Up first:

Women in the 6th Congressional District need to see and read that Sean Casten is still saying he is proud of his votes for Anti-Choice Republicans like George H.W. Bush while millions of Americans face losing access to safe and legal abortions. In October 2019 (50:04), Sean Casten said, “I voted for George H.W. Bush, I voted for Bob Dole, I don’t think my morals have changed.” Bush nominated Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court, and Justice Thomas is part of the conservative majority that is poised to strike down Roe v Wade and take away this fundamental right from millions of women. We need a Congresswoman who has never wavered — Marie Newman.

Coming Up:

From February 2, 2022 in Roll Call, Sean Casten: “I care about climate, and I actually thought the Republicans in the Reagan and first Bush White House did some of the best climate policies ever — “ even though President Reagan famously de-regulated price controls on gasoline and oil, which paved the way for Big Oil to continue price gouging as we see today. And Casten won’t sign on to the Big Oil Windfall Tax Profits Act, which would hold Big Oil accountable and end price gouging.

Democratic Primary voters, especially in Cook County, need to know that Sean Casten is a hypocrite when it comes to climate issues. He’s taken tens of thousands of dollars in donations from fossil fuel companies including BP and Chevron and he owned a coal-fired power plant. He also was part-owner of a company that has been cited 5 times in the last 5 years for violating the Clean Water Act for dumping lead and solid waste.

Up next:

Democratic Primary voters, especially in Cook County, need to know that Casten bilked investors in his “failed (fossil fuel) energy company.” He was sued by his investors for “baseless accounting manipulations,” “inflated salaries,” and “irresponsible spending.” In the end, some investors lost everything, including their retirement savings, while Casten and his family walked away with millions, which he used to buy a seat in Congress.
