David Krupa’s candidacy has been a fascinating thing to watch. Read the full backstory here.

‘It will open a lot of eyes’: College politician sues opponent for election fraud

DePaul University freshman and political candidate David Krupa publicly announced on Monday that he is filing a federal lawsuit against his opponent, Marty Quinn, as well as Illinois Speaker of the House Mike Madigan, the campaign committee Citizens for Marty Quinn, and the 13th Ward Democratic Organization, for conspiracy and fraud against his campaign.

The College Fix previously reported on the alleged suspicious and possibly criminal activities of pro-Quinn partisans during the campaign. Krupa had originally collected around 1,700 signatures to get his name on the ballot. Following that, “an organized crew…walked door to door in the 13th Ward and turned in 2,796 affidavits from residents asking that their signatures for Krupa be revoked,” The Chicago Tribune reported at the time.

In addition to having collected over 1,000 more signatures than Krupa himself had obtained, only 187 of the signatures matched those from Krupa’s original effort.

“It is appalling that in America, in OUR city, election fraud of this magnitude can be carried out by our State Speaker and Alderman. Quinn is a crook, and his actions have tainted our neighborhoods, and branded himself in the ward as ‘Criminal Marty Quinn,’” Krupa told the audience at a press conference yesterday.

“We have proven to the 13th ward, Chicago, and people all over the state that our campaign is a movement for change. We can beat the Chicago Machine and introduce a New Chicago Way: a City Hall that people can trust and believe in,” Krupa said.

In an interview with The College Fix at the press conference, Krupa expressed confidence that the lawsuit would bear fruit.

Hope this kid has life insurance. And bodyguards. And a defense fund. Because the Chicago Way is serious hardball.

I thought election fraud is a way of life in Chicago. In fact, didn’t Richard J. Daley (together with Huey Long in Louisiana) invent the “dead vote”, where people are so enthusiastic that they climb out of their graves to vote? I wonder how far Krupa will have to go to find a judge who isn’t on the payroll of the Chicago Machine.

I remember in the ’60s and ’70s in the south, campaigns hired people to ride around on buses on election day. At each polling place they were given the name they were supposed to vote for, generally someone who was dead or incarcerated. The “dead vote” was crucial in many close elections. That’s why some politicians are opposed to any voter ID laws. That would effectively close off the “dead vote.”

He’s not much better (self-righteous Obama zombie type that thinks Obama wasn’t part of the mess he is fighting), but it’s fun to watch these groups eat each other. I have a feeling I know which one wins.
