“Dump Towne” trailer creating social media buzz

Posted by wlpo on August 29, 2016

During campaign season, is there a line that can’t be crossed? A trailer showing up at public events in the Illinois Valley is getting plenty of attention.

One of the floats in this weekend’s Tonica Fest parade featured a trailer and the message to “Dump Towne,” referring to La Salle County State’s Attorney Brian Towne. What has folks talking about the trailer is that there is also a message on the trailer talking about Towne’s married life and saying that “adultery is a crime in Illinois.”

Towne’s opponent, Republican Karen Donnelly reacted to the trailer saying on Facebook that her campaign is not affiliated with whoever is behind the travelling anti-Towne billboard. She goes on to say that she doesn’t support or condone such negative campaign tactics.
