|Member of the Illinois House of Representatives
from the 92nd district
January 14, 2009
|Preceded by||Joan Krupa|
|Born||1981 (age 31–32)|
Gordon-Booth was born and raised in Peoria County, Illinois, where she attended Limestone High School in Bartonville, and attended Parkland Community College and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
On June 29, 2000, Gordon-Booth was arrested for shoplifting. She did not pay the pertinent fines however, until January 22, 2008, shortly before her statehouse primary election. Also during her 2008 campaign, Gordon-Booth paid off a fine for driving without insurance; she had failed to appear for that court date, on June 24, 2004.
Gordon-Booth was elected in November 2008 to the seat being vacated by Aaron Schock. She defeated Joan Krupa, but Krupa was appointed to the seat to fill the remaining nine days of Schock's term when Schock became U.S. Representative for Illinois' 18th congressional district.
Representative Gordon-Booth was elected to a second term by a comfortable margin in the November 2010 general election.
