Ex-state rep should get prison time

Wow! I was shocked to read that another Illinois politician had pleaded guilty to fraud.

Former state Rep. Constance Howard, you need to go directly to jail and repay all of the money you stole from the contributors to the fund you established, for the sole purpose of lining your pockets with cash.

You are a thief and should be treated as a thief; spend some time in prison.

When will this stop? Illinois politicians abusing their elected positions for their personal gain.
