Can lawmaker Joe Knilans survive the same test? What is the address the U.S. Post Office recorded and recognizes to deliver Knilans' mail in the 10 days prior to being sworn in? What address does his current Wisconsin driver's license show?

They assumed they were voting for a lawmaker - not a law breaker.
