    Mr. CPA lost that election I believe in the late '90s. He still hasn't gotten over it.

      He had the wife and ids in the hotel reception room where the DuPage County Republicans were having their election night party. They were bummed but he got some other filler position. We had, I think, a Lauzen for Senate sign in the front yard when I was growing up, don't remember when.

      Somebody really needs to tell the White House that "1984" is a cautionary tale, not a political guidebook.

          mostly because compared to the rest of Illinois Republicans, they're pretty uncorrupt. My dad is entirely uncorrupt, and Lauzen is relatively clean.

          Illinois politics are not known for their lack of corruption.
