Rep. Walsh Responds to Reports of Voter Intimidation by Duckworth Campaign

From the campaign to reelect Rep. Joe Walsh (R, Illinois 8th District)…

The Walsh Campaign has received numerous phone calls and complaints from voters claiming hired workers from Chicago have gone door-to-door in the suburban 8th district coercing residents to vote for Tammy Duckworth. Following these many claims, Congressman Joe Walsh released the following statement:

“Ms. Duckworth has resorted to desperate tactics by hiring Chicago Machine goons to intimidate voters in the suburban 8th district. What else is to be expected from a Rod Blagojevich protégé? With the General of corruption in Illinois serving prison time, they now serve one of his Lieutenants, Tammy Duckworth. Humiliating and silencing whistleblowers, using tax dollars for political purposes and now hiring Machine goons – What won’t Ms. Duckworth do to win?

“The people of Schaumburg, Elk Grove Village, Addison and towns across the 8th district reject this kind of campaign. The suburban voters of the 8th want an independent voice not beholden to Chicago interests, and they clearly don’t want Chicago style politics in their neighborhoods. I call on Ms. Duckworth to call back her Machine operatives and try to run a true grassroots campaign.”
