Illinois Governor’s Office Made Secret Payments To Former Campaign Aide After She Was Caught Stealing From Taxpayers, Lawsuit Says
Political influence scheme alleged in the very agency dedicated to stopping political patronage
The office of Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker arranged to have the state secretly pay a former campaign aide who had been fired from her government job for stealing after she threatened to use her connections to get out of trouble, a state official claimed in a newly unsealed legal filing.
The state attorney general filed to dismiss the whistleblower’s lawsuit, which would mean allegations of improper political influence will not be probed. But the now-public allegations tell a disturbing tale of corruption and patronage in the Land of Lincoln.

Democrats will ignore this simply because those involved are Democrats.
It disappeared! Attack me and that’s what happens.
Pritzker staffer Jenny Thornley threatened her boss to quit investigating her for stealing taxpayer funds. She said you don’t know who you are messing with and I’ll get the Governor involved. Well, she did!! Her boss lost his job and the Governor illegally gave her another $70,000 of taxpayer funds. Ya boy!! That’s your Governor!!! What a peach!!
Am sure a lot of things like this go on at the county and state level we just don’t hear about.
