Alan Keyes, a Maryland resident is running for the Illinois senate as a Republican against Barak Obama, who made his nation debut to wide acclaim at the Democratic National convention.
Doesn’t this seem wrong? The guy doesn’t even have the decency to rent an apartment in Illinois before announcing his candidacy. I know that this has been happing for quite a while, and I wouldn’t be suprised if it were a bi-partisan practice, but how can this guy represent the people of Illinois when the only ones he knows are the ones are probably the ones that recruited him (if they were even local)?
It’s just bullshit. We are working for the politicians. They should be working for us.
