Well, well. Dallas Ingemunson's little Boy wants to follow in his father's footsteps. And Daddy sure is piling on the cash. Not his cash, though. That's not the Republican way we've come to know and love.
It's other people's money. To the tune of more than $113,000 at year-end.
Boy's opponent for Kendall County State's Attorney in the March primary is an assistant State's Attorney in the Kendall County State's Attorney's office and has already received the endorsements of most of the county officials, notably Treasurer Jill Ferko, who beat the "establishment Republican" candidate in 2002.
If the money spent so far is any indication, though, Ingemunson's family pursuit of power means they'll stop at nothing to win.
As a Democrat, I'd like to see at least one D in Kendall County government (which would be a first in history, honestly). But as a spectator in a race where there is no Democrat with the nerve to run, I'm backing Weis.
And opposing Dallas Ingemunson, Denny "J. Dennis" Hastert's original benefactor.
