JSS - I saw it explained that in cases like Blago’s based on criminal convictions they wait until after all the appeals are exhausted. He was suspended on an interim basis in 2011 but there was no real urgency to bring the formal case (since he’s in prison) I suppose until now, when there is a chance he might get out soon.
===Looks like another candidate announced in IL-14.===
The irony of a candidate trying to play up her immigrant roots, while also being a proponent for an admin. and policies that wouldn’t have let her family in in the first place, is not lost on me, smdh.
It looks like Governor Pritzker is taking the bull by the horns and is making some sweeping changes at Intersect Illinois this coming week.It makes sense he would install his own team to run the Rauner created group but to ensure seamless collaboration with DCEO. Any more news on this Rich?
50hhhh—that is why it is disingenuous to claim 97% will pay less in taxes. Many have calculated they will save(maybe) $75 annually but fees, gas taxes, bag taxes, etc. are increasing significantly and will take more money out of the pockets of the middle and lower class.
I get that man. It is the equivalent of giving an employee a miniscule wage increase and then letting him or her know it will cost to park in the lot, your insurance is increasing and you have to contribute more to the coffee fund.
1. Go Bears
2. Glad to see Blago will be disbarred.
3. Our taxes and fees are going up because too many people voted for politicians who refused to raise the rates that should have kept up with inflation and the State’s needs over the years (and wasting billions on failed projects and pork).
