Subject: Electioneering at the Illinois State Board of Elections
I visited the Illinois State Board of Elections offices on Tuesday of this week. At that time I lodged a verbal complaint with Mr. Menzel.
In order to do ANY business with the Board in the Chicago office, one must stop at the Reception Desk.
At this desk, a ISBE employee is openly electioneering without any reproach from the Board. He is a supporter of Obama’s campaign and accordingly, wants to make a statement to everyone his desk greets. This is completely unacceptable. It is open electioneering at the State Board of Elections during voting.
Please have this photo removed today, and any others that display the intent to express support for a candidate and that is viewable by the public during election season.
Accordingly, make a Board HR policy that reflects this.
Please send me email confirmation this picture has been removed today.
