Submission + - The tech world rejoices: a Congressman who can cod (cnet.com)

Gat0r30y writes: CNet is running a little piece here about House of Representatives newest addition, Bill Foster. He won a special election in Illinois this last Saturday and he is a code geek. He has apparently coded in Assembly, Fortran and VB. Well, I guess I can excuse the VB just this once since he also did some Integrated Circuit design work that went into the particle accelerator at Fermilab. How did he win you ask? Well, he coded up a program to get out the vote, knocking on the right doors on election day got him his narrow victory.
