Anti-Worker, Pro-COVID Bully Keith Pekau is Wrong for Illinois Families
Today, Democratic Party of Illinois Executive Director Abby Witt released a statement following the announcement that Keith Pekau is running for Congress:
“Keith Pekau’s record of mismanagement and bullying speaks for itself. As a close ally of failed Gov. Bruce Rauner, Pekau has repeatedly opposed workers’ rights. He wasted tens of thousands of dollars of taxpayer money on a frivolous failed lawsuit fighting against the most basic COVID precautions. He was investigated for using his office to steer government contracts to closely-tied vendors, and then allegedly forced out the whistleblower who sparked the inquiry, leading to another lawsuit. Plain and simple, Keith Pekau is wrong for Illinois families.
