Rauner Wants Permission To Fire Quinn IDOT Patronage Workers

(Springfield, IL)  —  Governor Bruce Rauner is asking a judge for permission to fire the final forty cronies at IDOT. The governor’s office filed the request not long after a report came out earlier this week that said former Governor Pat Quinn parked ‘hundreds’ of people at IDOT as payback for political support. Rauner says he fired most of them, but says the final forty are protected by union contracts.
