    near the intersection of Mack and S Winfield Roads. The main street he lives off of is the boundary between IL-06 and IL-14, and he lives on the IL-14 side of it.

      This might be pubic record, but I really think we shouldn't be specifically sharing the personal addresses of members of Congress.

      I'm contemplating a 0 rating for this comment, even though I don't really want to.

      You might as an administrator to delete it.

      Ok, so I read the polls.

        candidate filing address. Like I said, public record and only requires a computer and 5 minutes to find out.

          The combination of the requirement to put in an address to make a campaign contribution, and the fact that technology like this: http://fundrace.huffingtonpost.com/
          exists today, where you can easily find people who made potentially-unpopular donations in a given area?  Do you think there's a chilling effect, or is it the public's right to know?  And, I think the most interesting question is--if there was this technology when the rules were being written, would they have been written the same way?

            public's right to know. I remember that the Prop 8 donors were made public, leading to negative reactions against them (for instance, a boycott of the San Diego Hyatt Hotel). I also remember there was a lawsuit related to releasing the names of people who forced Washington's domestic partner expansion to go to a vote, but I don't remember how that one turned out. There may have also been something similar with Maine's Question 1 (the gay marriage repeal).
