* From the Illinois News Network, a project of the Illinois Policy Institute…
Gov. Pat Quinn has spent about 10 percent of his time in Springfield during the past six months.
The Democrat governor found himself absent from the Illinois capitol on all but 19 days since August.
* But you have to read between the lines to get a real idea what the actual timeline is…
The vast majority of the governor’s time has been spent in the Windy City, where he logged 148 days between Aug. 1 and Feb. 7 […]
Of the 19 days the governor did spend in Springfield during that same time period… [Emphasis added.]
* The beginning of August through the first week of February? You mean the totally dead time?
* The General Assembly was in session three days between January 1st and February 7th. The GA was in six days between August 1st and the end of December.
So Quinn was actually in town more than twice as many days as most legislators?
Who woulda thunk it?
