If the Republicans think that Rauner is going to save the day for them, they have more faith in him than I do. Hes about as much of a Republican as John McCain. The same situation in reverse and the Democrats would have a slam dunk with most any Democrat Governor, thats why they are so good at this kind of sleaze. They get their ducks in order before they even go down this road.
My best guess is that the Democrats will come out of this controlling the board, one way or another and we all know what that means for the people living on this flood plain. Can you even imagine a similar stunt like this happening under the previous Supervisor?? Of course not. Not just no, but hell no. BUT YET HERE WE ARE. The fact that this is even being considered is really pathetic.
