Dear Sir or Madam:

While I fully understand the Reader is not responsible for the political ads it runs, I must comment on the placement November 3 by the so-called Independent Voters of Illinois-Independent Precinct Organization [Section 1].

Of 80 endorsements for political office, 72 went to Democrats, 8 to Republicans, and 2 to Greens. No Republican or Green was endorsed for major office. Of 42 judges standing for retention, only one received a “no” vote.

Of whom are these “independents” independent?

John F. Hogan
