The Ladies Man Cometh

How do you spell Courvoisier?They say in politics, if you have a problem hang a lantern on it. For Lake County's ambitious Congressman, Peter Roskam, make it a candygram.

The message is clear. Those unsure whether Peter Roskam deserves their support are invited to see for themselves: Contact the Roskam campaign and "Ask Peter" how "well-equipped" he is for the job.
