Chicago GOP 'Community Organizer' Battles Obama Machine Print E-mail

About McKinley.jpgAs the saying goes, "it takes a thief to catch a thief," but it’s even better when a reformed Chicago gangster fights the city's Obama Democrat Party Machine. This is a street fight worth watching.

Unfortunately, the GOP Establishment and Karl Rove appear reluctant to support ex-con Paul McKinley, who won the Republican nomination, to campaign for the House 2 Congressional seat in Chicago, which had been vacated by Jesse Jackson Jr.

The Chicago Tribune reports that, "Republican voters are suggesting the 2nd Congressional District replace one felon with another after picking ex-convict Paul McKinley as the candidate to run for the seat recently ceded by former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr."

Nonetheless, the GOP Establishment is refusing to donate to McKinley's campaign, while Rove cohorts in Chicago are calling him, "an embarrassment." They claim he fails to pass the Rove litmus test to run for federal office as a GOP nominee.

According to the Chicago Tribune, "McKinley is a frequent protester in Chicago with nearly a dozen arrests to prove it. His campaign mantra has been to rage against the machine. During candidate forums, McKinley has given passionate speeches blaming all the district’s woes on the long rule of the Democratic Party machine on the South Side and in the south suburbs."

McKinley is quoted as saying that, "I'm the ex-offender trying to save the next offender, and I believe Robin Kelly, she will become the next offender, too. All of these next offenders in this district have been Democrats."
