John Shimkus Souvenirs
U.S. House candidate Tim Bagwell, PhD (D-Olney), addressed the audience at the Richland County Democratic Committee's pork-loin dinner and silent auction at Olney Veterans of Foreign Wars. It provided the opportunity to remind IL-19 voters about some lesser-known facts regarding their ever-obsequious John Shimkus (R-Collinsville):
- He voted against including a bittering agent in antifreeze to prevent animals from drinking it.
- He voted against pay equality for women.
- He refused to request a federal investigation in the dubious Save A Life Foundation.
The people deserve someone representing them who actually works for them. Dr. Bagwell has the resume and has proven that he can do the job.
