Mike Frerichs Involved In Another Scandal: This Time Involving Shady Voter Registration Practices

The news keeps piling on Democrat candidate for Illinois State Treasurer Mike Frerichs as today he's been roped into an emerging scandal involving questionable tactics involving voter registration in Champaign.

Mike's deputy decided it would be a good idea to get the Democrat Party apparatus to show up at Champaign Central High School to register - and 'put the arm on' - a bunch of High School Juniors and Seniors.

But..did the Frerichs team invite the Republican Party?  Nope.

The Champaign News Gazette has more in a piece they call:  Lesson Learned:
After a political tiff over voter registration at Champaign Central High School's registration day, Principal Joe Williams is altering plans for future registration efforts. 
"There will be no partisan politics involved," he said. 
Williams' comments come after a Democratic Party-organized registration table, complete with signs backing Ann Callis, the party's candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives, drew comments from the public. There was no Republican table present, raising suggestions of partisanship the school district wants to avoid. 
It turned out that it was school board President Laurie Bonnett, a member of the staff of local Democratic state Sen. Mike Frerichs, who delivered the black eye.
Emphasis, ours.

What a total shame.  Instead of introducing these young adults to government and their right to vote, Frerichs toadie introduces partisan politics right in their face.

She - clearly - learned from her mentor, Tax Hike Mike Frerichs, as he knows a thing or two about patronage and questionable tactics.
