Springfield, IL. (ECWd) –

The candidacy petitions of the incumbent of the 10th Congressional District, U.S. Congressman Brad Schneider (D) were objected to this afternoon.

The objectors are challenging incumbent Congressman Brad Schneider because he has listed on his statement of candidacy and petitions that he is living under a home that is under construction in Highland Park, when he really lives in Deerfield. The objection alleges Schneider listed an address that he did not live at as his home address on his Statement of Candidacy and each of his petition sheets.

From the objection:

  • The Objectors state that the Nomination Papers are insufficient in fact and law for the following reasons
  • The Candidate has filed a false Statement of Candidacy and has made a false statement on each and every one of the petition signature sheets to the affect that he resides at “349 Woodland Road in the City of Highland Park, Zip Code 60035.” At all times relevant, there has been no valid certificate of occupancy from the City of Highland Park. The Candidate’s false representations of his residency are in violation of 10 ILCS 5/7-10, making the nomination papers invalid and the Candidate disqualified from, and ineligible to seek and serve in, the office the nomination papers are filed.
  • The Candidate has filed a false Statement of Candidacy and has made a false statement on each and every one of the petition signature sheets by stating that he is a qualified voter at “349 Woodland Road in the City of Highland Park, Zip Code 60035.” At all times relevant, the Candidate has not resided at that address and his voter registration at that address is invalid. Such false representations as a qualified voter are in violation of 10 ILCS 5/7-10, making the nomination papers invalid and the Candidate disqualified from, and ineligible to seek and serve in, the office the nomination papers are filed
  • See the applicable portions of the Election Code (here) and the Property Tax Code (here).
