When State Rep. Paul Froehlich (D-Schaumburg) began moving furniture into his 2008 campaign office, he needed a way to get it from his legislative office on Weathersfield Way to the one on Wise Road. Paul Froehlich's brother Dave Froehlich - the Rolling Meadows High School Athletic Director - provided a vehicle that was big enough: a Rolling Meadows High School bus.
Former staff worker Judy McCurdy took the photos (right) from within Froehlich's legislative office in August, 2008. When confronted by Fox News' Dane Placko, Froehlich offered to refund the Rolling Meadows taxpayers for unauthorized use of the bus for a day.

State Rep. Randy Ramey wants to make sure this type of thing doesn't happen again. This week he introduced legislation making the use of a school property for campaign use a Class 4 Felony. Check out HB 4565.
