Hello SHayes,

Thank you for the edits that you made to the pages of Sheldon Silver and Robert Aderholt! While I appreciate the time it took to make a page about Political Tracker, it appears that the information was copy and pasted directly from the site, as such it was deleted due to the potential for copyright violation. Please see our policy about copyright below. Thank you for your interest in Ballotpedia.KaitlinE (talk) 18:25, 20 May 2014 (CDT)
