The Kochs' Americans for Prosperity must have decided they need to do some "voter information" in what's an awfully tight race for governor in Illinois. According to the Daily Kos Elections Outlook, there's about a 4-point spread between Democratic incumbent Pat Quinn and Republican Bruce Rauner. Enter AFP to try to create a little chaos in the election. And like in North Carolina, where they sent hundreds of thousands of fraudulent mailers, they're upsetting people by sending mailers to their dead loved ones.
See, the mailer made it seem like it had one from County Clerk Bean. All over the state, people have been calling their county clerks to find out if they really do have to re-register, because all of the mailings from AFP are meant to look like they're coming from elections officials.
