The Comeback Kid

Is there any better way to conduct a rehabilitation tour than to rehash over one's rehab? Your LakeCountyEye thinks not.

Ex-Lake County Board Chair Aaron Lawlor is back, and TEDx has him:

Your LakeCountyEye hasn't watched the video, so will seek the opinion of someone who should have -- but hasn't either:
Mark Shaw, chairman of the Lake County Republican Central Committee and co-chairman of the Illinois Republican Party, said he hadn't seen the video, but was "disappointed" by Lawlor's view of the party when parts of Lawlor's statements were read to him. Shaw called Lawlor's statements a "deflection" from taking personal responsibility and said the county party had always supported Lawlor, even after he came out as gay in 2017. "I don't know why he'd feel like he was alone," Shaw said. "The suburbs tend to be more inclusive than some of the rural areas. And, my God, he was chairman of our board. If we felt he wasn't welcome in our party, how did he rise to that position?"
Lawlor re-emerges after rehab stint and quitting politics
Note to Ops: Back in the day, a Democrat who wanted to get elected in Lake County had to run as a Republican. Those days are now officially over.

Just sayin!
