ROCKFORD–The President of Illinois’ largest taxpayer organization today named gubernatorial candidate, State Senator Bill Brady (R-44, Bloomington) the group’s August “Tax Villain of the Month.” Speaking at a news conference in Rockford, IL, Jim Tobin, President of National Taxpayers United of Illinois (NTUI), also distributed “wanted flyers” as he outlined why Brady had earned this dubious distinction.

“Bill Brady is wasting tax dollars as we speak with his unwarranted objections to petition signatures of potential third-party candidates,” said Tobin. “Election officials have denied thousands of Brady’s objections to these signatures and, unfortunately, it’s all at taxpayer expense. Brady should come clean with the voters of Illinois about why he is wasting their money and why he is abusing our election laws for his own personal gain.”
“Bill Brady’s petition challenges are a crime against voters and taxpayers. He’s following in George Ryan’s footsteps and the people of Illinois need to be warned. Brady voted in favor of George Ryan’s $12 billion pork-laden ‘Illinois First’ program in 1999 with Yes votes on SB629 and SB630. Brady’s continued support of spending programs like ‘Illinois First’ is a major cause of Illinois’ financial problems and high unemployment.”
“Brady even attacked senior citizens with his recent vote in favor of SB3638,” said Tobin. “Brady voted to require senior citizens to re-apply for property tax relief every year. His hope is that some of the senior citizens will forget to re-apply each year and end up paying higher property taxes. SB3638 also increased property taxes on recently purchased homes and commercial properties.”
“Illinois cannot afford another career politician in the mold of George Ryan,” said Tobin. “Bill Brady has not been the taxpayer’s friend in Springfield and the voters should be wary of his tax-and spend past. NTUI is naming Bill Brady our “Tax Villain of the Month” to get the word out that he has too many similarities to George Ryan to be trusted by the people of Illinois.”
Tobin continued his successful Illinois Taxpayer Protection Tour with a stop in Lena later that evening.
Brady’s “crimes against the taxpayers” are summarized in his “Wanted” flyer.

Republicans always gave us the song and dance that they were for small businesses and taxpayers. Their record in Springfield is even worse than Democrats. Thanks for exposing them. They have lost my vote.
We’re going to miss Blagojevich. He was the only governor who kept his pledge not to try to raise the state income tax.
I will never again fall for the campaign lies of Republican politicians. They are as bad as the Democrats. At least the Democrats are honest and tell you they want to raise your taxes.
Jim, I know you will get a lot of flak for exposing Brady and his ilk, but please keep it up. We need to know who our friends and enemies are in Springfield.
I seems that most of the our “friends” in Springfield are really our enemies. They just tell us different.
I am voting for honesty this year…Lex Green is my choice for Governor.
it is time we break this Democratic Socialists Party and Republican Party monopoly in politics, and actually get representatives who really follow our Constitution and who actually represent the people instead of the Corporations and Big Government unions that are working against our Constitutional Republic way of life. We need the Libertarian approach. Freedom, Liberty and smaller government for the people.
