Welcome Congressman Zero (IL-19)

Rep. John Shimkus (IL-19) is in Congress for another two years. With a national shift of the balance of power on The Hill, his return to power will mean less everything for him and his staff and almost nothing to Central and So. IL residents.

The agenda of the Democratic Majority will certainly include more thorough investigations into ethics violations. (Former) Speaker Dennis Hastert (IL-14) and Rep. Shimkus should have appointments with their lawyers by now.

The agenda should also include a request for redistricting in Illinois. Gerrymandering is about the only thing keeping people like Rep. Shimkus, Rep. Jerry Weller (IL-11), and Rep. Tim Johnshon (IL-15) in office.

The only constant is change. When it comes to Illinois, it will be a very good thing indeed.
