Hot off the wire comes this statement from Illinois Treasurer's candidate Mike Frerichs in response to the flood of news regarding how even core Democrats are 'jumping ship' from the Frerichs' campaign - the latest being former State Treasurer and Democrat Alexi Giannoulias who just yesterday stood up and endorsed Frerich's opponent Tom Cross for the job Giannoulias once held.
In one of the more bizarre releases/statements in recent Illinois political history, the latest statement sent from Mike Frerichs isn't text at all. Just a repeating .gif that demonstrates how he's feeling right now.
Here it is in all of it's glory:
We feel your pain, Mike Frerichs and campaign team. We really do.
Especially when we see you tantrum'ing and flailing about (like above) in your responses where you carelessly throw in things about inequality in Illinois and tea party references. Desperate times call for desperate measures?
