SPRINGFIELD - Even though Americans overwhelmingly support voter ID laws, and don't believe they discriminate, Illinoisans will be asked on the November ballot whether the Land of Lincoln should ever require that voters prove their identity before they vote.

Voters will be asked whether the State Constitution's Article III, Section 8 should be amended to say:

No person shall be denied the right to register to voter or to cast a ballot in an election based on race, color, ethnicity, status as a member of a language minority, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or income.

The language appears fair and more importantly, non-discriminatory, but when House Speaker Mike Madigan introduced the measure on the House floor for a vote last April, State Rep. David Reis (R-St. Anne) asked the Speaker how it would affect possible voter identification requirements. 

Reis told Illinois Review that he asked Madigan: "Would this prevent Illinois from requiring voter I.D.?"

"The Speaker said, yes, that's right, it would prevent voter I.D.," said Reis. 

Despite that answer all Democrat and Republican House members voted for the referendum, except for Reis and his Republicans colleagues Jeanne Ives, Tom Morrison, Mike Tryon and Brad Halbrook.

Heritage Foundation's Hans Von Spalovsky told Illinois Review he couldn't understand why the need for the amendment.

"It's already in federal law," Spalovsky said, "It's very strange they would go to all this effort."

Reis said the amendment is more about getting Democrats out to vote than it is about protecting voters' rights. 

"The Democrats are using every trick in the book to get voters to the polls in November," Reis told IR. 

Still other questions are unanswered about one particular phrase in the amendment, "status as a member of a language minority." Would that mean that it would be unconstitutional for polling places to not offer ballots in every conceivable language, or provide a translator for every language a voter understands?

Von Spalovsky told Illinois Review the phrase raised questions in unknown legal territory.

"Could someone sue the state of Illinois for not providing a translation for their native language? That's entirely possible. It remains to be seen to what extremes this amendment could be taken," said Von Spalovsky.

The amendment will become part of the Constitution if a three-fifths majority of those pulling a November 4th ballot vote for it.

A recent Rasmussen poll showed that 74 percent of Americans believe all voters should have to prove their identities before they cast ballots.


Debate Between Lisa Madigan and Paul Schimpf

Did you see the debate between Paul Schimpf and Lisa Madigan yesterday at the Tribune? It was more like a LOVEFEST FOR LISA as Paul Schimpf for Illinois notes:

"I hope you had a chance to watch the Chicago Tribune Editorial Board yesterday. Despite only receiving 1/3 of the speaking time, not having the opportunity to make a closing statement, and having the moderator admit to wishing that Lisa could be governor (yes, you read that correctly), I still brought forth three crucial, undisputed facts:

1. Lisa Madigan has become more corrupt and dysfunctional over the past 12 years.
2. Lisa Madigan has a reactive approach, instead of a proactive strategy, to fighting corruption.
3. Lisa Madigan was in a position to stop the NRI shenanigans ... and did nothing."

Illinois U.S. Senate Endorsement Interview

Incumbent Senator Dick Durbin (D) and challenger Jim Oberweis (R) engaged in an interview with the editorial board of the Chicago Tribune as leaders of Illinois’s largest newspaper decide which candidate to endorse.


Durbin caught lying about IRS contact at Chicago Tribune editorial board session

MORE INFO: Dan Curry (312) 970–1016

CHICAGO — U.S. Senator Dick Durbin was caught lying today at the Chicago Tribune editorial board session when asked about his role in the IRS scandal.

Durbin was asked unequivocally whether he or his U.S. Senate staff had ANY contact with the IRS during the IRS scandal other than the well-publicized letter he wrote asking the IRS to target Crossroads GPS on Oct. 10, 2010.

Durbin responded that there was no other correspondence upon questioning by opponent Jim Oberweis, a Republican state senator from Sugar Grove.

Oberweis then produced an email from a Durbin staffer to an IRS staffer two days after the Crossroads letter. The email was first revealed by the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform in its June 16, 2014 report titled, "How Politics Led the IRS to Target Conservative Tax-Exempt Applicants for the Political Beliefs."

"Dick Durbin flat-out lied to the Tribune editorial board. This is important because we don't know how deep Dick Durbin's role was in the IRS scandal that he himself characterized as reminiscent of the worst abuses of the Richard Nixon era," Oberweis said.

Oberweis again called on Durbin to reveal all emails and correspondence he and his staff had with the IRS and this time tell the truth.

Durbin has refused to support a special prosecutor in the IRS scandal and is saying that only 2 of 100 people in Illinois care that the IRS illegally attempting to suppress Americans' political speech.

Below is the exact question Jim Oberweis asked Dick Durbin at today's Tribune session:

During this campaign we have noted that you and a few other Democratic Senators played an integral role in targeting conservative Americans free speech rights by asking the IRS to investigate them. In addition to the infamous Oct. 10, 2010 letter, asking the IRS to investigate the conservative Crossroads organization, we have asked several times for you to reveal any other communication you or your office had with the IRS during the midst of the scandal. You have mostly refused to answer this question, but your campaign sent out a statement recently that included the following assertion: “Sen. Durbin has posted all communication he had with the IRS on his Senate website — and it has been there for four years.” Do you stand by your campaign’s assertion that you and your office had only that one communication with the IRS during the scandal?

What is the Black Robe Regiment?


A Brief History by David Barton


The Black Robed Regiment was the name that the British placed on the courageous and patriotic American clergy during the Founding Era (a backhanded reference to the black robes they wore). [1] Significantly, the British blamed the Black Regiment for American Independence, [2] and rightfully so, for modern historians have documented that:

There is not a right asserted in the Declaration of Independence which had not been discussed by the New England clergy before 1763. READ MORE:
