5.11.02

A month or so ago, Anthony "Tony" Lopez-Cisneros contacted me, asking if I would join his House of Representatives campaign in Illinois' 4th district. He found me because of a commentary I wrote a while back criticizing Bill Clinton for pardoning several Puerto Rican terrorists. Tony didn't seem like the sharpest knife in the drawer, since if he read a couple more of my commentaries he'd have noticed my political views tend to be pretty much the inverse of his own. And if he dug a little deeper he'd find that I didn't live in Illinois. I didn't reply, but he put me on his campaign mailing list, so I received periodic updates as well as inexplicable blank emails.

Alas, with 88% of precincts reporting, it looks like Democrat Luis Gutierrez has squashed poor Tony, 79%-16%. At least he can say he beat out the Libertarian.
