Because you are in a car and driving. So they ask to see the Drivers License. Standard at any traffic stop, should also ask for the insurance card.

I agree on that and made no claims otherwise. I didn't mention in a car, you are. If there is a seat belt check and see I have it on, why do they need to see my ID? Probably because it's more than a seatbelt check in reality. Kind of like the dog that "hits" on a car that has no drugs in it can be used to search the car.

Do you expect the voters to make a difference? I don't. Can those actually paying taxes simply move out of Illinois? Where would these hypocrites get their pay checks then? Once the taxpayers are gone, the over taxed businesses would follow, they couldn't get tax breaks, only thing left in IL is the politician, the overworked gov't worker, and the subsidized IL resident!

Illinois State Fair officials busted for getting free beer tickets

1 month, 3 weeks ago from Associated Press

An Illinois state fair official is without a job following a scandal over free beer tickets. 

Investigators say former DuQuoin State Fair Manager John Rednour asked a beer vendor to give him up to two-thousand free beer tickets in 2012.  

The tickets were worth between four and eight-thousand dollars, which is more than the state's Gift Ban allows. 

Rednour resigned back in January and agreed to stay off the state's payroll for at least five years. 

The Illinois State Fair Manager was also caught up in the free beer scandal.  Amy Bliefnick was fined a-thousand-bucks and ordered to serve a two-day suspension without pay for taking unsolicited tickets from beer vendors last year.  

There's no evidence that she actually asked for the tickets, but she took them as part of a "long-standing practice" and handed them out to senior members at the Department of Ag.
