One watchdog group says State Senator John O. Jones submitted forged signatures to the state board of elections. Jones denies that claim.
Adam Andrzejewski with the "For the Good of Illinois" PAC didn't actually object to the signatures. But, he says his job is to expose political corruption no matter what side of the aisle it occurs on. He also says some of Jones' petitions were circulated in prisons and schools, which is an ethics violation. He wants the state Inspector General to follow up on those alleged violations.
Jones withdrew from the race after Senator Kyle McCarter successfully challenged Jones' petitions. McCarter says Jones' withdrawal is good enough for him.
