Hello Ms. Mendoza,
I am a dedicated Democrat and voter here in Chicago. I’m writing to you because I’m concerned about the negative ads that I’ve been watching on television. The Republicans insist that you have been receiving 2 paychecks, which I find very disturbing. Can you please let me know if this is true? And if it is not, can you explain what these ads are alluding to?
I’d very much appreciate hearing back from you!
Thank you for reaching out to me.
To answer your question, my opponent is falsely attacking me on my record because she can’t stand behind the ugly truth of her own. I have NEVER double dipped. This was a false allegation that former pathological liar and disgraced Governor Blagojevich started years ago. It was disproved then with official documentation and it continues to be a blatant lie today.
I have disproved it on multiple occasions during this campaign, yet my opponent continues spreading the lie in the hopes that the public will believe whatever they see in her negative ads. She can buy lots of ads telling lots of lies with the $5 million + she received from 2 of Governor Rauner’s billionaire friends, one of whom is on Donald Trump’s economic team. She has yet to denounce DT. It’s clear to me why.
Also, she just accepted another $1 MILLION directly from Governor Rauner yesterday. So, the one person she should be serving as an independent checks and balance to, just wrote her a check for $1 million dollars. It’s unprecedented and entirely unethical. You can expect to see more negative and slanderous lies about me on new ads this money will be paying for.
I don’t have billionaire friends who can entirely finance my campaign and allow me to buy up so much TV time spreading lies. I do have the hardest work ethic you’ll ever see in a public servant, and I’ll continue to rely on that to earn the people’s trust. I hope I can count on your vote.
Let me know if you have any other questions and have a great day.
