McMIllan has this pinned to the top of his Facebook campaign page:
Even though Ray Lahood lied to the FBI, the justice system has laws for the well connected and different laws for the rest of us. Brad McMillan was right by Lahood’s side. He didn’t know Lahood failed to disclose a $50,000 check?
Lahood denied receiving the money from a Lebanese-Nigerian billionaire until the FBI showed him a copy of the check. Of course Lahood wasn’t charged with lying to the FBI. I wonder how he explains even knowing a Lebanese-Nigerian billionaire.
McMillan needs to explain his role. As Chief of Staff to Lahood for a decade, how could he not know? Nothing in the story says McMillian turned in his boss for not disclosing the “loan”.
What does that say about the character of both? McMillan is teaching kids LEADERSHIP? He runs the Institute for Principled Leadership in Public Service?
This is the leadership he wants for Normal? Haven’t you seen this story too many times already in Normal?
How far away from the corrupt tree does Lahood’s son Darin fall? He’s obviously on the DC Lifer-track just like daddy.
In case you forgot, Lahood was supposedly a Republican who took a cabinet level job with the Obama Administration.
