Exec who said he was leaving Illinois runs as Romney delegate in Illinois
Wednesday, Jan 11, 2012 - Posted by Rich Miller
* Champaign News-Gazette political columnist Tom Kacich (not online, so no link) reported today that James Liautaud, the CEO of the Jimmy John’s chain, is running as a Mitt Romney convention delegate, in Champaign.
Sure enough, he’s listed on the State Board of Elections’ website…
* But, wait, I thought Liautaud said he was moving to Florida and had already enrolled his children in school there to avoid Illinois’ higher income taxes? From this past January…
So, he doesn’t want to live and pay taxes here, but he wants to run as a convention delegate here? Bizarre.
