Challenge to Illinois’ Campaign Finance Law

Jim Anderson, IRN

CHICAGO, Ill. (IRN) – An Illinois interest group is suing to invalidate part of the state’s campaign finance law.

Personal PAC, an abortion rights group that supports candidates favorable to its cause, says two provisions of Illinois’ first-ever law limiting campaign contributions are unconstitutional: The $10,000 limit on donations an individual can give to a political action committee, and the proscription against any person operating more than one political action committee.

The Illinois law was enacted in 2009.

Gov. Pat Quinn says he hasn’t seen the lawsuit, but he hopes the limits are maintained. “We have to have reasonable, I think, limits and safeguards, but we have to look at what the current (Personal PAC) lawsuit says in Illinois. We’ll examine that and decide from there,” he said.

Personal PAC filed its suit in federal court in Chicago, asserting its rights under the U.S. Supreme Court decision Citizens United. Personal PAC believes it missed out on tens of thousands of dollars in contributions it could have collected but didn’t, thanks to the Illinois law.

The Personal PAC lawsuit is Personal PAC vs. McGuffage.

    FETUS IS NOT A BABY (GOOGLE THE HUMAN DEVELOPMENT CHART), but a parasite because the classification of the biological relationship that is based on the behavior one organism (fetus) and how it relates to the woman’s body.

    as a zygote, it invaded the woman’s uterus using its TROPHOBLAST cells, hijacked her immune system by using NEUROKININ B and HCG— so her body doesn’t kill it, steals her nutrients to survive, and causes her harm or potential death.

    wikipedia org/wiki/Trophoblast

    “The placenta functions as an immunological barrier between the mother and the fetus, creating an immunologically privileged site. For this purpose, it uses several mechanisms:
    It secretes Neurokinin B containing phosphocholine molecules. This is the same mechanism used by parasitic nematodes to avoid detection by the immune system of their host.[2]”
    wikipedia org/wiki/Immune_tolerance_in_pregnancy

    ” Due to its highly-negative charge, hCG may repel the immune cells of the mother, protecting the fetus during the first trimester. It has also been hypothesized that hCG may be a placental link for the development of local maternal immunotolerance.”

    “It is also possible for a symbiotic relationship to exist between two organisms of the same species.”

    the bible supported abortion, that was done by a priest, in god’s name, in his holly temple!
    the 1984 NIV footnote of numbers 5:11-31 explained what “to thy thigh to rot, they belly to swell” meant: numbers 5:21 “or causes you to have a miscarrying womb and barrenness” to CAUSE a miscarrying womb IS an abortion.

    ‘Ephraim, as I saw Tyre, is planted in a pleasant place; but Ephraim shall bring forth his children to the murderer.” Give them, O LORD — what wilt Thou give? Give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts…Ephraim is smitten, their root is dried up, they shall bear no fruit; yea, though they bring forth, yet will I slay even the beloved fruit of their womb.’

    HOSEA 9-16
