A new bill in Illinois came about after one politician caused quite a stir.
The U.S. representative was able to run for office even though he owes
child support payments.
The new bill would prevent anyone that owes more than $10,000 from running
for public office in the state. It was inspired by the politician that
reportedly owes over $100,000 in back support to his ex-wife. Despite
this large amount, the politician has not found to be in contempt of the court.
Even if the bill is passed, however, the current representative could be
voted into office once again. That is because the filing deadline for
the next election is this week, well before the bill could be passed.
