Shimkus is an abject moron. Which is probably an insult to all the legitimate morons out there. I live in the Congressional District in Illinois right next to Shimkus' (about 10 miles away from the boundary). So, I get to see some of his handiwork. It's certainly nothing to write home to Ma about. Ohh, and did I also mention he is a boldfaced liar? When he first ran for office, he promised the voters he would only run for two terms (when term limits was a hot topic in politics). He's now on his 7th term and running for re-election. One of his greater "claims to fame" while in the House of Representatives was concealing evidence of the pederast Mark Foley (house page scandal) from other House members. He's a Prince, alright! Right along with Fido, Bowser, Spot and Rover.
