Rep Rodney Davis' Field Director Charged With Assault After Crashing Londrigans campaign event

Rodney Davis’ Field Director Charged With Assault After Crashing Opponent’s Event
Staffer reportedly harassed Davis’ opponent Betsy Dirksen Londrigan


GOP Rep. Rodney Davis’ campaign field director was arrested and charged with aggravated assault Wednesday night after an altercation involving Davis’ Democratic opponent, Betsy Dirksen Londrigan.

The Illinois Republican’s field director Levi Lovell was arrested at Londrigan’s campaign event at a local bar, according to WCIA Chicago reporter Mark Maxwell. Lovell reportedly shouted at Londrigan, a businesswoman and former aide to Democratic Sen. Richard J. Durbin, and then punched someone at the event. Springfield Police confirmed to Roll Call that Lovell was booked into the Sangamon County Detention Facility.

No surprise this happened

Start a Discharge Petition for a Clean Continuing Resolution

Subject: U.S. Reps: Start a Discharge Petition for a Clean Continuing Resolution

Lets get off our asses and get this going.....

The Discharge Petition option is almost never used, unheard of by most of our U.S. Representatives and almost certainly unknown to most citizens. A simple reminder that this procedure exists could spark an interest, and a way out for all parties concerned.

That's why I signed a petition to The United States House of Representatives, which says:

"A Discharge Petition signed by a simple majority of U.S. Representatives would bypass the Speaker of the House, and would move a clean continuing resolution to a vote. Signing this MoveOn petition will remind our Representatives of the existence of this seldom used option, and their responsibility to exercise it."

Will you sign this petition? Click here:
