Democrat Bill Foster is running for Congress… again. Recently he appeared on CLTV claiming that all sorts of newspapers have endorsed him in his race, but that lie was even too much for CLTV to swallow.
Quite a few of the heavy hitters in Chicago-area newspapers have endorsed Foster’s opponent, Judy Biggert. They include the Chicago Tribune, Daily Herald, Kane County Chronicle, and others. The interesting thing is that these papers all endorsed Foster in his past runs for Congress. But not this time
If you go to Foster’s website, you’ll see he claims to have been endorsed by the same papers that in fact actually endorsed Biggert.
Chicago’s cable TV outlet CLTV quizzed Foster on this subterfuge.
Foster is vying for the newly redistricted 11th District and faces Republican Judy Biggert on Election Day.
