everyone should fund their own retirement ... yes. But government gets different terms, retires early with open ended promises.

So ISBE wants more state money. How about all the money owed to the schools from previous years? That alone would go a long way for some of the financially struggling districts. I hold no hope of seeing the $750M ever trickling down when there are several hundred millions in arrears.

State Rep. Farnham resigns legislative seat after federal raid

The Elgin Democrat cites "serious health issues" in resignation statement

From from dailyherald.com:

State Rep. Keith Farnham resigned his legislative seat Wednesday, just days after federal officials searched the Elgin Democrat's home and office.

A one-sentence letter released to Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan gave no reason for the resignation, but Farnham cited "serious health issues" in a statement released shortly after.

Farnham was not present in Springfield for lawmakers' session Wednesday.

"This is to notify you that, effective immediately, I hereby resign my position as representative in the General Assembly for the 43rd Representative District of the state of Illinois," the letter said.

Farnham has said nothing about the search by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations officials last week, and federal authorities haven't said what they were looking for.

In his statement, Farnham said, "I have been battling serious health issues for a number of years and the coming months will require my full attention."

Farnham's Elgin office was dark Tuesday, and a woman answering an intercom at his home apartment said he was unavailable. He has not returned numerous calls for comment.

In the statement, Farnham said he also will withdraw as his party's nominee for re-election to the Illinois House, a position he won Tuesday as he had no opponent in the primary election. No Republican has filed to run for the seat, but local party leaders could appoint a candidate in the coming months.
