How right you are

Billionaire Democratic Gov.-elect J.B. Pritzker, who pumped more than $171 million of his own wealth into his campaign to defeat Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner in November, now will use his own money to bolster his top government aides’ salaries, his transition team reported Friday.

Pritzker’s incoming Chief of Staff Anne Caprara will be paid a salary of $298,000 — $148,000 in state money and $150,000 more from East Jackson Street LLC, an organization Pritzker set up to “enable the governor-elect to personally compensate some staff in addition to their government salary,” a spokeswoman said in a statement.


East Jackson Street LLC.......... looks like a new org to dig into :)

I'm sure we will have a thread dedicated to "I'm sure JB will fix it" and all his accomplishments.

Rauner’s chief, by comparison, made $180,000 in 2018, according to state records. […]

Pritzker’s transition pointed to former New York City mayor and fellow billionaire Michael Bloomberg supplementing his staff’s pay with his own money. The transition says Pritzker’s move means some aides will have lower taxpayer-funded salaries than Rauner’s, and they’ll have to report the supplemental income on ethics forms.

I would think that it is illegal to pay government employees from private entities as it could create a conflict of interests.  Oh wait, this is Illinois.  Ethics forms, pfft.

We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed—...
Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.   (2 Corinthians 4 NIV)
 

On 5/25/2017, Superintendent Eddie Johnson predicted a 50% reduction is Chicago violence within 3 years of SB1722 becoming law.  The bill was signed into law on 6/23/2017. The clock is now ticking.

Can't use private money to fund the wall but you can use private money to fund government staff?

Hmmm, maybe liberals can go ahead and bypass the shutdown and just start covering the shortfall.

Make sure it has the can't ram it through option, I'm not convinced even with his majorities they can pull it off, there still is a few Democrats that work in the state.

Gift bans under State Officials and Employees Ethics Act?http://www.ilga.gov/...0&SeqEnd=500000



(5 ILCS 430/10-10)
Sec. 10-10. Gift ban. Except as otherwise provided in this Article, no officer, member, or State employee shall intentionally solicit or accept any gift from any prohibited source or in violation of any federal or State statute, rule, or regulation. This ban applies to and includes the spouse of and immediate family living with the officer, member, or State employee. No prohibited source shall intentionally offer or make a gift that violates this Section.
(Source: P.A. 93-617, eff. 12-9-03.)


(10) Intra-governmental and inter-governmental gifts.

For the purpose of this Act, "intra-governmental gift" means any gift given to a member, officer, or employee of a State agency from another member, officer, or employee of the same State agency; and "inter-governmental gift" means any gift given to a member, officer, or employee of a State agency, by a member, officer, or employee of another State agency, of a federal agency, or of any governmental entity.


Now, check this out

(5 ILCS 430/10-30)
Sec. 10-30. Gift ban; disposition of gifts. A member, officer, or employee does not violate this Act if the member, officer, or employee promptly takes reasonable action to return the prohibited gift to its source or gives the gift or an amount equal to its value to an appropriate charity that is exempt from income taxation under Section 501©(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as now or hereafter amended, renumbered, or succeeded.
(Source: P.A. 93-617, eff. 12-9-03.)


So, they give the money back and it has to go to a charity. Hmmmm, how many does JB have now?

Madigan has 400+ shell bills to play with and he can play a lot of dirty tricks.

 

Taxes will go up this session for everyone and they will lay the ground work for the progressive income tax. That way by next January they cal say "oooo its unfair the poor are suffering under this higher tax burden" as justificaiton to ram it through.
