Why is a Democrat running in the Republican Primary?
Why is Adam Kinzinger trying to buy a local judge?
What is just as disturbing as Adam Kinzinger, who hasn’t lived in the 11th Circuit for a long time, trying to buy a local judge, is all the democratic influence being peddled in this local judge’s race.
In WGLT’s silly story (https://blnnews.com/2022/05/13/wglt-silly-story/) they quoted “a representative of the Citizens to Elect Judge Amy McFarland” named John Kim. Having not heard that name in Republican circles before, I did some checking. This is John Kim:
Zoom in on the right side:
That is John Kim in the Biden Harris shirt walking in a parade for Tammy Duckworth. He is who Amy McFarland has appointed a spokesman for her campaign. You don’t need to FOIA his voting record to know that someone wearing a Biden Harris shirt walking in a parade for Tammy Duckworth is a hard democrat but anyone interested in doing so, go ahead.
Mr. Kim’s involvement in attempting to influence the GOP primary doesn’t stop with being the spokesman for the Amy McFarland campaign. Did Kim write this email Amy sent on her government email? Is this even legal?
Less than 30 days remain to get out the vote for Judge Amy! We need your help to talk to voters and encourage everyone to vote in the Republican primary on or before June 28.
Here are two opportunities to volunteer THIS weekend:
Saturday, June 4 at 1pm
Evans Junior High Parking Lot
2901 Morrissey Dr.
Bloomington, IL 61704
Sunday, June 5 at 1pm
15910 Pebble Beach Rd.
Bloomington, IL 61705
We’ll divide into walk teams and spend about an hour knocking on doors, talking to voters, and leaving literature. No experience necessary – we will provide everything you need! Friends, neighbors, families/wagons are welcome.
- Why would anyone need to be “encouraged to vote in the Republican primary” if they were actually Republicans?
- Wanna guess who lives at 15910 Pebble Beach Road? You guessed it, John Kim.
- Does he wear his Biden/Harris shirt when he is walking door to door for Amy McFarland?
Kim is not the only high profile progressive in town trying to interfere in a GOP primary:
Mathy has authored many social media posts describing exactly how much we need Amy McFarland on the bench. If you loved his policies on the city council, you’ll likely love her rulings from the bench.
David Gill, a four time failed progressive Democrat congressional candidate, not only endorsed McFarland but she shared his endorsement for the world to see and took money from his very progressive wife.
Our county GOP leadership has made public statements about the way the Irving campaign is operated. Will anyone in GOP acknowledge not just the money flowing into a local campaign from progressives (I’ve already written about that here ( https://blnnews.com/2022/05/01/don-knapp-vrs-amy-mcfarland/) but how much involvement local progressives and democrats are attempting to have in the selection of a circuit court judge in a GOP primary?
If not, maybe I’ll have to come to the GOP breakfast June 18th and ask the questions myself.
If her progressive donors, progressive spokesman, relationship with someone who tried to unseat a GOP congressmen four times, and relationship with Adam Kinzinger aren’t enough for voters to see the light, see the pictures below. How many Republicans have campaign signs for a democrat in their yard? Duh, McFarland is a Democrat running as a Republican. Too bad the local GOP decided to abandon that accountability committee.
Want one more? Progressive liberal Bob Bradley wrote a Letter to the Editor supporting McFarland. I hope the local GOP likes Democrats picking their candidates!
Why do Republicans never run as Democrats?
