Illinois Review: Legislative scholarships flowed to top union lobbyist's kids

Illinois Review: Legislative scholarships flowed to top union lobbyist's kids

This one really stinks. Shows the arrogance and depth of corruption between Unions and Illinois. Also, Warner Todd Huston's take over at the Prairie State Report.
Steven Preckwinkle, the Director of the Illinois Federation of Teachers, not only got a free pension for life paid for by the taxpayers of Illinois after being a “teacher” for only one day, but the Chicago Tribune has discovered that Preckwinkle also got free college tuition for his kids and a nephew, also courtesy of the taxpayers.

Through a spokesman, Preckwinkle said that his undeserved pension and the freebie education for his kids was perfectly legitimate and that “political connections played no role” in his amazing good fortune. If you believe that I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.
What fools we look in Illinois Warner. Tolerating this garbage from those proporting to serve.
