Just yesterday he diverted another 1.1 billion from pensions to pay for his election-year budget. He continues to reward contributors and his lobbyist friends in ways that give Illinois a bad reputation and have attracted the investigations of the U.S. attorney.

The Governor has had four years to clean up pay-to-play politics in Illinois. He hasn't done it. The U.S. Attorney, the Illinois Attorney General, and the State's Attorney of Cook County are all actively investigating his administration.

The same polls have him losing the general election to the Republicans.
