Shadow Congressman

Your LakeCountyEye has been up all night, generating fake Trump Tweets: But your LakeCountyEye only got the attention of the Daily Herald when Peter Roskam refused to participate in a League of Women Voters debate. Impersonating a League representative, your LakeCountyEye sent this Tweet to Roskam:
The Daily Herald printed this story the next day:
Could there be a debate between 6th District U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam and his Democratic opponent for the first time in eight years? A coalition of suburban League of Women Voters groups is pushing hard for one.
Lester: Will Roskam debate for first time in 8 years?
Those who do not know what Peter Roskam looks like, and care to see him in the flesh, should reserve a seat at the Oct. 16 League of Women Voters debate in Glen Ellyn.

Haha, j/k. Lake County's vestigial Congressman Peter Roskam has not debated a Democratic opponent since 2008. This is what a Roskam spokesman told the Daily Herald:
"As you know, he is regularly available to his constituents on the telephone, at town halls, at meetings around the district, and at his local office," spokesman David Pasch wrote in an emailed statement.
Lester: Will Roskam debate for first time in 8 years?
Sources say that Peter Roskam will accept the League's invitation provided he is allowed to debate via speakerphone. The same source told your LakeCountyEye that Roskam looks a little like Charlie's Angels ...
