Big Peter is Watching You

This is not a good week for GOP debate participants. Peter Roskam, Lake County's vestigial Congressman, told the League of Women Voters that he would not participate in their Oct 16 debate, in Glen Ellyn. A League representative responded to Roskam on Twitter:
#You Can Run But You Can't Hide!
Haha, j/k.

You Can Run But You Can't Hide however is the subliminal message of this Roskam campaign mailer:
Absolutely, your LakeCountyEye wishes to hit the red DECLINE button whenever contacted by a candidate. But when Peter Roskam calls he doesn't take No for an answer:

"Sorry I missed you on my telephone townhall.
I hope you can join next time.
True enough. Having had used up all the minutes on the flipphone, your LakeCountyEye did not respond to the Roskam telephone townhall. But it was nice of them to keep tabs, anyways. Doubtless a lot of time and expense goes into monitoring who answers the phone, and who does not.

Your LakeCountyEye asked a source at the Roskam campaign. This source denied that the NSA was providing them with warrantless telecom surveillance data. The same source, however, did confirm that Peter Roskam voted to maintain the Patriot Act in 2011, and extend the government's roving wiretap program:

Note to Ops: Intelligence gathering is mostly a matter of connecting the dots.
