Ann Callis Lives In Missouri, But Is Running For Congress In Illinois?

Ann Callis and her husband.  Both residents of Missouri.
There are dozens of stories about a Congressional candidate running for office and living slightly outside the district.  

But, Ann Callis?  Who is running for Congress?  Her story isn't one of those.  Nope...her story is about living in an entire different State!

From the Post-Dispatch: (which you'll note is in St. Louis, MO)
A review of real estate records shows Illinois congressional candidate Ann Callis signed documents listing her as a resident of Missouri at the same time she was a judge in Illinois. 
According to copies of mortgage records obtained by the Lee Enterprises Springfield bureau, the former chief judge of Madison County signed multiple mortgage papers identifying her residence as a home on Forest Street in Kirkwood. 
It is not the first time Callis has faced questions about her real estate dealings. In November 2013, the Lee bureau reported the former chief circuit judge had previously failed to pay property taxes on her Troy home, as well as two homes owned by Holloran or the couple in Arizona. 
The records show her signature appearing on a notarized 2008 mortgage agreement for one of the couple’s Arizona homes, as well as a 2006 deed transfer for property in Laguna Beach, Calif. 
The latter includes a statement identifying Callis and Holloran as “residents of the County of St. Louis, State of Missouri.” A 2005 deed for a second home in Scottsdale, Ariz., also lists their address as in Kirkwood. 
In 2004, records show Callis was added to the Forest Street deed. The document begins, “I, Ann Callis, of the County of St. Louis, State of Missouri ...”
And she wants to be your representative in Congress???
