Â Site to Offer Updates, Summaries and Links to Coverage
Chicago, ILÂ â€“ The Illinois Republican PartyÂ has launched a comprehensive web site, DismissQuinn.com,Â to show voters why Pat Quinn should be â€œdismissedâ€ as governor this fall. The â€œDismiss Quinnâ€ title refers to comments from the late Chicago Mayor Harold Washington. â€œPat Quinn is a totally and completely undisciplined individual,â€ Washington said when he fired Quinn as his Revenue Director. â€œHe was dismissed, he should have been dismissed. [His appointment was] my greatest mistake in government.â€
â€œDismiss Quinnâ€ follows on the successful â€œBlago Filesâ€ site that tracked the trial of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. â€œDismiss Quinnâ€ will be updated regularly with quotes, news stories, videos and links to campaign coverage between now and Election Day.
â€œVoters have to understand the desperate need for leadership right now in Springfield,â€ said Illinois Republican Party Chairman Pat Brady. â€œPat Quinn has shown he is incapable of turning our state around and that weâ€™ll simply get higher taxes and more borrowing under another four years of Quinn. Thatâ€™s just unacceptable.â€
The web site will put the spotlight on Quinnâ€™s mistakes, flip-flops, bungling and overall poor management of the state along with his pledge to raise the state income tax. â€œWe also want to make it clear that Pat Quinn was Rod Blagojevichâ€™s running mate, not once but twice and never spoke out against him. In fact, he said just the opposite,â€ Brady continued. The governorâ€™s office and both houses of the Legislature are controlled by the Democrats.
The new web site can be viewed at DismissQuinn.com. Visitors will be able to sign up for regular email updates and other announcements.
