Bill Kelly’s connection to Judy Baar Topinka is now official and out in the open…
For those in Illinois interested in the upcoming primary-this is a must-see. See here at Cao’s blog (same info)-More and more is adding up on this-Bill Kelly’s live-in girlfriend is Laura Grock, (aka Grochocki) the VP for Martin Janis. See it at this link, but here’s the screengrab.
It’s been said, and here’s the proof- that Martin Janis is not only a personal friend of Topinka’s, but gave her monetary support- $1,000 on 6/30/2005, $500 on 6/4/2003, and also gives money to Lisa Madigan and the democrats. This is really interesting, considering Kelly is accusing Dodge of doing this…split-the-vote thing for Topinka. What’s obvious at this point is that Kelly’s schtick has a purpose…and it’s not to “win” the election…but to help Topinka win…with her usually 30-40% of the republican vote.
Here it is from the Illinois State Board of Elections:
Then you have what the Martin E. Janis firm gave up to Judy Baar Topinka…
And what is left from all this is a full picture that what Bill Kelly is accusing Dodge of doing, HE is actually doing!! It’s amazing. I was absolutely floored when I saw him making those accusations toward Dodge on Channel 11….but all the pieces fit together!
Wow, Laura, I can’t imagine you didn’t know anything about this!
Another thing that is falling apart is Kelly’s integrity–billing himself as ‘someone you can trust’.
Kelly’s path is littered with broken promises; as he scams his way into events and tries to get away with not paying for others. His fundraisers are leaving him ‘in the hole’…he’s not making money from them. You need money to run a state-wide candidacy–you need money to run a local candidacy…it’s virtually impossible to get your name out there without it.
Kelly did not attend the Wauconda GOP fundraiser. The deal was-that if he was, endorsed, he’d commit to a $300 table…he couldn’t come up with it. Here he touts himself a “A Celebrity TV producer” with rave reviews and scores of fans-touts the Emmy award winning production company as the example of why he’s wildly successful with a a crayzee wild successful show, right?– he’s running this state wide campaign for Illinois Comptroller--but cannot find $300?
Remember, he’s running for Comptroller…somebody who should be good with money and fiscally responsible.
Still working on it-but there is a lot to uncover here…there are a lot of records to scrutinize but I’m developing a picture of what’s been going on here.
