Joan Gore Krupa was a Republican member of the Illinois House of Representatives.[2] She represented the 92nd Representative District for 9 days in early 2009, after her predecessor, Aaron Schock, was sworn in as U.S. Congressman for Illinois' 18th congressional district.

Before running for the Illinois House, Krupa was the president of the Heartland Community Health Clinic in Peoria, Illinois, and was previously a teacher.[citation needed]

State representative[edit]

Krupa ran for the state 92nd Representative District seat in the November 2008 general elections, but lost to Democrat Jehan Gordon. However, in the same election, 92nd District incumbent Aaron Schock won the seat of Illinois' 18th congressional district.[3] The 111th United States Congress was sworn in on January 5, 2009, and Schock vacated his state representative seat upon becoming United States Representative. The Republican Party, on the advice of Schock, appointed Krupa to serve the remainder of Schock's term in the Illinois House of Representatives,[3] and she was sworn in about 90 minutes after Schock officially vacated.[4] The term expired on January 13.[3]

The first vote (HB1671) on the impeachment of Rod Blagojevich was taken during Krupa's time in office.[3] She signed on as a sponsor of the impeachment bill and voted in favor of impeachment.[5] Krupa also introduced a bill (HB6734) to put stricter limitations on payday loans in Illinois, but the bill expired with the end of the 95th General Assembly.[6]
