Alan Dershowitz has endorsed Republican Joel Pollack for US Representative in the Illinois 9th over incumbent Democrat Jan Schakowsky.

It’s in Politico, a Washington Post Blog, while Chicago Now posts a press release from the Pollak campaign in one of our favorite blogs. TPM and Salon ridicule Dershowitz for straying from the apparatchik’s devotion to Pollak’s opponent Jan Schakowsky.
The Tribune and Sun-Time’s missed it, they must have been otherwise engaged with nitpicking Mark Kirk’s teaching record (Sun-Times)  or nitpicking Mark Kirk’s military record (Tribune).

From Joel Pollak at Big Governmet
I have found evidence that may explain the intense interest of Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) in bailing out ShoreBank, the “community development” bank that has received extraordinary assistance from her and several other “friends in high places.”

The New York Times confirms that Rep. Schakowsky played a leading role in the ShoreBank bailout. Yet ShoreBank is not based in Rep. Schakowsky’s congressional district, and she did not help the Bank of Lincolnwood–which is in her district, and failed in 2009–or Park National Bank, which was also active in community development …

Joel Pollak, 32, (graduate of Niles North, Harvard College, Harvard Law School), wants Jan Schakowsky’s seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Having secured the GOP nomination after running unopposed in the February primary, Pollak now boasts that an endorsement from Alan Dershowitz, the Harvard professor and Obama supporter, is in the bag. A formal nod will come later this spring, he promises, when Dershowitz, for whom Pollak worked as a research assistant, travels to Chicago for a press conference. (Dershowitz had not responded by post time to attempts to …

From Robert Creamer, husband of US Rep. Jan Schakowsky and inmate number 16923-424 at Terra Haute Federal Correctional Facility

What’s worse, these insurance executives don’t get a first-hand look at the suffering and death that results from their policies, or their attempts to block reform. They manage their war from pristine office towers. They don’t have to look into the eyes of a husband whose wife has just died of cancer that could have been cured if it were caught early – but went undetected because for financial reasons she had …

Rep Jan Schakowsky advising Scott Lee Cohen on the mud slung in politics?
Geez, of all people to advise Cohen to step aside because of the mud slung in politics. Schakowsky’s husband Bob Creamer did some hard-time down at Terre Haute for a check kiting scheme and the two of them still walk tall. If Schakowsky’s calling shots here, Cohen oughtta stay. Who’s Schakosky and Creamer to talk.
