In addition, Mr. Lake, are you truly upset because I dare to comment on these pages or is your real problem that I dare suggest that Brian Woodworth would be a better candidate than Marcus Lewis. Mr. Woodworth after all has been able to bridge relationship with the African American community, he is a well qualified attorney and a Christian man a father and loyal husband and the man pays his bills! Were I you, I would pay close attention on the values of anyone I support for any office. Now, let me be quick to point out, that I am in no way suggesting that Marcus Lewis is not an honest man, a good Christian and I certainly won't dare say he does not pay his bills, because I don't know that he does not. I do know that Marus would be a better Congressman than Jesse Jr. if the charges against Jesse Jr. are proven, until then, I support Jr. and of the other candidates who ran for office in the 2nd, I support first, Brian Woodworth, then Lewis and then Anthony. Now, as my grandmother used to say, "Put that in your pipe and smoke it!"

"...if the charges against Jesse Jr. are proven...?" JJJr is will plead guilty to charges, there will be no trial to find him guilty. JJJr will go to jail, lose his House seat, etc. "Former U.S. Prosecutor... Plea Deal for Jackson Jr.," CBS2, Nov.9, 2012. http://cbsloc.al/SShDho I don't smoke. Joe Lake, Chicago

I was right. I told you the truth. I am worthy & ready to be the next congressman of the 2nd District. I am a honest man ready to give remedies for what ails our community. It time for a fresh Change. It's time for Marcus Lewis.

One day people will realize that most politicians are not in it to serve. It's self gain and monetary reward. They don't give a damn about us. I didn't vote for Jessie Jackson Jr. and if he were the only person on the ticket I would have written my dogs name instead. How can a person who has no morals or integrity in his OWN house, have morals and integrity when it comes to the Congressional House? I wouldn't vote republican because they do not have the interest of the people at heart, only big business and the right to force their religious beliefs on others. Republicans think that non whites just want a handout and don't want to work. You have people of ALL races on welfare and last count, there were more WHITE WOMEN on welfare than any other race. When I go grocery shopping white women pull out a LINK card to pay, are they just too lazy to work? Or are they just on it temporarily because they are out of work? I'm a Democrat and don't want to see people abusing the system, I don't want illegals to get preferential treatment but they do, illegals don't even have to prove legal staus to get healthcare or enroll in school! But I don't want to see every social program eliminated which will cause more suffering on top of the current suffering by voting republican. Yeah yeah, smaller government right? Republicans want to get right into your womb and flip you off when you need help buying formula or help paying for healthcare for the baby they forced you to have. We're screwed.

Marcus Lewis November 11, 2012 at 07:08 PM
Good Day 2nd District, Let us "Do The Right Thing" for a Change for our circumstances to improve. If you want positive change then support me in the soon coming 'Special Election' for the 2nd District Seat. I will stand for you and your family. I will fight for your share of resources to help you get off our backs and on to our feet. The status quo doesn't care or love us at all. As you just witnessed what they did when JJJ in 24 hours after the election betrayed 181,000 supporters in an instant. He and the status quo had this all planned months ago. Including Sandi Jackson knew the whole plan from the beginning. Enough of the deceit, the constant lying and scheming on us. They want the seat and we want the seat. We must have it! So now we all know and you have me as your champion for jobs, education grants and home foreclosures just to name a few. Support my candidacy for this seat. Let's reclaim our right to life, liberty and the pursuit to happiness. Get me on the ballot when the word of JJJ vacate the seat comes from the Gov. We can & We must win this seat. We know the truth now. Marcus Lewis
James Taylor November 11, 2012 at 07:55 PM
Well as for me I am not truly sure that the only person who can represent the 2nd District is a Democrat. I am considering another run for the post as when I look at the lack of accomplishments of the Democratic Party in Illinois I certain that the people want to improve their conditions. The black community in many of the towns in the district are some of the poorest in Illinois and most are represented by black Democrats. I as a Republican have demonstrated that I am able to relate to people of both parties. Over the years my efforts to improve the economic conditions in many of the black hamlets in the district demonstrate fully my desire to be open and fair minded, looking always to what is best for the people and not the party. Should I decide to take a second bite of the apple, I will promise that my campaign will focus on issues and not attacks on those who also seek he office.
NotBuyingIt November 11, 2012 at 09:13 PM
Forget it Marcus... You don't have a chance in hell... You are wholly unqualified to represent even yourself let alone the 2nd district. You garnered 13% of the vote in the election. The people that voted for you had NO idea who you really are and clearly only voted for you because your name was not JJJ... You are a self-absorbed charlatan who is running to line your pockets with taxpayer dollars. You have shown yourself to be a petty, small-minded buffoon and not worthy of holding public office anytime anywhere.

Not going to happen, Marcus!!! You have shown yourself to be wholly unqualified to hold office over and over again. The Patch is full of your rants and inane comments!! The policies you espouse are so fanciful that it's sad. You claim that you will bring jobs and money and education to the area, and yet you never explain how. You are pandering to a base that needs help, and you make foolish promises to get elected to line your own pockets with taxpayer money. You are very much like one of those television preachers that are decked out in many thousands of dollars worth of suits and jewelery preaching to their congregation made up of poor folks that paid for his clothes and jewelery through their donations. You are living in a fantasy world.

Fed UP, you write, "Republicans want to get right into your womb and flip you off when you need help buying formula or help paying for healthcare for the baby they forced you to have." WTH are you talking about here?? Your Democrat party has made it very clear that you are entitled to abort your children without any interference from Republicans!!! That's was a HUGE point that your Democrat party hammered over and over again!! War on Women, remember?? Feel free to continue having your abortions. Republicans don't feel that their tax dollars should fund said abortions due to moral reasons, but hey, you don't want that baby you just made, Republicans can't stop you. Abort away, Fed UP!!
Marcus Lewis November 12, 2012 at 03:08 PM
The time is right now for my candidacy. 38,733 voters thought so and believed as I do. Clearly, if you want real change to come to this blighted district run by crooks, thieves & sex addicts you MUST choose someone different... And that person whether you like me or not is Marcus Lewis.
Fed UP November 13, 2012 at 05:18 PM
Well notbuyingit, women don't want to have their rapist baby, it's just a fact. Sorry you don't feel that way. Basically my point was Republicans want to take away the freedom to choose, simple. I don't want interference from anyone when it comes to my body, if forced vasectomies were an issue I bet you would have a problem with it. Federal funds don't now and never have funded abortions they fund breast and cervical cancer screenings for women. The Hyde Amendment prohibits it. And we won't talk about republicans and morals, they are sorely lacking on both sides. There are a lot of areas that I don't want my tax dollars to support, such as a tuition free education and free healthcare for people who are here illegally. What I am going to abort is this conversation with you.Do a little research before you post a raving rant. You can reply, but it will just enforce the fact that you are skewed in your thinkingas the Patch is full of your rants and inane comments as well.
NotBuyingIt November 14, 2012 at 02:20 AM
Fed UP, The Hyde Amendment applies only to funds allocated by the annual appropriations bill for the Department of Health and Human Services. It primarily affects Medicaid. PPFA conducts roughly 300,000 abortions each year. By law, federal funding cannot be allocated for abortions, but it could be argued that allocating money to Planned Parenthood for the provision of other medical services "frees up" funds to be re-allocated for abortion. So Fed UP, in a strict sense my tax dollar may not DIRECTLY pay for your abortions, but I could argue that by funding Planned Parenthood's other endeavors, my money IS being used to facilitate you aborting your children. As for the women that don't want to "have their rapist baby", I'm not suggesting they do, and neither do Republicans in general. You are a hate-filled Democrat spewing shite about Repuclicans. Why don't you do a little research on being civil and having a civil discourse. It's people like you that poison the water and make it impossible to have dialogue... Enjoy your abortions

James Taylor November 14, 2012 at 03:29 AM
If in fact there is another election in the 2nd District, I plan to seek that office as a Republican. I believe that none of those seeking the office have been able to fully address the important issues facing the district and that once the voters are presented with facts and not a series of insults against the other candidates, my being a Republican won't be a primary issue.
Marcus Lewis November 14, 2012 at 07:49 PM
Hello 2nd District, and a special greeting to the 38,733 that voted for me, I thank you. The phrase for the day is: "GET SMART" VOTE FOR MARCUS LEWIS FOR CONGRESS APRIL 9TH, 2013 www.marcuslewisforcongress2012.org
