Photo Finished

Say Cheese ...Two guesses as to which sitting Lake County Congressman just introduced a Voter ID Bill to Congress:
Today Congressman Joe Walsh (IL-8) introduced the Federal Elections Integrity Act, which requires voters to present a government-issued photo ID to vote in federal elections.
Rep. Walsh: Stop Voter Fraud
The same Joe Walsh who said ...
"The best government is that which governs least." In Washington today, however, the government is trying to regulate, control, or tax every aspect of our lives.
Government Spending
is now sponsoring a bill that will require you to produce your papers for a government bureaucrat before you are permitted to vote. Haha, too funny.

One person who should have no trouble producing photo identification is Suzi Schmidt. Operatives ought to recognize State Senator Schmidt, her mugshot was in all the papers last week. Your LakeCountyEye will spare everyone the ugly details. Schmidt, goes the consensus at the CapitolFaxBlog, should at a minimum seek counselling ...
Legislators behaving badly
Which, in your LakeCountyEye's opinion, is pious blather typical of the liberal media. Your LakeCountyEye recalls when, back in the day, Schmidt ruled the Lake County board for twenty years. One does not rise to the top by being a shrinking violet. If every hard-driving Type-A personality was required to seek counselling there would be no one left to run the government with an iron fist. Schmidt would be well-advised to forgo the counselling and pursue the next phase of her career, conducting seminars for the political grasshoppers on how it is done. Your LakeCountyEye would pay money to see that!

And while you are looking at that mugshot of Suzi Schmidt, take note of where you see it: in the Chicago Tribune and the Daily Herald and the Chicago Sun-Times and in all the rest of the lamestream media.

And then take note of where you do not see Suzi Schmidt's mugshot: in those media outlets where conservative values outshine crass sensationalism. For instance, in the true conservative blogs like TeamAmerica10th and the McHenryCountyBlog and your very own LakeCountyEye.

Dear Eye,

As a Lake County Centrist, what should we do to get balance in this county? With the Tea Baggers (Walsh), the Crazies (Schmitt, etc, etc...), the Flip Flopper (Dold) and the State's Attorney's office killing folks for misdemeanors and jailing innocents, I just can't figure out how to split my ticket.... It's enough to make a centrist turn sky blue! If I was a Lake County GOPer, I'd be too embarrassed to run. Is that what happened to Turrelli?
