I think it's disgusting that we prohibit felons from municipal office by state law but then can have felons run for state office...and congress... Is that the Peter Principle in action or what?

The only prohibition I'm aware of for felons in politics here in IL is at the municipal level. From county on up, I don't believe there is any restriction. But if you decide to run, you better know that your past WILL come up, and if you don't want to talk about it, you might just want to stay home.
