Punking voters?

To the Editor:

I could not believe that candidate for state representative, Steve Reick, had failed to pay his state and federal taxes, especially when he is seeking taxpayer-related employment.

I checked the records and verified both Illinois and the federal government had placed tax liens on multiple occasions on Mr. Reick. Even more disturbing was when I discovered that Mr. Reick is a tax attorney – a tax attorney that failed to timely pay his own taxes.

I decided to check out his campaign records and discovered that on more than 10 occasions Mr. Reick charged his campaign for gas purchases in Wisconsin. Ten separate fill-ups for gas not even bought in Illinois.

Is this guy seriously a candidate? Is this an elaborate punk on the voters? Either way, Reick is a bad joke.
