Attack ads continue against Illinois Valley Democrat

Posted by wlpo on July 27, 2016

Already being portrayed as a robot taking orders from Illinois House Speaker Mike Madigan, State Representative Andy Skoog is now apparently a chess piece.

The latest mailing attacking the Democrat from La Salle shows an image of Madigan holding a chess piece with Skoog’s head on it. The mailer says Skoog is Madigan’s pawn to push a tax and spend agenda. Democratic senate candidate Chris Benson of Ottawa also is part of a chess piece on the back of the flier. She’s challenging Republican State Senator Sue Rezin.

The Illinois Republican Party put out the mailing. They’ve also sent out robocalls painting a picture of Skoog and Madigan hanging out on a beach together sipping cocktails.

When asked about the attack ads, Skoog has said his time is better spent listening to concerns of people in the 76th District.
