Was Comptroller Judy Topinka Trying To Help Her Son?

Illinois Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka, a Republican, stood beside Gov. Pat Quinn at the July 7 public event in Downstate Washington, announcing $11.6 million in state money to boost communities hit by the 2013 tornados.

When the event concluded, Topinka, who may not have known her microphone was still live whispered to Quinn about her son, asking if the Democrat could help “... get my son to SIU? He loves to teach. He’s got the qualifications.”
Quinn responds: “I know him, too.” 
Topinka then clearly repeats: “SIU. SIU. SIU,” before slapping Quinn on the shoulder.
Gotta tell you: If you can't help your own son, who can you help?
