That's an understatement.

The new chairman is Lee Roupas, GOP Committeeman from Palos Township. He had Gorman's backing.

Biggest receipt so far: has Season Tickets for the White Sox which cost $8,142 … that she shares with Odelson & Sterk (Todd Stroger’s Lawyers), Elgin’s Tim Schneider, and County Commissioner Pete Silvestri. Each, including the Commissioner, has a ¼ share in the season tickets at $2,714

Biggest contributors: Village Clerk David Maher, Deputy Clerk, Joe Lemargo, and attorneys Klein Thorpe and Jenkins, who do work in the village.

Officers: Paul M Aubin Treasurer, McLaughlin’s treasurer, and Patrick M Maher Chairman

McLaughlin gave him money ($500) as did some 19th Ward big shots like Dan Hynes ($1,500), as well as several unions close to McLaughlin.

So why did he create this campaign fund in March?
