Jan Schakowsky (D, IL): SEALs are criminals!
Rep. Schakowsky, attempting to explain why photos of the military operation that killed Osama bin Laden would not be released, had this to say: “These are pictures of a violent crime scene. This is a dead person. A dead Osama bin Laden,” she said. Now, I will readily grant that normally a statement like this should be subject to Occam’s Razor. The simplest way to | Read More »
Meet Alex Armour, Jan Schakowsky’s (D, IL-09) CoS.
…judging from his Twitter account (H/T: The Campaign Spot) Armour despises and loathes the roughly 60-70% of the population* of the United States that had a problem with the Ground Zero Mosque. Extra points: Armour apparently also thinks that the expression of said problem demonstrates an ignorance of the purpose of the First Amendment, instead of it being what the First Amendment is for.

Jan Schakowsky (D, IL-09) saves Shorebank after all.
Back in May it was reported that the failing, yet politically-connected Shorebank in Illinois was to be bailed out.

Through her mutual funds, Schakowsky has | Read More »

(Via Gateway Pundit) This got filmed yesterday, and shows an organizer for HCAN giving quick instructions on how to keep Rep. Jan Schakowsky‘s constituents from being heard when they raise concerns on the health care rationing bill: As Glenn Reynolds notes, there’s a certain amount of projection going on, here. Moe Lane
Jan Schakowsky (D, IL-09) loves her tax fraud.
I agree with Glenn Reynolds that Rep Schakowsky’s comments about the Tea Parties (‘despicable’ and ‘shameful’) were ‘pathetic.’ I also agree that the fact that she’s married to a convicted tax fraud (not to mention, Huffington Post writer) to be ‘ironic.’ But I’d like to add one: Utterly Typical: “The husband of an Illinois congresswoman was sentenced to five months in prison Wednesday.
