Outwitting Danny Davis in court: How a radiologist from River Forest beat The Man

 The man who outwitted Congressman Danny Davis (with the help of a U.S. judge) is at your service tonight, 7 o’clock, at the Library on Lake Street.
He’s Jeff Leef, on the ballot as a REPUBLICAN opposing the venerable Mr. Davis for U.S. Representative. But it was a close call.You can read about it at Chi Trib’s “The candidate vs. the machine, a Chicago story.”

Leef, a River Forest radiologist, was knocked off the ballot by Chicago Dems magically transformed into Republican committeemen, who themselves were then knocked out by legitimate Republicans, who were then countermanded by the — guess what? — the Dem-dominated Chicago Board of Elections.

Hey, it’s Chicago, it’s Cook County. It’s how it’s done.

Finally, a federal judge said nuts to that and put him back on the ballot.

He will talk tonight about his electoral adventures and why he embarked on them at the Library.

7 to 9 o’clock closing, folks. You’re invited.
