Funny Pages

when speed is of the essence Note to Ops: running for political office is a lot like filing for bankruptcy. Always read the fine print before signing anything. One local candidate apparently did not. The Daily Herald said ...
A Barrington village board candidate is accusing village officials of election tampering for providing him with nominating petitions that contained an error. Michael Kozel, a Barrington resident who ran unsuccessfully for village president two years ago as a write-in candidate, said he collected more than 160 signatures to run for village trustee in the April election but might have to do it again because the forms include the date of the 2013 election.
Barrington gave village board candidate incorrect nominating forms
The banks accept pre-dated checks -- a pre-dated nominating petition should be just a good? Haha.

What to do? In a predicament like this, your LakeCountyEye advises to obtain a new, corrected nominating petition. Then gather one or two signatures. Notarize that single petition sheet and file for office with it. And then dare your opponent to challenge the petition.

That's all your LakeCountyEye has. Move along.
