Republican Greenberg Misleading Voters About GOP Sources of Campaign Money

Northwest Suburbs – With only 15 days left until the election and trailing in the polls, Republican Jonathan Greenberg’s campaign is misleading voters about the source of his campaign money.

“Greenberg’s campaign is bought and paid for by right wing, anti-choice Republicans in Springfield and around Illinois. By withholding campaign finance disclosure forms, they hide the source of money from the public” said Joseph Randol, Nekritz’s campaign manager.

Greenberg’s campaign appears to have withheld campaign finance disclosures for political mail costing approximately $40,000 sent by the Illinois Republican Party. The Nekritz campaign provided five mail pieces sent by the Illinois Republican Party supporting Greenberg that do not have corresponding timely campaign finance disclosures.

Candidates are required to publicly disclose contributions over $1,000 within 5 days of receiving the donation. Failure to file these reports could cost Greenberg’s campaign tens of thousands of dollars for these violations.

“Greenberg may call himself a moderate, but voters need to follow the money. The fact is he’s received over $150,000 from Springfield Republicans who want him to vote their way,” said Randol.

Over 90% of donations received by Greenberg’s campaign in his 3rd quarter filing were from Illinois Republican organizations. These campaign finance violations will be reviewed by the Illinois State Board of Elections.
