Never under estimate the power of mom. Cedra Crenshaw, stay at home mother, Tea Party Activist, and GOP candidate for the state Senate in Will County prevailed over the Democratic Machine. It was the criminal Chicago Machine who assisted in getting her knocked off the ballot. Her Democratic opponent, A.J. Wilhelmi, wanted to run unopposed. Like most Democrats this election cycle, he did not relish being in the unemployment line. In typical gangster fashion, he wanted to win the easy way, the Chicago way.
A.J. Wilhelmi needed “professional” help. So, he begged the Chicago boys for help. The Machine came through. The sent their political hit men to Will county. The boys underestimated the power of mom. Even the most hardened gangsters do not mess with moms. They know mom is always right. Mom can kill with a glare. Some times even hardened professionals fail to grasp simple concepts.
A Will county judge established that. Cedra Crenshaw’s petitions and signatures are valid. She is on the ballot, and A.J. Wilhelmi has a challenger. A popular challenger. It is going to be a real political race. The question now is, will he turn to the boys from Chicago for help again? Will they unleash their street crews and button men on the unsuspecting voters of Will County? Will they go to the mattresses?
The Chicago boys better stay home. Cedra Crenshaw is one mom who will strike fear in the hearts of the coldest, hardest Chicago Democratic mobsters. They may find themselves listening to trunk music. Not some Italian classical piece popularized for a movie. Maybe something annoying. More lethal. A child’s song. “This is the song that doesn’t end…”
