Doctor David Gill needed at least of 10,754 signatures to get on the ballot for the 13th District Congressional ballot, while Democrat Mark Wicklund and incumbent Republican Rodney Davis, R-Taylorville, needed only about 735 signatures each.
Why the discrepancy? Simple. Wicklund and Davis are the chosen candidates of the Big Two parties, both of which believe they own the electoral process in the country. Sure, candidates from both parties take to they airwaves and tell people who register because their votes matter … but the reality is the only votes the Big Two parties want to matter are votes cast for Republicans and Democrats.
So, Gill filed a lawsuit, and won when a federal judge reinstated him. Because OBVIOUSLY, the ballot requirements were grossly unfair. But U. S. Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, who hears emergency appeals from the 7th U. S Court of Appeals in Illinois refused to reinstate him. Why? Because shut up that’s why.
Gill’s case challenging the state’s signature requirements will continue.
In a perfect universe, the Supremes will rules 8-0 that the signature requirements are nonsense. But then, in a perfect universe, Kagen would have allowed Gill to stay on the ballot.
And in a perfect world, Kagen would be removed from office as the hack she is.
