Why I Ran for Illinois Attorney General

Support a Retired Marine, Not a Political Machine.

I ran for Illinois Attorney General for two reasons:  First, this state desperately needs an independent Attorney General who is not beholden to the special interests and political insiders.  Second, I don't think that anyone else can do a better job than me.  I realize that sounds arrogant, but I'm not seeing much in the way of leadership from our political class.  If they aren't capable of finding someone better than me, then I feel an obligation to serve our state.  One of my core beliefs is that you have no right to complain about a situation unless you have tried to change it.

When you read my biography, you'll see that I've succeeded in a variety of legal work ranging from running a legal assistance clinic to advising the Iraqi prosecutors in the Saddam trial.  Along the way, I've developed solutions with folks from across the entire political spectrum.

Our state needs a new perspective, a new set of eyes, and new solutions.
