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.

Why should ANY profession have a minimum anymore? Minimum wage, historically, was targeted at single-bread-winner families. Now that both spouses work in most cases the need for minimum wage is lessened due to that fact. You also don't need to pay teenagers a "living" wage.

I guess that it only makes sense that, in the great state of Illinois, where 4 of our last 7 governors have spent time (or are currently) in jail, that a CONVICTED felon could run for public office!
