IL GOP Launches 'Dismiss Quinn' Web Site
The Illinois Republican Party has launched a comprehensive web site, DismissQuinn.com, to show voters why Pat Quinn should be “dismissed” as governor this fall. The “Dismiss Quinn” title refers to comments from the late Chicago Mayor Harold Washington. “Pat Quinn is a totally and completely undisciplined individual,” Washington said when he fired Quinn as his Revenue Director. “He was dismissed, he should have been dismissed. [His appointment was] my greatest mistake in government.”
“Dismiss Quinn” follows on the successful “Blago Files” site that tracked the trial of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. “Dismiss Quinn” will be updated regularly with quotes, news stories, videos and links to campaign coverage between now and Election Day.
“Voters have to understand the desperate need for leadership right now in Springfield,” said Illinois Republican Party Chairman Pat Brady. “Pat Quinn has shown he is incapable of turning our state around and that we’ll simply get higher taxes and more borrowing under another four years of Quinn. That’s just unacceptable.”
The web site will put the spotlight on Quinn’s mistakes, flip-flops, bungling and overall poor management of the state along with his pledge to raise the state income tax. “We also want to make it clear that Pat Quinn was Rod Blagojevich’s running mate, not once but twice and never spoke out against him. In fact, he said just the opposite,” Brady continued. The governor’s office and both houses of the Legislature are controlled by the Democrats.
The new web site can be viewed at DismissQuinn.com (see link below). Visitors will be able to sign up for regular email updates and other announcements.
