Springfield, IL. (ECWd) –
A motion to reconsider a previous decision of the Illinois State Board of Elections to fine the Mautino campaign and close the complaint was filed.
The board met this morning, and with a 4-4 vote the motion did not pass.
This vote was on party lines: Democrats voting Nay and Republicans voting Aye.
This board has failed the public once again by refusing to answer the original complaint.

Failure to rule on the allegations in complaint would appear to be official misconduct in my opinion.

First, is there a record of those that voted in favor of a review and those that voted in opposition?
At least 4 members need to be dismissed and replaced. It is likely not possible, but someone needs to take this matter to Court. Even a 5th grader could see the scheme which was presented in evidentiary form to this Board. I think Mike Madigan and Mautino are best friends – and this is just more of Illinois corruption. Are there a few good men any more?

I just stole thousands of dollars from the public, please don’t throw me in jail or ask me to reimburse all that I embezzled from my employers.!!!! I’ll slip you a few thousand each to get me off.

Thanks Mike for Board Member names. I am sure the 4-4 vote was split down party lines and not based on the mountain of evidentiary material presented to the Board of Elections. What a travesty of justice. No sense in having any laws if they are not applied to everyone equally – Frank Mautino included.

How much was paid on bribes to get this vote. Or is this a case of covering each others asses? The Chicago machine lives on and on, who said the Mafia no longer is in service.
