    Illinois Review ^ | March 16, 2018
    Cook County GOP Chairman Sean Morrison is attempting a first time ever-seen tactic to overrule or undermine all of the Republican Township Committees that chose to endorse counter to his primary picks with a sample ballot that hit mailboxes Friday. In the mailing, Morrison writes in a small box a comment that leads unknowing Republicans to believe that any other ballots - possibly including local township organization ballots - are illegal. Wheeling Township GOP Committeeman Ruth O'Connell told Illinois Review, "This mailing undermines the work we've been doing in Wheeling Township and my authority as a committeeman. We endorsed Jeanne...

    Does integrity count anymore? It is a question worth asking. More importantly, it is a question worth answering. On Wednesday, retired General and former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Hugh Shelton made an astounding public remark. After having completed a spell-binding speech at Foothill College in Los Altos, Calif., as to the events of 9-11 and his 38 years serving in the United States military, Shelton was asked a question that brought a disquieting hush across the crowd. The Los Altos Town Crier newspaper put the events this way: "What do you think of Gen. Wesley Clark, and...

    CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - Erika Harold is a Harvard educated lawyer, a former Miss America, and a conservative Republican who's now running for Congress. Her beauty queen credentials have gotten her lots of attention, but an email that surfaced today could get her a lot more. Harold is running against incumbent Rodney Davis in a primary next March. Since she is bi-racial, GOP activist Doug Ibendahl wrote that she'd be good for the party. "Just be a great face for the Republican party," Ibendahl wrote. "We could actually do, in Illinois, we could do more than talk about diversity....

Tim Johnson, who dropped out of the race two weeks after winning the GOP nomination in March. The GOP county chairman tapped Harold, a Harvard Law School graduate who now works as a...

    He lays dormant for weeks or days at a time. Then out of nowhere, he trains his sights on a target, carefully fine tunes the focus on his scope, and pulls the trigger. The only difference in him and the guy that eluded police for weeks in the D.C. area is here in Chicago the sniper does it publicly and has gotten away with it for years. After all he's a radio talk show host and no matter what comes out of a radio talk show host's mouth its excusable right? Thusly this Chicago sniper shall be called Cool Kat....

    Miss America 2003, Erika Harold, yesterday said pageant officials have ordered her not to talk publicly about sexual abstinence, a cause she has advocated to teenage girls in Illinois. Top Stories      "Quite frankly, and I'm not going to be specific, there are pressures from some sides to not promote [abstinence]," the 22-year-old woman from Urbana, Ill., told The Washington Times.      In her first visit to Washington since winning the crown Sept. 21, Miss Harold resisted efforts by Miss America officials to silence her pro-chastity opinions.       "I will not be bullied," Miss Harold said yesterday at the National Press Club,...

    "Oh just go listen to her Kevin, give her chance," came the considerable urging of my friends. So Saturday night, there I am, finding myself winding the back roads of Rosemont, Illinois, trying to get to "the event" for the weekend - Amy Grant and Vince Gill live in concert. Arriving just on time, getting to my seat which was about 18 rows back center stage, I had just enough time left to say "Hi" to a few friends sitting nearby. One of whom could not resist. "Kev! Surprised to see you here!" "Well, hey, the opening act looks good,...

    September 23, 2002, 10:15 a.m. On Saturday night, more than ten million people watched the crowning of the best woman to repair the tarnished image of the nation's premier beauty pageant. The new Miss America may soon do the same for conservatives. There are no topless photos floating around of the new Miss America, Erika Harold, because she'd never put herself in that position — she is a leading advocate of abstinence and embraces her own virginity with enthusiasm. Miss Harold is a collection of contradictions: A Miss America who refuses society's conventions about beautiful people basking in promiscuity, an...
