Nasty Machine

15Jul10

Illinois Democrats are trying to stop the Black candidate.

Chicago – On Wednesday, one of Governor Quinn’s routine bill signing ceremonies turned into a debate over ballot access and the Tea Party in Illinois.

A supporter of Republican and Tea Party activist Cedra Crenshaw jumped up and demanded to know why Democrats supporting incumbent State Sen. A.J. Wilhelmi, who was at the bill signing, had worked to get Crenshaw kicked off the ballot.

Crenshaw, a 37-year old mother of three who studied accounting at North Carolina A&T, submitted hundreds more signatures on her nominating petitions than required. But Will County officials knocked her off the November ballot, saying one of the sentences in her filing should have used slightly different wording.

“I am angry,” said Crenshaw, an African-American who rejects complaints that the Tea Party movement is racist. “And a lot of the voters are very angry, as well. Right here in the State of Illinois, the vote is being denied to the voters of the 43rd State Senate District by a frivolous challenge.”
