Just more than 800 votes in Tuesday's primary brought a close to political newcomer and University of Chicago Trauma Center director and physician Jefferey Leef's run for the Illinois 7th Congressional District seat.
Jeff Leef’s reaction to House Speaker Mike Madigan’s (D-Chicago) running feud with Rep. Scott Drury (D-Highwood) over his lack of support for the longtime party leader is to openly wonder how it is anyone, in good faith, could co-sign on any of Madigan's policies.
Jeff Leef, a River Forest physician running in the Republican primary in the 7th Congressional District for the seat held by U.S. Rep. Danny Davis (D-IL), is against the legalization of marijuana, arguing that today’s version of the drug is far different from what was available in the past.
Jeff Leef thinks there is a simple answer to the question of why leaders of the Democratic Victory Fund would support the re-election of Sen. Ira Silverstein (D-Chicago) by contributing more than $55,000 to his campaign. “Because we live in the most politically corrupt state in the America and voters are not bold enough or care enough to vote these morally bankrupt cretins out on their abnormally low set ears,” he told the West Cook News.
Jeff Leef said he thinks House Speaker Mike Madigan (D-Chicago) handled the sexual harassment scandal plaguing his office in the same way he has every other issue that has threatened his nearly four-decade-long run of power.
Jeff Leef says Illinois Lottery Control Board Chairman Blair Garber’s social media remarks about East St. Louis being the “shi*hole of the universe” proves just how much of a joke the entire Republican Party has become.
Jeff Leef still proudly declares himself a “Reagan Republican,” which makes it all the more difficult for him to digest the stomach-churning depths to which he believes the current GOP has deteriorated.
Jeff Leef feels the pain felt by taxpayers in Illinois, making it virtually impossible for the River Forest Republican who is vying for the seat held by longtime U.S. Rep. Danny Davis (D-IL) in the 7th Congressional District to ask residents not to follow their hearts in trying to make things better for themselves.
With a new IRS report detailing more than 86,000 people fled Illinois at a cost of nearly $5 billion in adjusted gross income over just a yearlong period, Jeff Leef, a River Forest Republican vying for Congress in the 7th Congressional District, says he’s seen enough from Springfield.
