Looks like Susan Klinkhamer was a Republican before she was a Democrat.
Klinkhamer’s voting record in Kane County shows she voted Republican in six primaries from 1996 through 2006. Then the record shows she voted Democratic in the special and general primary in 2008 and the 2010 primary.
But that, she said, does not prove she is a Republican. It proves that when you are the minority party, you will take the other team’s ballot just to have a voice in who gets nominated, she said.
Whether or not this amounts to a stealth run by a closet Republican to disrupt the Democratic primary harder to say. I doubt it. She worked for the Democrat Congressman Bill Foster. I take her at her word here.
