This appeal has been brought to defend a fundamental principal of democracy in a republic: the public funds of a government cannot be used to support the political operations of a particular political party. The action of the Board of Elections in the ten cases before this Court, in which the Board summarily dismissed all ten cases without public hearing on the indefensible rationale of a “lack of justifiable grounds”, threatens this fundamental tenet of democracy. This Court is therefore asked to uphold the law.

But there was Mayor Daley on Saturday, wearing a Cubs hat.
The city's No. 1 White Sox fan did the unthinkable while speaking to reporters at an event in Hyde Park.
It was the South Sider's show of support for the North Side team, which clinched a spot in the playoffs by winning the National League Central Friday night.
"They're a hot team, and that's exciting for Chicago," Daley said. "We're all sports fans. We're all Chicago fans, and we look for them to win the World Series this year."
Sammy Sosa once persuaded Daley to don a Cubs hat.
After the slugger hit 66 homers for the Cubs in 1998, he was honored at City Hall. Daley hesitated with the Cubs hat back then, and Sosa, a onetime Sox outfielder, assured him: "I was a Chicago White Sox fan, too."
Ald. Pat O'Connor (40th) at the time quipped: "For him, putting on that hat was like Superman wearing Kryptonite."
