With most of the attention regarding the U.S. House races in Illinois focused on IL-13, where Republican county chairmen are set to meet Saturday in order to slate a replacement nominee after Rep. Tim Johnson announced his retirement after winning the GOP primary on March 20, the most uncompetitive U.S. House race anywhere in the country, excluding races where a single candidate is unopposed, is in the neighboring IL-15, a sprawling district including all or part of 30 counties in East Central and Southern Illinois.
The IL-15 race features an incumbent Republican Congressman, John Shimkus, who is seeking a 9th term in the United States House of Representatives, and Fake Democrat Angela Michael, who is an anti-abortion extremist affiliated with Operation Rescue, whose leader, Randall Terry, also a Fake Democrat, ran against President Obama in the New Hampshire, Oklahoma, Missouri, and Alaska Democratic Presidential Primaries, in fact, Terry won 7 DNC delegates in the Oklahoma primary.
Angela Michael is further to the right of Shimkus on abortion and has not taken any position whatsoever on any other political issue. Angela Michael believes that George Tiller, an abortion doctor from Kansas, deserved to be murdered. If, by some odd occurrence, Michael is elected to the U.S. House and actually takes her seat in the House, she may incite violence on the House floor, and that is a scary thought. Angela Michael is not a legitimate candidate for public office.
Michael either ran or planned to run graphic anti-abortion ads on television stations in the St. Louis media market, which covers the western portion of IL-15. I do not know whether or not any of the graphic ads that Michael intended to air made it to the airwaves in the St. Louis media market, as I live in a part of IL-15 that is in a different media market.
Many of you may be asking how an anti-abortion extremist like Angela Michael was able to win a Democratic primary for a U.S. House seat as a fake candidate. Very simple: she was unopposed in the Democratic Primary. No legitimate Democrat, not even a legitimate Blue Dog, filed to run against Michael in the IL-15 Democratic primary. Given the fact that IL-15 was drawn as a Republican vote-sink in order to make the neighboring IL-12 and IL-13 Democratic-leaing, it would probably take a major scandal implicating Shimkus and/or the Republican Party for Shimkus to lose re-election, so no legitimate Democrat stepped up to run against Shimkus.
Barring the entrance of a third-party, independent, or write-in candidate, I intend to undervote in the IL-15 U.S. House race. I encourage voters in IL-15 to show up at the polls on November 6, cast a vote for President Obama and Vice President Biden for President and Vice President of the United States, and, unless a third-party, independent, or write-in candidate who is to the ideological left of Shimkus and/or intends to caucus with the Democrats if elected files to run against Shimkus, undervote (that is, not vote for any candidate on the ballot) for the IL-15 U.S. House race.
I'm not going to post a link to Angela Michael's "campaign" website due to graphic content.
