Vote to Take Out Kilbride, PI Bar’s Darling.
Illinois Chief Justice Thomas Kilbride’s 10-year term is up and he’s seeking retention. In this state where judges are elected, voters are asked whether or not they should be retained (there’s no opposition candidate to vote for; just vote him up or down). I say vote him down with enthusiasm.. He’s the darling of personal injury lawyers and one principal reason why doctors and specialists are fleeing Illinois and big unions.
Kilbride joined with other Dems on the Court to overturn a state law that placed monetary caps on damages awarded in medical malpractice cases. He’s the liberals’ darling—having backed McGovern for president in 1972…went to California to help some of the most radical labor forces in U.S. history…has received $650,000 from Mike Madigan in campaign cash which added to the total he’s already pocketed from the Dems is $1,250.00…plus $250,000 from the Illinois Federation of Teachers, $90,000 from the Illinois Education Association PAC. Armed with bundles of PI lawyer cash, he’s an automatic vote to screw the medical profession and is notoriously soft on criminals.
This Nov. 2 make it a clean sweep. No Illinois Supreme Court Justice has ever been voted off the Court—a great incentive to make Illinois history. Be the first on your block to vote “no” on retaining Kilbride. No I’m not getting paid to write this. As one who’s benefited from good doctors, I just want `em to stick around Illinois—not be driven out by such as Kilbride.
