U.S. Representative Peter J. Roskam’s Congressional Career died on Feburary 24th at 5pm after a long battle with avoiding accountability to his constituents. At the time of his career's death, Roskam was serving his sixth Congressional term of service to the people of the 6th District of Illinois.

His career started declining on January 20, 2017 when Donald J. Trump was inaugurated as the first Fascist Ruler of the United States of America. It further declined on January 23, 2017 when the Sierra Club hosted a rally at his office. His career’s illness was first noticed there, when he failed to appear to address the concerns of his constiuents petitioning to speak with him.

It was deemed terminally ill when Roskam addressed the Palatine Township Republican Organization in a closed-door meeting at the group's headquarters. Hundreds of protesters rallied outside Feb. 4, 2017, to protest fascist ruler Trump's many unconstiutional executive orders.

At the end of that meeting, Roskam, the chicken-shit that he is, escaped out a back door, rather than addressing his constituents. Other signs of his career's illness included Roskam's habit of ignoring constiuents numerous phone calls and emails, asking that he address the many controversial decisions being made by the GOP in Washington, D.C. under the leadership of Facist Leader Trump.

From Tues, Feb. 21 thru Thurs, Feb. 23, constituents lined up at Roskam's West Chicago office, in a silent vigil, hoping that Roskam would pull through by FINALLY addressing the growing concerns from the constiuents of the 6th District, which had been growing in intensity and magnitude since January 20th.

Funeral services for Roskam's career will be held on Monday, March 6th from 9:30am-12noon at Maggiano's Banquets, where the soon to be unseated Congressman is scheduled to speak at 11:30am to the Chicago City Club.

In lieu of flowers, the constituents of the 6th District of Illinois request that donations be made to:
