GOP: Quinn Passing Out Cash Without Accountability
(Chicago, IL) -- Illinois Republicans aren't letting the headlines fade about Governor Quinn's troubled anti-violence program. They say he may be trying to pull the same stunt again. He apparently hid 20-million-dollars in the Department of Labor budget this year, then split it up and handed out more than half-of it in the first three weeks of July. Republicans say the money is being diverted to other agencies then doled out under the premise of helping at-risk communities. That's almost identical to the 55-million-dollar program Quinn initiated just before the 2010 election, which is now under state and federal investigation.
