    That's an odd irony. To want to use election funds to avoid the opposite of election -- impeachment. It makes sense in a bizarre way: using election funds to maintain your elected status.

    What? smoking something or asking for election funds to cover his attorney fees?

    If it's the second, I don't know if the illinois constitution allows it...

    Illinois is about as backward and currupt as a state can get (besides Oregon) so they may say its ok, if its legal then I guess he can. I am just truly shocked that libs arnt coming out of the wood work to defend him like they usually do, it must be because he called the messiah a MFer

    Yes it is legal in most cases. Rep. Don Young (R-AK) has spent over a million dollars from his campaign chest on legal defense for his on going federal investigation.

    This report is from February, but the expenses have gone over a million, I read a report last month that said so, but could not easily find it. Either way,
    here is one from February.
