Letter to the Editor: Roskam Misuses Franking Privilege
Glen Ellyn Patch welcomes letters to the editor. Letters may be submitted to Local Editor Mary Ann Lopez at email@example.com.
To the editor:
I’ve just received another big full color campaign piece from Rep. Roskam sent under his signature or franking privilege. This means he is sending out campaign literature paying no postage. Franking was established to allow congress to communicate with constituents on legislative issues. These are campaign pieces and specifically not included under franking.
Rep. Roskam is very concerned with government not overstepping its bounds. I think asking the Post Office to finance your campaign with free mail is doing just that.
