4 artcles on her, one on him and one supposedly neutral. More great balanced reporting by Patch. Is this Sadin her campaign manager?????????? He cant seem to find analysis of her views and actions. More perpetual adoration.

Mr. Wolf is not an elected official. It's more like ---- 1 article on candidate Schakowsky's positions 3 articles about a Member of Congress 1 neutral article 1 article on candidate Wolf's positions .......I don't suppose you complain about all the news that Joe Walsh generates related to his seat in Congress do you? When did conservatives turn into whiney little crybabies?

As the Republican candidate for the House of Representatives in the 9th district the readers must decide who is or is not getting adequate coverage regarding their background and political stances. However, I challenge anyone in the 9th district to point out where there is adequate coverage of the redistricting that has taken place and has changed the complexity of the 9th District. There are well over 100,000 new voters who are more conservative than the majority of the past 9th District voters. The media has certainly blown it here. The new areas in the district include parts or all of Arlington Heights (where I live), Mt. Prospect, Prospect Heights, Wheeling, Glenview, Northbrook, Northfield, Winnetka, Wilmette, Glencoe, Rolling Meadows and Palatine. With this more conservative vote Tim Wolfe will be your next Congressman if people vote their conscience not their party.

Another lefty crybaby dig about Joe Walsh. Typical. Any comments about Schakowsky signing a false IRS form and claiming innocence? Any comment about the democratic Evanston judge who felt the Evanston democrat husband was only trying to help people by faking the info? Ant comment about her husband making money on the deal? What DO you put in those pizzas? I can imagine what your brownies are like.
