ILLINOIS REVIEW
-- Illinois Republican Party: No Outside Views Allowed - Lee Newcom
http://illinoisreview.typepad.com/illinoisreview/2008/04/illinois-republ.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Could someone please explain to me why the Illinois Republican Party staff is making phone calls to county chairmen telling them not to allow people to speak who (gasp) may have ideas other than genuflecting to current leaders? This morning WLS radio commentator and long-time Republican activist Dan Proft spoke to our monthly Republican meeting. But not before our county chairman received a call from the state party headquarters warning him that he should not allow Proft to speak. Why? Well, Proft "bashes" the Republican party. Huh? Now I have heard Proft speak before and again today. He comes with a long pedigree of managing campaigns, writing and commenting on issues. He correctly speaks to the question of how we rebuild as a party. You don't correct your mistakes unless you are willing to ask where you went wrong and how you get back. That is NOT a negative message. It is engaging in dialog about where the party is and how we rebuild. In fact, Proft said nothing negative about the party or party leadership. He did make some very good points and I recommend him as a speaker to local GOP organizations. There will be no rebuilding by people who are determined that NO ONE may dare speak except current leaders. Party leaders who have a staff sycophant calling to suppress any ideas shows only the weakness of those leaders. So long as the Illinois Republican Party has a sign hanging out, "No Ideas Allowed," there will be no success.)

CHAMPION NEWS
-- Champion News calls on GOP officials to release current list of State Convention Delegates and Alternates - Doug Ibendahl
http://www.championnews.net/article.php?sid=934
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Editor's Note: The letter below was sent today to the 102 Republican County Chairmen in Illinois. We encourage our readers to also contact their own County Chairman directly and to request that the list of Delegates and Alternates be made publicly available. Where there are still vacant slots around the state, let's also offer to help those County Chairmen find committed, honest Republicans who are serious about getting to Decatur in June for the purpose of putting the Illinois Republican Party back on track. Dear County Chairman: I hope you're doing well. I'm writing today to ask if you might be willing to release the list as it stands now of your Delegates and Alternates for the upcoming State Convention. What we're trying to do is open up this process and protect against a repeat of the 2004 Convention in Collinsville which was such a major disappointment for most Republicans who bothered to attend. Delegates attend as representatives for all Republicans in their County. Republicans deserve to know who those representatives will be. I hope you agree.)
