Missouri-based PAC backing Walsh with big $$$

A super PAC has once again upped its bet on Congressman Joe Walsh, R-North Barrington, and now looks like it may well hit the $2 million mark on his behalf in the northwest suburban 8th District.

As of late Thursday, according to the Sunlight Foundation, the Now or Never PAC has reported spending $1.75 million here, mostly on TV ads promoting Mr. Walsh or zapping his Democratic foe, Tammy Duckworth.

The "independent" expenditures are up almost a half a million dollars just from earlier this week, with some tens of thousands of other spending by the group not yet reflected in Sunlight's database.

That's big money in anybody's ballpark and is exactly what Ms. Duckworth told me at the Democratic National Convention that she feared would happen at the last minute.

No damage here except for a few limbs down around the neighborhood.

This is a wonderful interview with this impressive young man.

Good move. A better move would be increased funding... but that's not going to happen. :(

October 12, 2012 (SPRINGFIELD, Ill.) -- The Illinois Department of Children and Family Services is canceling plans to lay off 375 employees.

Lee Enterprises' newspapers report that DCFS Director Richard Calica (KAL'-ihk-uh) announced the move in a memo to staff Thursday.

The agency says it will be working with state lawmakers to restore some funding to the department. DCFS says it also will pursue a reorganization plan that will reduce staffing while also trying to avoid layoffs.

Faced with severe budget strains, Illinois lawmakers approved a $50 million cut in the agency's funding for the new fiscal year. That led to plans for layoffs at DCFS this month.

Anders Lindall of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees says DCFS employees are "extremely relieved" that the agency has changed course.

Vancouver (WA) Democrats targeted with tomatoes

VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

A prank that started with a few thrown tomatoes now has Vancouver police on alert.

Officers are investigating letters left at the homes of Democrats throughout the city, according to a notice sent to neighborhood association leaders.

The author of the letters admits to throwing tomatoes at houses that have Obama signs in the front yard. The tomato tossing occurred in the middle of the night.

It all started months ago at the headquarters for Clark County Democrats, according to treasurer Marsha Manning.

Oh for corn's sake! I don't believe Diane Sawyer's opening on the evening news-

"Romney's now ahead". No goddamn way.
Diane Sawyer is a liar.
