Rauner supports these GOP tactics?

Success - Article sent! close

Libertarians turned in almost 44,000 signatures to get their candidates on the ballot this November, and Republicans challenged us at the State Board of Elections.

They knocked off more than 10,000 signatures, which still wasn't enough (despite the fact they only needed 5,000 to get on the ballot and we need 25,000).

Now they are going door-to-door to harass people who signed our petitions into backing away from their signatures. How is this legal? How is this not voter intimidation?

I thought Republicans supported competition, and democracy and freedom of speech, and were against voter intimidation tactics? Please, somebody needs to cover this.

Ask Bruce Rauner if he supports what his party is doing.
