Photos from a fundraising event for a Democratic state senator in Illinois surfaced over the weekend showing a mock assassination of President Trump, prompting apologies and condemnation.

The pictures from a fundraiser for Sen. Martin Sandoval were initially posted on Facebook by a woman who attended the event and shows a man pointing a fake gun at someone wearing a Trump mask and a Mexican costume. Donors paid a minimum of $250 to attend Sandoval’s golf outing in Winfield, Illinois, located just outside of Chicago.

The western burb used to be nice places to flee the Rat machine.  No more.  The infestation is complete.
“Here’s the truth. Life begins at conception. Government is too big. Our taxes are too high. And our car insurance is too expensive. President Trump is doing a great job. Facts matter more than feelings. The Second Amendment is self-explanatory. And as a doctor, I can assure you there are only two genders.”

A woman posted that on Facebook and the senator condemned it.  That is all he can do.
The picture makes no sense.  Pointing a gun at a  small caricature of Trump does not compute - it is stupid.  However, any picture of a gun connected to any politician is enough to set off a crazy person and we have many of them in the over 3 million people in this country.

We have seen two crazies in one week killing people using a gun.  That is going to happen again so we don't need guns and politicians in cartoons to encourage them to act.

A politician cannot control the actions of thousands/millions of supporters.  Any supporter can pay for ads and the politician can't do anything about that except to say the ad did not come from him/her.

Story:
One year in Texas, a group supporting a certain candidate, unknown to the candidate, sent out (to seniors) applications for a mail-in ballot, along with asking the voter to vote for this candidate.  I got one and knew the application was flawed, it was illegal, did not include required information.  The application would be dumped when a county got them.  I called the Secretary of State's office, Elections Division, and told them about these faulty applications.  They contacted every Texas county election administer to warn them if these applications came in, immediately send them back to the voter with a legal application.  The candidate was also told about these illegal applications, and he had no idea this happened. 

The moral of that story is, candidates cannot control what other entities do regarding his/her campaign for office.

My point being, the duffaces that took/posted the pics live in HIS district. Dupage Co. used to be a GOP stronghold.  It is not today.
