The "Public Affairs," show with Adam Andrzejewski [R-Hinsdale] was taped on May 17, 2009
Adam Andrzejewski [watch here], 39, made a fair amount of money in a decade, or so, business career. He says his family net worth is in the 10 to 20 million dollar range. Some might think that fact, alone, if true, could make him a credible candidate, especially if he will spend a good chunk of his wealth on getting elected. On the other hand, does he know such details as the actual number of Democrats and Republicans in the State House and State Senate, and does it matter- if he doesn't? Turn on and Tune in tonight to see those items, how to fix the state deficit, education, abortion, guns and much, much more discussed. For example, Andrzejewski tells us he has now turned his attention to making sure when it comes to government expenditures "every dime [is] on line."

Talking about dimes, Adam could end up competing in the Primary against, among others, Ron Gidwitz, whose family business, Helene Curtis, was sold years ago for two hundred million dollars. How much of that went to Ron? We don't know-- Ron, when asked, just reminded this journalist that he "has a large family." Of course, Gidwitz spent a chunk of his net worth, when he came in fourth, with 10% of the vote, in essentially a four-candidate Republican Guv primary in 2006.

Of course, moderate Judy Baar Topinka edged out conservative Jim Oberweis in that primary and Topinka went on to lose big-time to Democrat Gov. Rod Blagojevich. Blago went on to get arrested, impeached, indicted and is now awaiting trial as his wife awaits an appearance on a "reality," TV show. Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Pat Quinn replaced Blago and can't seem to get Speaker Madigan to help him pass his 50% income tax increase. And, Adam Andrzewejski, Ron Gidwitz, Dan Proft [Watch here], Sen. Matt Murphy [Watch here] and Sen. Bill Brady, all actual or potential candidates for the gubernatorial nomination in the Republican Primary and all guests on "Public Affairs,", oppose Gov. Quinn's proposed income tax increase.

What is real news, though, is that every Republican State Senator (22) and every Republican State House member (48) voted against the Rev. and Senator Meeks proposed 67% income tax increase, which passed the Senate, but not the House, this past weekend. Further, conservative Paul Caprio complemented moderate House Republican leader Tom Cross last night on Tom Roeser's Political Shoot-out radio show for keeping the Republican state Reps. united against an income tax increase. Now, that's really news.
