Aaron Goldstein, Illinois AG candidate robbed

| January 13, 2018 | 32 Comments

Mick sends us a link to Fox News which reports that Aaron Goldstein, a candidate for Attorney General of Illinois was robbed during a campaign photo shoot;

The Chicago Tribune reported that Aaron Goldstein, 42, and members of his campaign team were approached by three men in their early 20s. One of the men had a handgun and demanded Goldstein and the campaign aides turn over the camera equipment and other personal belongings, including their cell phones, which they did.

According to the Tribune, law enforcement sources confirmed that they had no one in custody and did not release a description of the suspects.

Goldstein’s campaign manager Robert Murphy, who was not with the candidate at the time, explained that he was taking promotional campaign photos with an “in-the-neighborhood kind of” message, according to the Tribune. The incident took place in Albany Park.

I guess no one is immune to crime in Chicago.

    “Let’s go into the hood for a photo op to show the people we’re down.”

    “Great idea!”

    And this is how today’s Democrat becomes tomorrow’s Republican.

    If they pulled that stunt on Arkansas’ Attorney General Leslie Rutledge, she would have used her Glock to make them DOT.

    Mayor Deadfish’s boy got mugged near his home IIRC.

  6. AW1Ed says:

    The irony. I’m sure the gentleman with the handgun submitted to a background check at the time of purchase and had his weapon registered with the Illinois state police.

    ” … and did not release a description of the suspects.”

    Really? Afraid to alienate potential voters. That’s it, kiss ass so as not to offend anyone. What a pile. Maybe they figure WTF good would it do.

    That gun control is really curtailing crime in Shitcago, ain’t it?

  9. HMCS(FMF) ret says:

    How’s that Chi-town style gun control workin’ for you, Goldstein?

    You know his answer will be more gun control…
    these people would eat a pile of shit if a vote machine was rigged to it….

    Enjoy munching on your shit sandwich there boy, I’m sure the hood rats will enjoy your fancy cell phone. Next time, make sure you don’t go in the hood after dark. You can tell it’s dark when all you see are eyeballs and teeth!

    AWW GEE WHIZ, at least the goblins were safe thanks to Illinois Gun Control Laws!!

    You know what the definition of a Liberal is? He’s a Conservative that just hasn’t been mugged yet.

  14. RM3(SS) says:

    A direct quote from the local paper on his views on guns “He will undertake unique, progressive solutions to the spread of gun violence, including going after gun manufacturers and the NRA whose sole vested interest is to sell more guns.”

    Bet he demands some protection from people with guns after this. Yet another (D) hypocrite.

    Just another day in *hitcago.

    I can hear Sinatra now: “Bet your bottom dollar you’ll loose the blues in *hitcago.” And your cameras, cell phones, money, credit cards, life, whatever.

    Sounds like he’s one of me own with a name like Goldstein, but he’s still a real shit bird anyway.
