040914 js 0860SPRINGFIELD -- Questions have been raised about why taxpayers are paying $2.4 million for a state lease so state paperwork can be stored at a vacant furniture store in Springfield. The paperwork had been stored at a closed state prison at little to no cost to taxpayers. Gov. Bruce Rauner’s administration had said the prison building was in disrepair and the paperwork needed to be moved. But the state’s prison director told members of an Illinois Senate committee this week that he had no knowledge of this. He said he would try to get some answers.

State Senator Tom Cullerton (D-Villa Park) issued the following statement regarding the latest twist in this increasingly disturbing tale of how taxpayers’ dollars are being spent by the Rauner administration.

“This sounds like the worst episode of Prison Break ever. Not only would I not watch that it, I sure as heck wouldn’t pay for it, and neither should state taxpayers. The state deserves better than this. It’s like no one in the Rauner administration knows who’s running the place.”
