The Tribune's Campaign Notebook covers Christine Cegelis and DJW fight to make DuPage County safe for democracy.
Omission complaint: A week after her name was left off a voters' guide that was sent to dozens of newspapers, the Democratic candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives against Republican U.S. Rep. Henry Hyde filed a complaint Monday with the Illinois State Board of Elections.

The guide, sent out by the DuPage County Election Commission, listed Christine Cegelis as a candidate for state Senate, rather than for U.S. Congress. Hyde appeared in the guide as if he were running unopposed.

The DuPage commission called the omission a "cut and paste" error and pledged to buy advertisements to run this week in all 43 papers showing the correct candidates for the office.

But Cegelis' complaint asks the state board to investigate whether "this was gross negligence or any low-level employee engaged in intentional misconduct," Cegelis' attorney Dan Johnson-Weinberger said.
The Notebook column leads with a charming story on how Alan Keyes doesn't know what he's talking about... even when he's talking about his favorite topic.
