Bob Grogan: The (Fill in the Blank) of 2014?

Posted by: The Ghost of Babe Woodyard

DuPage County Auditor Bob Grogan’s inability to spell and fact check is legendary here at the Truth Team. The guy provides nearly endless material for a site that is almost exclusively dedicated to lampooning politicians. So thanks again, Bob.

But Bob Grogan got me thinking, who can I even compare him to when I tell all my friends how goofy he is?

Have we ever seen a candidate who brags about his credentials as much as Bob Grogan? I don’t think so, I really can’t think of anyone who would brag so much about his college degree. Bob you are like 50 years old, get over it ok. My nephew who just graduated from a real Big 10 school with a CPA doesn’t talk about his degrees as much as you do. Let it go, it was 30 years ago.

How about a candidate who can’t fact check? For as much credit as Bob gives himself for being a fact checker and auditor he is borderline incapable of doing it. Busting on the Daily Herald for endorsing Gore??? Come on Bob, if you had asked I would have Googled it for you.

Spelling? Ugh, his spelling problems have caused much joy here at the Truth Team.  But seriously, if he is *that* bad with letters, we have to wonder: is he any good with numbers?

What about a candidate using accounting tricks to show "capacity"? That is a new one on me, extra pathetic points scored on that move Bob.

So it begs the question: who does Bob Grogan remind you of as a candidate? 

I have a few thoughts but nothing matches up 100%. So I am calling on you Truth Teamers, send us your thoughts on who Bob Grogan reminds you of in Illinois politics, maybe even outside of Illinois politics because it seems like they broke the mold with this guy. 

 Best suggestion gets a free photoshop of Bob.
