Man I feel sorry for the voters of the 75th District. They have an appointed incumbent yet nothing about Illinois State Rep John D. Anthony adds up. And that could lead to future trouble for an area that needs real leadership and vision for a diverse constituency.
Matter of fact, I have been directed to a website called the John Anthony Report and I have to be real honest here folks - if just a fraction of what is contained in it is truthful then I would urge district voters to unanimously oust him on Election Day.
The allegations ring out of bad Chicago Politics and that just isn't needed - nor wanted out in the suburbs. I mean, for those of us transplants - isn't that why we left Chicago? No one needs another Chicago style politician that is more concerned with filling their own pockets than taking care of the business at hand.
Speaking of the business at hand, I have to wonder what voters think of any person who would rather buy a degree through a diploma mill and then be handed the keys to say the bank safe? Do they really think that that money will lie secure? I mean think about it - how can anyone trust the qualifications of a person who didn't want to take the long and hard road to attain a proper college degree?
Look what America - and specifically ILLINOIS needs - are more well-qualified people to handle the mess the previous less qualified left them!
So backing someone who buys an online degree just ain't the way to go folks - never ever! That's nothing more than Academic Dishonesty in my opinion.
But that isn't the end of it when it comes to this incumbent.
There are other questions regarding his employment record, questions raised regarding his Yarn Foundation (which is supposed to help at-risk families but to date has spent more on buying a vehicle) and the employment of Rick Jacobsen who once had an Emergency Order of Protection filed against him and last but not least his strange friendship with the hate-spewing Ricky "Cracker" Hershel who uses You Tube to espouse the glory of poems like Kill, Kill, Kill?
Now I have to tell you that I haven't listed every concern listed in that John D. Anthony Report - but that is for you to do as an informed voter. But I urge you to do so because as the title of this post says - Nothing About John D. Anthony Adds Up and you just can't say that no one told or warned you.
And while we are at - I have been told Michael Madigan is behind Anthony and that raises a bigger question.
If you want real leadership from someone who is willing to work hard for each and every voter of the 75th -
Vote For Martha Shugart on Tuesday November 4th!
