Kankakee Daily Journal: Taxpayers Deserve Some Answers, Governor Quinn

From the Kankakee Daily Journal:
Illinois taxpayers deserve to know why the state wasted $55 million on a Chicago neighborhood violence reduction program. 
That's the bottom line of a lot of political-wrangling that's going on these days. Federal and Cook County prosecutors are investigating the details of Gov. Pat Quinn's Neighborhood Recovery Initiative and will determine if there are any criminal avenues to pursue. 
...What we already know about this program is troubling. Illinois voters — which have a too-high tolerance for ethical and legal lapses by officials — should question how a cash-strapped state could so callously waste $55 million. Quinn and his administration needs to supply some answers.
Emphasis, ours.
