2nd District congressional candidate and Homewood attorney Earnest B. Fenton says he was not allowed to participate in a Feb. 7 candidate forum at Governors State University (GSU). According to a statement from Fenton, GSU failed to recognize his confirmation of attendance.
"GSU is a public tax payer institution, none of the political candidates should be barred from participating,” Fenton’s Campaign Manager David Anderson said in a release. “Also, we have records of the calls to GSU confirming our attendance,”
Despite his claims to have been excluded from the event, Fenton attended last week’s forum, anyway.
"I don't know how to react to this except to say that this is Chicago politics in the works,” Fenton said in a release. "I am not going to let this sway my momentum.”
