a course in how capitalism has lifted huge numbers of people out of poverty around the globe. (She is an ISU graduate)
Eliminating Cash Bail, like Illinois wants to do, means putting dangerous criminals back on the streets. The crime rate in New York is much higher this year: https://nypost.com/nypd-provides-hard-proof-that-no-bail-law-is-causing-a-crime-spike
If you missed this story, Carrillo wants the same for Illinois: https://blnnews.com/2020/03/04/jenn-carrillo-vrs-common-sense/
The real purpose of the far left is to bankrupt the system and make you less safe. Eventually they think you will demand socialism so government can clean up the mess they created.
If a candidate uses the words “progress” or “progressive” now you know what that means.
