Skip to comments.A College Kid Running for 13th Ward Alderman Gets a Lesson in the Chicago Way

A Southwest Side David vs. Goliath story.
The David is David Krupa, 19, a freshman at DePaul University who drives a forklift. Hes not a political powerhouse. Hes just a conservative Southwest Side teenager studying political science and economics who got it in his head to run for alderman in a race that pits him against the most powerful ward organization in Chicago.
The Goliath is the 13th Ward Democratic Organization run by House Speaker Michael J. Madigan, aka Boss Madigan, the most powerful politician in the state. Boss Madigan has long hand-picked his aldermen. He likes them loyal and quiet. The current silent alderman of the 13th Ward is Marty Quinn.
To get on the ballot, Krupa was required to file 473 valid signatures of ward residents with the Chicago Board of Elections. Krupa filed 1,703 signatures.
But before he filed his signatures with the elections board, an amazing thing happened along the Chicago Way.
An organized crew of political workers or maybe just civic-minded individuals who care about reform went door to door with official legal papers. They asked residents to sign an affadavit revoking their signature on Krupas petition.
More than 2,700 revocations were turned over to the elections board to cancel the signatures on Krupas petitions.
The number of revocations far exceeds the number of signatures Krupa collected. That means false affidavits were filed with the elections board.
This is clown school and election fraud. This is going way, way beyond the line. David is a huge underdog. Go ahead and beat him on Election Day, or do subtle fraud, like taking away yard signs, but when this number of false affidavits are filed, youre talking fundamental fraud, epic fraud.

Maybe Russian hackers collected the perjured affidavits.
This young man got an education here. He’s learning some life lessons.
This (white) guy is facing a truly "deep state." If any challenges get through the #BLM feminist Foxx, then his case will go to Lisa Madigan. And she was installed by her father as AG to protect his legal flanks in all matters.
Just goes to show how serious (read money$$$$$) they are about keeping power.
The comical thing here....out of these 2,700 revoked signatures....they may find out that over 1,000 of them didn’t sign the document in the first place, and that more than another thousand....are non-existent or dead voters. We might find that the kid has just enough to make it and proceed on.
That means over 2,500 cases of fraud.
Nothing will happen. It is Chicago, and Madigan is The Boss.
He is serving as a visible canary in a mine.
The Christian story embraces sacrifices as well as victories. God does not ignore the sacrifices by any means.
The lesson that needs to be learned is told us in the bible. When evil men get their way do not fret [but raise your eyes to God].
Indeed the best thing here could be to play it cool, say sardonically to the Machine “Hey, nice try, you got 187 cancellations” and go right on.
Who is bigger? The Machine, or God?
The Battle of Athens, Georgia comes to mind.
If only 187 of the 1703 signatures were revoked, then he still has 3 times the 473 valid signatures required!
"To get on the ballot, Krupa was required to file 473 valid signatures of ward residents with the Chicago Board of Elections. Krupa filed 1,703 signatures."
We turned in 1,703 signatures. We compared them to the 2,796 revocations, and found only 187 matches, meaning only 187 people who signed Davids petitions filed revocations,
I wonder: Will truth-seeking millenials become a political force? #Walkaway?
DePaul has a conservative student. David needs to watch his back, or he'll commit suicide...
Reasons abound for calling them the demonicRAT Party.
“Who sent you?”
“Nobody, I wanted to get involved in the political process.”
“Yay, okay, well we don’t want nobody that nobody sent.”
and a city that elected Rham Immanuel - says a lot.
I hope the reporter has a bodyguard.
Time to lock & load.
“youre talking fundamental fraud, epic fraud.”
Ah, come on; it’s Chicago.
