I would hazard that the teachers and unions have a different reason than the parents.

What in the he## does that matter? A killer is on the loose. Don't know about you, but I'd rather see a murderer in custody than see a 12-year old sneaking out at night...

I don't care if the unions and democrats support the measure or not, parents should have a say as to whether their children take the tests. They're their children not the state's.

Illinois State Fair officials busted for getting free beer tickets

8 months 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.
