🚨⚠ Bad Illinois Take Alert ⚠ 🚨
Darren Bailey, who represents Illinois’ 109th district (Olney, Flora and Fairfield) is maybe the worst Illinois politician in recent memory. Today, he unloaded this doozy of a take – maybe the worst I’ve ever seen:
This is just a dogwhistle, and has no basis in actual fact, but that doesn’t seem to concern Bailey.
He’s also an avid anti-vaxxer, and is a leading sponsor of HR-101, the “Secede-From-Chicago” proposal that has been picking up some publicity lately. I mentioned it earlier this week, but it goes without saying that this bill would actively hurt downstate for no intelligible reason.
This is a short but good urban planning read. It is worth your time.
