District 214 Votes to Continue the Flow of Porn and Obscenity to Their Kids

Incumbent victory was decisive, but not overwhelming. Challengers garnered a significant percentage of the vote spending much less money.

An incumbent trio with nearly 40 decades of collective board experience clinched a decisive victory Tuesday in Northwest Suburban High School District 214, holding off three challengers in a hard-fought, expensive and closely watched campaign that will go down in Illinois' history books.

In unofficial totals, with 97 percent of 224 precincts reporting late Tuesday, incumbent Bill Dussling had the biggest chunk of votes: 13,460, or about 21 percent. Incumbent Alva Kreutzer had 12,486; incumbent Bob Zimmanck secured the final seat with 12,150.

The next-closest competitor, retired District 214 educator Jim Harbaugh, finished with 9,107 votes. Dennis Konczyk and Ken Frizane, the two challengers pointed to by incumbents throughout the race as having Christian conservative ties, had 8,756 and 7,956 votes, respectively.

"What it tells me is the community values what this district is," said Dussling...

What it tells me is either:

A. The majority of the community didn't bother to read the excerpts


B. The majority community did read the excerpts but has difficulty making a sound moral judgment -- even when it's obvious.

Either way, it does not bode well for the future of this country...
