Who's John Laesch?

By Michael J.W. Stickings

All you need to know is he's the Democratic challenger to Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert in Illinois's 14th Congressional district.

Well, no, that's not all. For more, see Jane Hamsher's latest "Blue America" post over at Firedoglake. Laesch joins Jane, Howie Klein, and FDL readers in the comments section.

Hastert will be tough to beat, but his role in Pagegate, as it's now being called, may provide an opening. Besides, Laesch is, in Jane's words, "a fantastic candidate with true progressive values who needs our help more than ever now that Hastert is on the ropes". He's young, he's impressive, and he's the right man for Congress.

And he certainly has our support here at The Reaction.
