Cook County Crock

posted on April 9, 2015

A comic kerfuffle is brewing in Illinois Democrat fundraising circles. A self-described “… boutique consulting firm with a wide variety of Democratic clients …”—KDJ Strategies—has filed suit in Cook County Circuit Court against Gun Violence Prevention PAC.

Despite an upscale Highland Park address, G-PAC, as they abbreviate themselves, is apparently out of money. The single count of the suit alleges that $26,800 has been due since December 2014 for services to include “… fundraising, (and) event coordination … .”

It’s hard to say which aspect of the unfolding fracas is more amusing: that money comes well before principle among anti-firearms denizens, or that there may not be nearly the support for disarmament that G-PAC founders imagined.

Or that they needed a “boutique consultant” to figure that out.
