When did we go too far with #cookingmama?
In March 2016, after more than a year of campaigning, Ms. Cooksey’s campaign received more than $1.1 million in donations.
But she had a lot to work with.
The $1,000 a month she got from her campaign donors was about half of what her office spent, according to campaign finance records.
And a major source of her campaign funds came from the Cook County Board of Elections.
“It is the most corrupt and incompetent county board in the state,” Ms. Brewer wrote in a statement.
“Their actions in the months leading up to the November election have been nothing short of a disgrace.”
Ms. Catey’s election was overturned after an internal investigation found irregularities in the counting of ballots, including one that was improperly tabulated.
The Cook County Commission later cleared Ms. Brewster of any wrongdoing, but she was convicted of perjury and fined $100,000, which she appealed.
In 2016, Ms, Cateys attorney filed an appeal, arguing that she did not have to provide proof that she was in compliance with election rules, as required by law.
The appeals court sided with her, saying that Ms. Coates conduct was “reckless” and that she had acted “unlawfully and without due diligence.”
Ms Brewer, a Democrat, said she had no regrets about the election, and said her campaign had “put the interests of the people of Cook County first.”
But she said she was troubled by the way she and her campaign handled the recount process.
“What we did is, we called in a firm, a political consulting firm, to help us,” she said.
“We were told to not call it in unless we had a specific request.
We didn’t have to.
“So we were given a deadline, which I don’t think is legal, and we were told that we had to wait another week.” “
But the county commissioners overruled Ms. Crafts decision, arguing in a ruling that “the time limit imposed by the Commission on the recount is unreasonable and that it is unfair to the public.” “

Ms Brewster said she is pleased that the recount has ended, and hopes to have the election certified by mid-February.
“I’m glad the process is over,” she told The Globe and Mail in a phone interview.
“Now I have a lot of time to think about what to do with it.”
