The @ChicagoTribune owes my wife an apology. But I'm not holding my breath.

My wife, Helene Miller Walsh, is the current Republican State Representative in Illinois' 51st District. She's running against a Mike Madigan Democrat. #twill (1/)
This past week, the Chicago Tribune endorsed that Mike Madigan Democrat. That's fine. It's a free country. The Tribune can endorse whomever they choose.

But why did the newspaper endorse a Mike Madigan Democrat, and not Helene? (2/)
In their own words: "Helene Miller Walsh it turns out had posted, then deleted, crude and divisive remarks about Jews, Muslims, and blacks on her social media."

That's it? (3/)
People are fleeing this bankrupt state because of Mike Madigan and taxes and the @ChicagoTribune endorses a Mike Madigan Democrat over a tax cutting Republican because of alleged Facebook posts? What a joke. (4/)
First off, the Tribune lied. Helene has NEVER deleted any FB post. Second, the Tribune accuses Helene of posting slurs against Jews. How disingenuous and disgusting. The Tribune must not know Helene is Jewish. (5/)
She's a proud, practicing Conservative Jewess who loves her faith dearly. She comes from a long line of Rabbis on one side of her family and Zionists on the other. Shame on you @ChicagoTribune.

Third, the Tribune accuses Helene of being a racist. Bullshit. (6/)
My wife has devoted much of her life these past six years down on Chicago's South Side, working to improve the lives of Black Chicagoans. She works side by side with Pastor @CoreyBBrooks... (7/)
...on his efforts to stop the street violence in Chicago and bring economic opportunities to the area. Racist? Give me a break!

@ChicagoTribune, you suck! You endorse virtually every Republican running for office in Illinois because you know Democrats have ruined IL. (8/)
Yet you won't endorse my JEWISH wife because you accuse her of being an anti-Semite.

Policy wise, Helene stands for everything you profess to support: fiscal responsibility and a more tax-friendly environment to keep people from leaving Illinois... (9/)
But you ignore all of that, and instead slander her reputation and attack her religious faith.

It's no wonder your endorsements no longer have any bearing on the outcomes of races. (10/)
In fact, Helene will win BECAUSE of your slander. The voters of the 51st District know that a vote for Helene's Democrat opponent is a vote for Mike Madigan.

Shame on you @ChicagoTribune. #twill (11/x)
