Jay Grodner Censured for Vote Fraud Before Allegedly Keying Marine's Car

Local Democratic lawyer Jay Grodner who allegedly keyed the car of a deploying Marine here in Chicago last month was censured by the Illinois Supreme Court in 1984 for "roundtabling" signatures for electoral petitions. TA of Team America's Tenth District Blog and his mystery sleuths have seen this activity before. They discovered that the head of the Lake County Democrats, Terry Link had done the same thing on his petitions. Mr. Grodner's vote fraud incedent came as a young State's Attorney working to promote a ballot question to help former Republican Governor James Thompson. The Illinois State Supreme Court described local attorney Jay Grodner's actions as "roundtabling" and that "this term connotes a group of people gathered at a table who circulate petitions to one another. Each person signs a name obtained from a phonebook or voter registration list and then passes the petition on to the person sitting next to him, who does the same."

Big Hat Tip: to Bill Hennessy, a St. Louis blogger and technologist whose post was linked to earlier.

Don't know about his politics now. He was a Republican when he committed the roundtabling that got him censured. Assistant tothe Kane County State's Attorney who was pushing an advisory tax referendum that Grodner roundtabled.

Correction to the above comment, he was working for a State's Atty. who wanted to help a Republican Governor. I am willing to bet that he is now (and was on Dec 1) a Democrat. Let's face it, this is the type of ignorant crap that any reasonable observer would have to admit is part and parcel for the modern Democratic Party. I see it nearly every day.
