An Associated Press report claiming the challenge to Illinois House incumbents who voted for marriage redefinition has fizzled is utterly misleading.
According to our information, eight of the nine Chicago Democrats challenging Democratic incumbents would have voted no or present on SB 10, the same-sex marriage legislation sponsored by homosexual state Rep. Greg Harris, D-Chicago.
Not one, not two, not three, but eight pro-marriage Chicago Democrats are challenging Democratic incumbents in the March 18 primary election.
Marriage redefinition doesn't have the support the dominant media want you to believe it does. It is evident in the fact that Speaker Michael Madigan, D-Chicago, had to twist arms to get SB 10 to pass in his chamber and by the fact that a good number of Chicago Democrats are running as pro-marriage Democrats.
It all adds up to anything but a “fizzle.”
