People of Illinois vs. J.B. Pritzker Gaining Steam

A local woman has launched what is turning into a large movement online.  The private group “People of Illinois Vs. J.B. Pritzker” has since it’s launch Monday, has now more than 18,500 members.  WROY/WRUL reached out to founder Kelli Leavens Wednesday evening to learn more about the goals and plans involved in the group.  She responded but wasn’t willing to go on record with us yet instead saying she was overwhelmed by the amount of people that have joined and adding she’s not a fan of the spotlight.  It’s grown over just a few days into something that has required she bring on nearly a dozen additional administrators for the private group.  Members are currently gathering signatures at http://www.illinoisfreedom.org declaring that the governor has overstepped the authority granted him by section 7 of the Illinois Constitution and by doing so has caused irreparable harm to livelihoods and/or property.  Filling out the form allows the admins of the group to share contact information with Thomas DeVore, the attorney who assisted State Representative Darren Bailey in his successful suit against the governor.  Those who sign up will be added to a list for a potential Class Action Lawsuit.  We still hope to visit with Leavens or another admin of the group in the coming hours.  You can attempt to join the group by visiting https://www.facebook.com/groups/554889525163535.
