Rauner Administration Ignores Salary Hearings

(Springfield, IL) — Governor Bruce Rauner continues to take fire over the salaries he’s paying to his top aides. State Representative John Bradley is refusing calls from his Republican colleagues to end his weekly hearings into the salary issue. He contends Rauner is paying one-point-seven-million-dollars more that former Governor Pat Quinn did to fill those posts. Rauner’s office calls Bradley’s hearings a sham and has refused to send anyone to attend them. Instead, Rauner’s aides have sent letters to Bradley, hinting that he could face opposition at the polls if he continues.
