This goof spent $200 million out of pocket for a job that doesn’t even pay $200K.
After an expensive and hard-fought battle, Illinois voters were rejecting the progressive income tax amendment late Tuesday night. Voters said “no” to the change, 55% to 45% with 97.6% of precincts reporting, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
The campaign in favor of the amendment was expensive and largely funded by Gov. J.B. Pritzker himself. Pritzker donated $58 million to the Vote Yes for Fairness campaign between donations in June and December 2019, and then another $1.5 million on Oct. 28.
No other individual or group donated more than $1,500.
This was a one man show to shaft Illinois taxpayers and he personally spent almost $60 million to support it. That means Fatass “donated” around 40,000 TIMES as much as the next highest contributor did.
That $60 million could have gone long way toward paying off Illinois’ monstrous debt – almost three-hundredths-of-one-percent….oh….wait….that’s not much help at all, demonstrating exactly how deep the shithole that Madigroin and company have dug for residents.
