West Side congressman has to pay election fines — AustinTalks

The busy life of a Congressman.  Last I recall, Congress had a barbershop.

Davis (D-Chicago) is running for re-election to Congress and also to be Chicago’s 29th Ward Democratic committeeman. But before he can get on the March 20th ballot, Davis must clear up about $1,887 in fines owed to the Illinois State Election Board, according to WBEZ reporter Sam Hudzik.

The fines, imposed on two of his committees – Citizens for Davis and Davis for Mayor – were levied because campaign money disclosure reports were filed late or not at all.

Davis knew about them, but explained in an interview last week with WBEZ that the congressional schedule has kept him too busy.

“I’m here [in Chicago] for two days, and – damn – I can’t find time to go get a haircut,” Davis told WBEZ.
