Another: Christmas in July and Pat Quinn is Santa
Rich Miller, no right-winger: Where should Quinn draw line between governing, campaigning?
Reading through the report, I saw the $8.28 spent by a retired Chicago woman for food at Treasure Island. The $17.67 that a Springfield homemaker paid for Mel-O-Cream doughnuts. The $5.56 shelled out by a DuQuoin High School teacher for food at Kroger's.
So, it's quite remarkable that the governor will not admit that he ought to reimburse taxpayers for at least part of the state plane flight he took to southern Illinois the other day. Quinn flew down from Chicago to tour a facility with Southern Illinois University honchos. He also took a group of parents who had lost sons or daughters in Iraq and Afghanistan to a minor league baseball game.
But during the same trip, Quinn sat down with Williamson County Democratic officials to talk about his fundraising efforts, according to the Bloomington Pantagraph. He also dropped by the local Democratic Party headquarters to give a short speech.
Pat Quinn--he has lousy judgment about spending our dime and punts on the important stuff--like ethics and the budget.Illinois Policy Institute Spotlight on Spending

But for this Dem governor it's business as usual. Let's shake up Illinois.
We want responsible governance and real jobs.
