DESPICABLE REPROBATE: GSL Critic Senator Ira Silverstein Faces Sexual Harassment Charges

November 1, 2017


Back in 2011, Senator Ira Silverstein (pictured above) took issue with Guns Save Life.  The liberal Democrat Senator thought he had a chance to make political points by attacking Illinois gun owners in general and Guns Save Life in particular in support of a plan to make FOID cardholder names public.  He went to the press, claiming we crossed a line in our pushback to the proposal.  We're pretty sure he didn't expect us to push back twice as hard back before pushing back became popular.

The whole episode involved Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan's proposal to make Illinois FOID cardholders public information, in an effort to shame gun owners.  We pointed to history and how government registration lists can lead to horrific outcomes.  Sort of like how German leaders required Jewish Germans to wear a publicly identifiable yellow Star of David on their clothing.  Silverstein, sensing the effectiveness of our comparison, demanded – DEMANDED – GSL apologize.  We told him to go pound sand.

Now, we discover that Ira Silverstein's name has come up in public sexual harassment allegations.  

That's right:  Ira Silverstein may have used his power and influence to pressure women into bed with him, just like another hard-core liberal Democrat named Harvey Weinstein.

What a despicable reprobate.  Yeah, Harvey Weinstein too.

Advocate ignites harassment hearing, accuses senator of ‘mind games’

Chicago Sun-Times

Allegations against a Democratic state senator — and the loopholes that currently exist when it comes to reporting sexual harassment within state government — set an explosive tone as Illinois House members advanced a bill on Tuesday to target the rampant problem.

Denise Rotheimer, a victim rights advocate running for state representative as a Republican, testified before a House committee that state Sen. Ira Silverstein, D-Chicago, used “power” and “mind games” with her as she tried to advance legislation to help crime victims pay for legal care. She told the Sun-Times on Monday that Silverstein called her late at night frequently, constantly sent Facebook messages and met her to talk about the bill in unusual places, such as Millennium Park and an ice cream parlor.

She also accused Silverstein of killing her bill when he thought she had a boyfriend. Rotheimer said she felt like she had no control. Rotheimer provided the Sun-Times with hundreds of Facebook messages on Monday, which showed the two shared constant communication for several months.

…Silverstein said the behavior she described is “not in my blood.”

Yeah, that behavior is not in his blood.  It's in his pants.

Let's hope the residents in the 10th Senatorial district say enough is enough to perverts and reprobates representing them.

      When is the reprobate scumbag going to resign? You know if he had an "R" after his name he would be shamed and forced to resign, but then, democRATS know no "shame", if they did, they would not be democRATs.

      • Bill1 on November 2, 2017 at 9:32 pm

      • Bill1 on November 2, 2017 at 10:16 pm

        Hey GSL; I know this woman is the victim!

        But have you not been paying attention?

        The democRATS claim that anyone that questions them is working for Putin!

        You know a Russian agent. Call out a democRAT and your a Russian agent working for Putin. 

        And you think i'm shallow? 

        Thats all we have been hearing in the media for the last 10 months. Question a democRAT and your a Russian agent!

        Lord Please help GSL. open their eyes; and let them see. 

        Since you brought up the uranium deal; did you know the Hammonds and Bundys are still in jail for trying to expose the fact the democRATS sold our uranium to the Russian for millions and millions. The path to mine the uranium is through the Hammond ranch! DID YOU KNOW THAT GSL!

      mental midget moron billy-boy,

      please proof read your posts and, by the way, learn some grammar learn about the difference between "your, you're, and you are". A little too much caffene today, moron? Your hatefulness is bleeding through loud and clear, assho.

  4. David Deplorable on November 2, 2017 at 1:07 pm

    I think Ira is more interested in pussy than Putin.  saw that he lost his leadership position today.

    What decent woman would be the least bit interested in that lecherous douchebag?

    • Bill1 on November 2, 2017 at 1:43 pm

      My comment was based on how Democrats blame their problems on Russia 

      • GSL1598 on November 2, 2017 at 1:59 pm

        So you are a democRAT?

      • Bill1 on November 2, 2017 at 10:46 pm

        No,  I am not a democRAT. I have been oaying attention for the last 10 months and watching the democRATS claim anyone questioning  a democRAT is a Russian agent. 

        You may have heard something like Trump is a Russian agent, Rand Paul is a Russian agent anyone that supports Trump or questions a democRAT is a Russian agent. Its only been in the news about a million times

  5. Bill1 on November 2, 2017 at 10:53 pm

     you good people a GSL may not recall this but Ira Silverstein is the senator that told a fellow Illinois senator of Polish decent that the polish people can not claim oppression under Nazism. 

    Do you recall that one? I can not think of the senators name but I remember it, because I was the one that informed Aaron Zelman of the event. 

    • GSL1598 on November 3, 2017 at 4:05 pm

      mental midget moron billy-boy,

      You are correct about one thing moron: you can not think! (see above!)

      • GSL1598 on November 3, 2017 at 4:08 pm

        ….as well as you can not recall…by your own words.

      • Bill1 on November 3, 2017 at 10:15 pm

        Thank you for your reply. I am glad to know that GSL is on the front line of defending our gun rights and has such an understanding of political satire.

    The only reason GSL is going after the honorable senator Ira Silerstein is because he is Jewish

    • GSL1598 on November 4, 2017 at 6:57 pm

      Wrong Fi, I go after the pervert because he is a pervert and a slimeball.I care not what his religion is, a slimeball pervert is a slimeball pervert, no matter what his religion is.

  7. GSL1598 on November 4, 2017 at 6:59 pm

    "honorable"? what "honor" is there in perversion?

  8. buzz alpert on November 12, 2017 at 12:29 am

    First I'm a member of GSL and have inordinate respect and gratitude to the organization for their work on concealed carry and their educational programs.  Ira Silverstein is Jewish as I am.  I can say things to him that if a Christian, or whomever, said he could cry 'foul' or something worse.  I have written many emails to him and spoken to him about the importance of law abiding citizens having a gun and a concealed carry permit. But I went a step further and repeated what he may not know. but should know.  11 million civilians died in the Holocaust, 6 million Jews along with 5 million Christians, basically unarmed.  I told him if those people had been armed more Nazis would have died, though I don't think it would have stopped Hitler's genocide. Hitler’s main thrust was against the Jews, but many other groups suffered at the hands of the Nazis.  A close friend of mine, who is an orthodox Jew, and has prayed at the same synagogue with Ira, has spoken to him on gun ownership by the citizenry many times. Yet he votes against personal firearms ownership time and again. I am an independent voter trying desperately to vote for the best person, regardless of party, for America.  I have written many emails on private ownership and concealed carry to Ira and I am very disappointed and angry that a Jewish man, after all the awful history of the Holocaust still does not understand the need and the rights of law abiding Americans to own and/or legally carry a handgun for their own and their family’s safety and survival. We gun owners are the thin line after law enforcement and the military that might be called upon to save the constitution and our flag from unlawful forces. I’ve owned guns since I was 17.  I enlisted in the Marines after graduating from college and served in the enlisted ranks, rising to infantry sergeant and learned great respect for firearms and safety.  There are very few crimes committed by concealed carry licensed people. Maybe if Ira had served his country he would understand more about the citizens’ need to own a gun in today’s insane society.  Several of my Black buddies who work hard, have no criminal records and pay their taxes on time are hesitant to let their children go out and play by themselves. And 'Uncle Ira' just doesn't get it.

    One of the things I've alawys liked about Guns Save Life, is that we've always stuck together and showed each other respect. Why is GSL1598 allowed to make disparaging remarks to another member? I understood Bill1's sarcasm.
