* Background is here if you need it. This recording is courtesy of Hannah Meseil at the Daily Line. She was talking to Senate President John Cullerton and then Sen. Terry Link (D-Waukegan) was approached by reporters and Hannah quickly shifted to that conversation…
Link: I said what’s their source? You answer me. You’re a reporter. I answered the question yesterday. I’m not going to continually answer this every day of my life. I’m down here to do a job that I was elected to do and that’s what I’m gonna do.
Reporter: But how are you going to do that job if everyone suspects…
Link: Real easy! Real easy. Because you’re the only ones that are bothering me. The public’s not bothering me. I’m getting emails from all of my constituents very happy with me. ‘Stick in there.’ ‘Fight.’ And so they’re not mad at me. I don’t represent you, I represent them.
Reporter: So you’re saying you are not, you did not wear a wire.
Link: Why don’t you ask them where they got their source? [Cross talk] Hey, you know I’ve been around a long time. I know how people like to twist my words. I’m not gonna twist, I’m not gonna twist my words.
Some video is here.
