Politicians Get Hands Dirty for Good Reason

Schneider cleans the beach while Dold takes staff to work in the woods.

Some people like to enjoy a day at the beach while others head to the woods for recreation. Sometimes they go there to make the world a better place.

Brad Schneider of Deerfield, route: {:controller=>"articles", :action=>"show", :id=>"democrats-jerusalem-platform-plank-unifies-dold-schneider"} --> was cleaning up the beach Saturday. He is the Democratic candidate challenging

@Chris I've never usually read Breitbart, but it came up in a google search. It has evidence to support its claim. Did you read it? Or did you look at the label and say to yourself, "Breitbart=Conservative=I'm not gonna read this"

Brilliant research: A guy who was an independent consultant (one-man operation), now a full-time candidate didn't have any income from the business from which he retired. He isn't running on the success=$$$$$$$$ platform that Romney is. His business success was sufficient for him to support his family, raise his kids, and live comfortably in order to then have the opportunity to give back in the form of public service. Money doesn't equal success and that is a signature problem of the current paradigm of Republicanism. Why doesn't Breitbart highlight the finances of Mr. Joe Walsh? Much more entertaining, I'll bet.

"Breitbart? Really? Funny how that's the only source of that biased viewpoint." Straight from the horse's mouth: Here's Schneider's FEC filing showing zero income from those three business for the last 2.5 years. http://www.docstoc.com/docs/130559223/IL-10-Schneider-2012-1

Dold is a lawmaker (congressman) and a lawbreaker (labor laws). In a sane world such a man would be in prison not on the ballot but we live in the world of the fake.

Mr. Schneider isn't running as a "retired person". He's running as a "successful business consultant" and wants to bring his "experience" to Washington. Where's the success? Where are the clients? His company didn't even have an office or a phone number.
