053016CM0641VILLA PARK – State Senator Tom Cullerton (D-Villa Park) released a statement in response to the recent reports of malicious cyber-attacks launched in early July to a statewide computer program built to help Illinois veterans claim their benefits from the government:

“Who is in charge? This is another example of the governor’s thoughtless and ineffective management. Frankly, his administration needs to get its act together. How much more can possibly go wrong at the VA under his watch? Our nation’s heroes have put their lives on the line. Governor Rauner needs to step up to the plate and give Illinois’ veterans the services and care they deserve.”
