Republican gubernatorial candidate, slum lord

As seen in a post at Capitol Fax, The Joliet Herald News has a less than gleaming opinion of Ron Gidwitz, a leading Republican contender for Governor.

Illinois governors have come from all walks of life during the state's nearly 200-year history.

Some were soldiers. Some were farmers. Others were abolitionists. One was a doctor, another a pharmacist. Most were lawyers. A few were crooks.

And now that Ron Gidwitz has thrown his hat into the ring for the 2006 gubernatorial election, a new background could be added to that list: slum lord.

And this is the guy who claims to have support from Democrats?

That will surely change when they see this - they will run the other direction!

John Ganulis is freindly to lots of Republicans. Pat Verschoore,Joel Brusvold, our beloved Govener that admitted he voted for Ronald Regan.

Speaking of the idiot Reagan he was voted the greatest American on the Discovery Channel. Doesn't that make you ill?

Oh say it isn't so??!!! Youngdem, you just wrecked my day. That is the most disgusting thing I've heard for a loooooong time.

I kept seeing the promo ads for the final vote, and thought maybe I should go to their site and see who the 5 finalists were and vote, lest someone like Reagan get picked.

Now I know I should have, as should have thousands of others.

This is a pretty sad reflection of something... not sure which.

First of all that such a bogus and phony show was even created and aired, and secondly just how shallow and historically ignorant the people that watched it truly are.

He sold his company to the Canadians and then while a major part of the company moved the manufacturing out of state. Real Suave!
