  •  There have already been exposed scandals (0+ / 0-)

    about Kirk, most notably that he's been lying about almost every aspect of his life from a teenage boat accident thru "exaggerating" and "embellishing" (lying) about all details of his military service.
     But he had the reputation of a moderate and millions of Crossroads GPS anti-Dem smear ads.
     And people who criticize Alexi----it wasn't like there was a huge line up of sterling candidates to choose from.  It was Lisa Madigan, a sure winner but refused to run, or Alexi, the state treasurer.  And everyone knew they would pound Alexi with the bank thing and loans to unsavory characters, but you go with what you got.  And I think even tho some may have considered Alexi too young, I like him and thought he had the right head and heart, a progressive mindset.  And our bank friends said he was so unfairly smeared with the bank issues which were completely out of his hands.
