Tao Martinez edorses… a Republican?

Today, Kane County Democratic Coroner nominee Tao Martinez endorsed Republican county chair contender Chris Lauzen. Declaring Lauzen was “the most qualified candidate,” Martinez added, “There isn’t a Democratic or Republican way to run the coroner’s office, just the right way.”
All I can say is, this guy has balls. 
Of course, Lauzen opponent and GOP plant, Sue Klinkhamer, in what may well be the ultimate irony, claimed Lauzen had recruited Martinzez to run against Rob Russell because Russell is a “Friend of Karen” or “FOK – a term I coined! It’s nice to know Ms. Klinkhamer reads my columns.
Not only did Lauzen deny that allegation, but he reiterated his support for the Republican Russell.
As you might imagine, this revelation threw the already inept Kane County Democratic “machine” into complete conniptions, but the truth is, they couldn’t get Martinez elected on their best day. He’s on his own in this one. Remember, these are the same folks who slated former Carpentersville Mayor Bill Sarto in that primary only to watch him lose to Klinkhamer – a candidate who didn’t even bother to campaign.
And they don’t even have the good sense to be embarrassed about it!
Please note my endorsements. I choose the best candidate regardless of party affiliation. Isn’t it time for that kind of thinking?
