CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

League of Women Voters member Kathy Tate-Bradish moderated a recent 8th Congressional District debate in Grayslake featuring U.S. Rep. Melissa Bean, a Democrat from Barrington, Republican Joe Walsh of McHenry and the Green Party’s Bill Scheurer. She’s been criticized for obstructing a request to say the Pledge of Allegiance before the debate of the 8th Congressional District on October 21.


SOMEONE FROM THE AUDIENCE: Are we going to say the Pledge of Allegiance

TATE-BRADISH: No we are not. Excuse me, I have nothing for or against saying the Pledge of Allegiance at the beginning of something like this, but in fact that has never been part …


AUDIENCE: I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

In the video segement, Glenn Beck immediately asks, “Who is not for or against the Pledge of Allegiance?” Then the program cuts back to the incident before the debate showing TATE-BRADISH lecturing the audience.

Ladies and Gentlemen:

I hope. I hope. That that will be te last time that I am disrespected. There is certainly no disrespect [heckle] Excuse me! Excuse me! There is no disrespect to the flag when something in a forum, which does not typically begin with the Pledge of Allegiance, doesn’t begin with it. There’s no disrespect intended.

— Kathy Tate-Bradish

Illinois League of Women Voters Executive Director Jan Czarnik called the incident phony patriotism by supporters of the Joe Walsh campaign.

Glenn Beck explains in the segment that Tate-Bradish is a staunch support of President Barack Obama’s election campaign. In 2007 Bradish hosted a campaign event at her home for Organizing for America’s Hope, Action, Change campaign.

In the video segment Glenn Beck reports that Jan Czarnik worked with ACORN’s Project Vote funded by TIDES. She is also a member of the People for the American Way (funded by George Soros) and the Democracy Alliance (funded by George Soros).

Americans for Legal Immigration – ALIPAC an immigration reduction-oriented political action committee. Its president is William Gheen and it is frequently quoted in the national and international press on immigration issues.

The League of Women Voters is an American political organization founded in 1920 by Carrie Chapman Catt during the last meeting of the National American Woman Suffrage Association approximately six months before the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution gave women the right to vote.

The league is nonpartisan, refusing to endorse or oppose political candidates or parties at any level of government. The league DOES support or oppose many political issues after studying them and coming to a consensus on a position. The league works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and to influence public policy through education and advocacy, as well as through political lobbying of Congress. The League of Women Voters is organized into two complementary halves: Voter service and citizen education; and program and action.
