An AP article gives a highly selective view of the occupations of Illinois delegation spouses, including, yes, Mrs. Weller. (Are you listening, Kankakee Kindlings ?)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Rep. Bobby Rush, D: wife works in Illinois Treasurer Judy Baar Topinka's Chicago office.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
No wonder. Rush contributed to JBT's 2002 campaign against Tom Dart, the result of Rush's longstanding antagonism with the mayor(to whom Dart had been campaign manager).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
10. Rep. Mark Kirk, R: wife is a law school student at Northwestern University.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Not exactly. Mrs. Kirk retired from the Navy as a lieutenant commander.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Rep. Danny Davis, D: wife is retired teacher and $7,200-a-year treasurer for his campaign committee.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mrs. Davis was or is head of the West Side NAACP.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
9. Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D: husband is a political consultant with his own firm in Chicago. He has pleaded guilty to check-kiting committed in 1997 related to his former job as director of a consumer group, Illinois Public Action.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
He's a felon. Need we say more?
