Beware members of the turncoat party

Paul Froehlich and Fred Crespo. Many loyal Republicans worked to get them elected because we believed they had the same values and goals as we did. We gave them one of the greatest rights we have – our vote.

Then one day they woke up and decided to betray us and become Democrats.

Democratic voters beware, they could do the same to you. The day after the election they may change parties again. The “Turncoat Party” has a nice sound, doesn’t it?

I thought it was funny and odd that Crespo would send out a mailer that says something about what Peggy Brothman, Fred Crespo’s Republican opponent in the 44th District supports. He alleges that she is a ‘typical republican’ who supports the ‘insurance lobby’.

But when you look at Crespo’s 2006 handouts from special interest groups, he has $4500 given to him by lawyers and lobbyists.

Brothman, by comparison, has little to report as far as donations.

Crespo received a whopping $80,000+ from Madigan’s machine in order to get him elected.

Isn’t it high time we went back to representative government and starting electing people who aren’t supported by the teacher’s unions?

This is what you find when you research Crespo’s donations to his 2006 campaign:  Total Raised- $170,295

He should be careful what he throws at Brothman, LOL…his record is public and available for all to see.

We can only expect more of the same BS if we don’t find a way of booting the democrats out…Crespo is attached to Lisa Madigan and got over $80,000 in 2006 from the democrat machine here.  

Illinois is sick of debt and democrats only know how to make more of it.  It’s time we returned to representation in government here; their job is to SERVE, not to dictate and spend.  That’s why Peggy Brothman is the girl for me!  She spent 7 years in School District 54, and that’s a success story with a balanced budget.  

Just imagine if someone like that was working for us in Springfield!  I just love the idea of that!

This is an interesting race, from what I can tell, and we’re getting closer to finding out just what Illinois republicans think.

Peggy Brothman, who has a long career in the school district and served on the Schaumburg District 54 School Board for seven years, and served as president for two-is stepping up to oppose Madigan-financed Fred Crespo, who himself switched parties from Republican to Democrat-back when Parke, a long time republican, was about to retire after some 22 years.

That in itself was controversial.

Crespo is falling in with what’s popular here instead of representing his constituents; the Madigan machine is funding his ads, and he doesn’t have to do any fundraising; whereas Brothman has limited funding and in Barack Obama’s Daley democrat-controlled machine run state, has quite an interesting race ahead in these last few weeks.

Brothman has been successful in her door-to-door campaign, but I think it’s high time to step it up.

Crespo has now been a democrat for a couple of years, and he, too, like Barack Obama, ran on that “change” platform. That’s fitting; he “changed” parties when it was politically expedient.

He is going after the hispanic minority vote, leveraging his Puerto Rican minority background as a victim class, hoping that Illinoisans will buy and pull the lever for him again.

You needn’t look too far to see that democrats in Illinois work to become career politicians who don’t accomplish much except tax and spend.

Most people haven’t heard of Peggy Brothman, but it’s high time Citizens for Peggy Brothman stepped up to the plate and started batting. Peggy is for fiscal responsibility, and her involvement in school district 54 helped; they have a balanced budget.

What have the democrats done in Illinois to balance the budget? They don’t even have those terms in their vocabulary!

It should be easy to dethrone Crespo, if Republicans who are disgusted with the current state of the Republican party in Illinois- come out and vote to change that.

Get off your couches, ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to fight for right.

As Peggy says on her website:

The Democrats who are wholly in charge of this state have been given the chance, and they have failed. I believe that people in this area as well as throughout the entire state of Illinois want a new style of leadership. They don’t want politicians anymore, they want everyday people like themselves bringing their common sense attitude to tackle the challenges of state government.

Peggy is our girl!

Get rid of these tax and spend liberals!

And let’s get rid of the tax and spend convert to the democrats; Fred Crespo!
