Illinois Accountant to Brand Himself as CPA

During his bid for state controller in 1998, Illinois State Senator Chris Lauzen (R-Aurora), was the subject of a negative radio advertising campaign in which his opponent stated Lauzen was not a licensed CPA.

Lauzen rebutted the ads claiming the fact that he was not licensed to perform audits was a technicality, and that he was certified as a CPA by the state of Illinois.

To drive the point home, Lauzen has decided to go to court in March to have his name officially changed to "Christopher J. Lauzen, CPA."

Lauzen expects the name change will have little effect on his personal life.
