D-2 ELECTION DISCLOSURES REVEAL TRUTH ABOUT TOPINKA-DODGE SMEAR CAMPAIGN AGAINST KELLY

Roeser, Dodge “Paid” Bloggers Tied to Attacks on Kelly’s Deceased Dad

 (CHICAGO) – A series of election disclosures raise serious questions about the campaign of Jim Dodge and his direct involvement in the smear campaign against Republican comptroller candidate William J. Kelly . Recent political D-2 disclosures reveal:

A $7500 fee to political consultant Joe Novak from Citizens for Jim Dodge. Novak, whose bad reputation for dirty tricks earned him the nickname “Low Blow Joe,” has worked for Walter Mondale and Mayor Richard M. Daley.

A $5,000 contribution from Jack Roeser’s Renaissance PAC to Committee to Elect Paul Mitchell. Mitchell’s campaign manager, Lynn Thomas, pens a blog that has been deeply involved in the smear campaign against Kelly’s campaign.

Two in-kind contributions of $500 each from Jack Roeser’s Renaissance PAC to Citizens for Jim Dodge for video production work. Dodge and his agents have been deceptively re-editing video from Kelly’s Emmy award-winning TV series in attack ad spots with no disclaimer.

In November 2009, Jack Roeser and his Champion News website had a very public battle with Kelly and issued false reports that Kelly was exiting the comptroller’s race. For months, Kelly has condemned his opponents who have been spinning rumors and false information. “This is not a clean break from the past. This is the Topinka-Dodge smear campaign that does not have any future in the Illinois Republican party. February 2nd is an important day for reform and will determine what kind of Republican Party we will have. It is time for true conservatives, true Republicans, and true Tea Party activists to call on Pat Brady to denounce the smears and the lies.  If Pat Brady cannot denounce this – this raises serious questions about what kind of Republican Party we hope to have in November and beyond,” says Kelly.

Most recently, a blog penned by Lynn Thomas, whose campaign received the $5,000 contribution, said that she and others were investigating Kelly’s deceased father who was a Chicago public school principal, questioning how he made his living: “That is something that is being further investigated – it doesn’t add up that somebody even a Principal in Chicago’s school system who makes a hundred or so grand a year would have enough money to leave a TRUST…”

“Jim Dodge, Judy Baar Topinka, and their agents are beneath contempt for “investigating” my deceased father, who was a very, very good man. False information is coming out of Jim Dodge’s own website, their paid bloggers, and is being distributed by smear merchants in Carpentersville, Illinois. It is defamatory, it is not protected under the law, and we will be taking legal action this week,” says Kelly.

See the web documentary that the Rockford Tea Party gave a standing ovation! “See “A Conservative in Chicago” – parts 1 and 2:

  1. A $5,000 contribution from Jack Roeser’s Renaissance PAC to Committee to Elect Paul Mitchell. Mitchell’s campaign manager, Lynn Thomas, pens a blog that has been deeply involved in the smear campaign against Kelly’s campaign.

    Truth time, Bill!

    Lynn Thomas is a part-time, unpaid volunteer for my campaign. She has been given the title “campaign manager,” but in fact, I run my campaign myself. She has not been paid any amount by me for anything, and is in fact a contributor to my campaign. She didn’t see a dime of the money my campaign received from RRP-PAC.

    If you have a problem with me, Bill, talk to me.

    1. I cut your comment in half only because it was too long. But…the fact remains that Thomas received a quid pro quo to turn on me all of a sudden. That is reflected in the D-2s. The day the check to you hit the bank was the day she did an about face and started attacking me and private people on my staff. And her about face is now very wierd and obssessive and stalkeresque against me. If you were the right kind of candidate, you would have shown that you didn’t approve of such odd behavior and dismissed her immediately. She didn’t reflect well on you.
