Pat Quinn Just Another Dirty Politician?
Just another Illinois Democrat, after all, that Pat Quinn, governor successor to Rod Blagojevich. Seems he ain't as clean as his public image has painted him. This, from AP: Gov. Pat Quinn said Friday a campaign aide made an embarrassing mistake by calling Springfield interest groups to raise political money and denied any intention of demanding contributions in exchange for special access to him. Big hat tip to Marathon Pundit, who adds his own excellent commentary including this: Here's some history: Thirteen years ago, none other than then-Congressman Dick Durbin accused Quinn of being a ghost-payroller in the Dan Walker administration. Quinn denies that charge. The more things "change" in Illinois, the more they stay the same. By the way, Illinois, you ready for the big fat tax hike from Governor Quinn? Happy Memorial Day.
