Quinn Gives Emotional Farewell

(Chicago, IL) — Governor Quinn is showing a bit of emotion as he rounds out his final week in office. He gave a farewell speech before the City Club of Chicago yesterday and had to choke back tears as he read a written tribute to his late father. The tribute remembered Quinn’s dad as a fine man who was cheerful, frank, and honest, with a character beyond reproach. Quinn says he’s tried to mimic his dad’s character while serving as governor. He lost his reelection bid in November and will serve his last day as governor on Monday.
