Lt. Gov. Pat Quinn defended his running mate’s integrity Thursday, saying he saw nothing wrong with the governor’s 7-year-old daughter getting a $1,500 check from a family friend whose wife just got a state job.
“He’s always been a person who’s honest and one of integrity,” said
Quinn, appearing at a Capitol news conference. “I have confidence the
governor does the right thing all the time.”
