You know if only you had to check a box on your insurance that says "I will wear a seat belt" and if you ever get caught without it your insurance would be canceled. Or, if you want, don't check it and let the actuarial numbers determine what you pay. Then I'd agree with you that they could get rid of the law. But when your stupidity trots on what I have pay for insurance I think making…

If the city knew anything about your electric bill that could be a consideration....but they don't. You only get two bills from the city...taxes....which pays for pensions....and your water bill.

Gov. Quinn lawyer acknowledges inspector probe

4 months ago from Associated Press

A lawyer representing Gov. Pat Quinn's administration has publicly acknowledged an investigation by Illinois' inspector general of hiring practices under the Democrat.

Attorney Brent Stratton was responding to a question Tuesday from a federal judge in Chicago overseeing a civil case.

Tuesday's hearing focused on a motion last week by Chicago attorney Michael Shakman asking for a separate investigation into Quinn's hiring practices.

The issue has arisen at an inopportune time for Quinn. He's in a tight gubernatorial race against Republican Bruce Rauner.

Judge Sidney Schenkier had asked Stratton at Tuesday's hearing if filings mentioning an ongoing investigation by the inspector general's office were accurate. Stratton responded: "That's our understanding that's correct."

The inspector general's office typically doesn't confirm the existence of investigations. Messages for agency spokesmen weren't immediately returned.
