Why won't media ask Quinn about $15,000?
As Illinois Lt. Governor Pat Quinn continues to rail against utility companies, he fails to get a single question from the media about the $15,000 in utility money he benefitted from a week before the election.
Rod Blagojevich and Quinn ran as a team and Ameren sent Blagojevich $15,000 on Oct. 30. That money helped run TV commercials that got Quinn elected.
Yet Quinn continues to whine and complain about utility rate increases and utility executive pay and the news media dutifully reports on his press conferences without mentioning the hypocritical contribution.
