Among those voting for the bill was Rep. Lou Lang (D-Skokie), who said he was doing so because "these are disgusting, violent and horrible games."
Yet, Lang said, "The truth of the matter is [the bill] is unconstitutional as drafted."
"The truth of the matter is that it is vague," Lang added. "The standards are vague. The penalties are vague. The interpretations of the statute are vague. And because of that, courts all over this country have held bills that look just like this unconstitutional."
Oh hooray, so you obviously put your political career ahead of the consitution?
I already did my part, i wrote and was printed in the chicago daily herald, and I wrote to my congressman. They want to piss on the constitution? They're gonna find they're asses on the street come next election.
