Would You Elect This Person?

Let me describe a hypothetical candidate for Congress. Then, you tell me if you’d vote for him/her.

  • Incumbent
  • Absent from office since June 2012 with no return date known (initially, his whereabouts were unknown to the public he purported to zealously represent as a lawmaker).
  • Diagnosed this year with “mood disorder” and bipolar disorder.
  • Something about a Peruvian hostess.
  • Implicated in the Senate-seat-selling scandal of Rod Blagojevich.
  • Currently the subject of a Congressional Ethics Investigation.
  • Previously implicated in an FBI investigation.
  • Currently the subject of an FBI criminal investigation.
  • Previously named one of the 15 most corrupt members of Congress by liberal group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.

So, would you?

If you would, you would get-along just peachy with 60% of voters in the Second Congressional District of Illinois.

  1. Dude. I thought the video above was a campaign ad for the candidate you were talking about. Took me 43 seconds to figure out it was an ad for UPS.

    Who is this candidate and WHY IS THERE A FREAKIN’ AD ON YOUR BLOG?
