Quick Hits Supplemental – Now We’re Running Down Candidates?

Apparently unhappy with last night’s election results, Schaumburg Township Republican precinct committeeman, Mark Cramer, drove over to 44th District State Rep Fred Crespo’s victory party at Garsillo’s Italian Bar and Grill on Golf Road in Hoffman Estates, waited for him in the parking lot, and, when he appeared, purposely ran him down with his vehicle.

Thankfully, Crespo suffered only minor injuries, and after pressing charges, he continued on to enjoy the evening’s festivities.

Is this really what we’ve come to? Some of last night’s election results really flummoxed me, but I never once considered running someone over with my Ford Ranger because of them. And whatever charge Mr. Cramer will soon be facing certainly won’t be small potatoes.

And BTW, my source for this story was a staunch Republican elected official who’s bothered by this scenario as much or even more than I am.

C’mon people! Let’s all take a step back, a deep breath, and remember that the political pendulum never stays in one place for too long.

 

11/8/28 Update! Sources are now telling me that Cramer merely “bumped” Crespo while shouting “Fuck you Fred Crespo,” and this somehow happened right in front of the Hoffman Estates Police Department.

Also, I’ve learned that Mark Cramer hasn’t been a Schaumburg precinct committeeman since January of 2018. I appreciate the folks that corrected me.

I have passed the story along to the Daily Herald who are much more suited to cover this kind of simple story than I am.

  1. I have no words to describe how awful this is!

  2. Think people. We are running out of Republicans in the suburb already.
    And he used a Ford, could have been worse could have been a Lincoln

  3. Do you know of any car named for a Democrat?

  4. Why wasn’t this covered anywhere else? It seems like a pretty big deal. Was Cramer arrested?

  5. As Schaumburg Township Republican Committeeman, let me make something perfectly clear and to make a correction for this post, Mark Cramer is NOT a Schaumburg Township Republican precinct captain. He was relieved of that position very early in 2018.
