IL SOS Candidate Pat Dowell on FCC proposed $5.1 M Fine of Burkman, Wohl For Voter Robocall Lies
By: Illinois for Pat Dowell
I immediately saw this as a blatant attempt to suppress the vote, especially in the Black community. I shared with the community to NOT believe these calls. In interviews with local and national media, I informed voters NOT to trust these calls. As Secretary of State, I will be ever vigilant to protect voters and their access to voting. I will speak out strongly and with force to ensure that the rights of voters are defended and safeguarded.
