A Request: Congressional Investigation of the Save-A-Life Foundation

At a Wednesday event, Tim Bagwell, PhD, will share news about his formal request for a governmental investigation of the Save-A-Life Foundation. One is currently underway.

U.S. House candidate Tim Bagwell, PhD (D-Olney), will hold a press conference at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, September 29,2010. He will conduct it in the Blue Room of the Illinois State Capital.

The purpose for the news conference is issues of Congressional oversight of the Save-A-Life-Foundation (SALF). The organization was a high-profile Chicago area non-profit. Since 2006, it has been the subject of numerous media exposes:

Rep. John Shimkus (R-Collinsville) has taken credit for arranging millions of federal taxpayer dollars to fund SALF. At the upcoming press conference, Dr. Bagwell will ask Congressman Shimkus to initiate a federal investigation to determine if those millions – along with millions in Illinois state funds awarded to SALF - were improperly administered.

This should be good.

Bring popcorn!

Local Fundraiser for Sheila Simon

Madison County residents have planned a fundraiser for Shiela Simon, Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor. The event is Sunday, September 19, 2010, from 2:00 3:30 P.M. at the Historic Carney House in Troy. Food will be light fare with Illinois Wines. Dress is smart casual attire.

The event is being held about seven miles from the Plummer Estate, the home of Sheila's opponent. There is an unfortunate wave of hometown loyalty to Jason that is growing here. That needs to stop. Please join them and have some fun. They are collecting donations at the event.

After hearing the news from the media all during Labor Day weekend, Democrats need to unite! After the VIP event, there will be a public event with hot dogs, soda, and Blue grass music from Sheila and her band.

For questions, call Regina Hendrickson at (618) 667-1364 or or Pamella Gronemeyer at (618) 973-3584 or
