ILLINOIS REPUBLICAN LEADER ANDY MCKENNA IS NOW CORRUPTING COLLEGE YOUNG REPUBLICANS
THE MCKENNA FAMILY'S "COMBINE" CREW CONTINUES TO SYSTEMATICALLY DESTROY THE INTEGRITY OF EVERY ASPECT OF THE ILLINOIS REPUBLICAN PARTY
(CHICAGO)(January 24, 2008) What is Republican Chairman Andy McKenna teaching Illinois College Republicans? How to be just as crooked and petty as the McKenna Family "Combine" crew that controls and corrupts Illinois politics in both parties.
This weekend (January 25-26) the "College" Young Republicans are holding a "convention" in Chicago. Sadly, the college crew seems to be acting like a pale imitation of Andy McKenna's dirty tricks squad that is slowly destroying the foundations of the Illinois Republican Party. There are three candidates for United States Senator in the February 5th primary. Two of them have been locked out of the Young Republicans convention.
Instead of encouraging college students to invite all three senate candidates to engage in a vigorous debate, Andy McKenna is trying to sell young people his personal stooge, backed by the McKenna business empire, as the only "Republican" candidate to be the designated loser for Senator Dick Durbin. What a lesson to teach young people. Money talks and Republicans walk. For shame. The crooked "Combine" that corrupts and controls Illinois politics, lives.
In another act of Richie Rich pettiness, McKenna has also removed any information about other U. S. Senate candidates from the Party's web site, WeAreIllinois.org.
What are McKenna Senior (the billionaire businessman) and Junior (the hapless heir and Republican Party Chairman) teaching young people? That when your daddy is billionaire businessman Andy McKenna, Sr., he can buy a political party and Junior, the underachieving scion, can use the people's trust as a plaything to single-handedly sabotage the future of every Illinois Republican candidate.
On February 6th, everything changes. The Andy McKennas go. McKenna, senior can take his dirty, Daley-influenced dollars and depart the Republican Party under cover of darkness. And he can take his worthless son, "Junior," with him. (Note: there are actually four (4) Andy McKennas, but that family juggles numbers the same way they juggle everything else.)
As for the College Republicans, we will begin a rebuilding program that reintroduces them to the enduring principles of democracy that have been be defiled by the Andy McKennas (all of them) and their "Combine" crew. We will teach Young Republicans how to fight to win, not how to prepare to surrender to Dick Durbin and the diktats of the corrupt "Combine" the McKenna family supports.
