he's setting a standard he knows Kennedyh and Pritzker won't meet so he can complain when they don't meet it. why does a voter need to know all the businessses Kennedy and Pritzker have invested in. there are hundreds of them, if not more. too bad biss isn't raising some real issues to distinguish himself from these two.
