Quinn Backs Away from Description of Hiring Fix
A good-government campaigner sued Quinn in April, saying IDOT wrongly gave jobs based on clout, not qualifications. IDOT officials said they had already reclassified some jobs to protect them from future political considerations in hiring.
Asked by The Associated Press to provide records on the reclassification, Quinn's personnel agency now says it hasn't made any final decisions.
Quinn spoke to reporters Friday at the Illinois State Fair. The Chicago Democrat says the administration is doing things "in the right way." He says when reclassifications are complete, records will be released.
Quinn's opponent, Republican Bruce Rauner calls the governor's explanation a "deception."
