    Thanks Elliot but this is old news. These crooks in Illinois have been getting away with things like this for so long it is not funny. Those who want to fight don’t have the means because we are too busy out there working trying to make ends meet. Only the few vote against them because the others blindly believe they can do no wrong. Democracy doesn’t work for those who are not political zombies or party mongers.

    More money leeched from taxpayers, while doing a crappy job. Typical. Sad. And you are right. We pay for it
