Illinois State Legislative Candidates

Dear Supporter,

Campaign for Liberty gave candidates for State House and Senate an opportunity to provide a straight answer to the following questions.  The candidates’ answers can be seen below the list of questions.


  1. Do you oppose the use of unmanned devices being used for law enforcement and used in order to fine citizens?
  2. Do you oppose state and local funds being used to support private organizations, which are lobbying government?
  3. Would you support legislation that would require the courts to inform juries of the principle of Jury Nullification?
  4. Would you support a bill that would remove the state and local government’s power to use eminent domain to confiscate citizen’s private property to transfer it to another private party for economic development purposes?
  5. Will you support legislation that would protect citizens’ right to film public officials performing their official duties, as long as they do not interfere with official business?
  6. Will you oppose all efforts to equip State police with “extraction devices” that download all of citizens’ cell phone information without a warrant?
  7. Will you support legislation that would allow TSA agents to be charged with sexual assault if they use invasive “pat-down” procedures?
