Rauner campaign gift cards raise transparency questions

Author: Editor

In the critical days leading up to Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner's election last fall, his campaign handed out thousands of $25, $50 and $75 gift cards to people helping get the vote out for him.

The Rauner campaign's use of the Visa prepaid cards was a new and unusual way to reward campaign workers. But it also raises questions about transparency, including what needs to be disclosed under campaign finance law and whether someone is still a volunteer when they get paid.

The Rauner campaign had never directly revealed buying the gift cards until July 13 — more than eight months after the election. In a campaign finance report filed with the State Board of Elections, Rauner's nearly $20 million political fund got back $54,713 in April and May through what it listed as the "liquidation of previously purchased asset — redemption of gift cards."

Durbin describes highway funding ‘madness’

Author: Editor

U.S. Sen. Richard Durbin, D-Illinois, met with local business and government leaders Friday to talk about the prospects for long-term federal highway funding.

Safety advocates urge against longer trucks on highways

Durbin said both Democrats and Republicans in the Senate are working on multi-year highway bills, which would be a change from the short-term funding measures that have been the norm for 10 years.

Kirk says he got 'carried away' in Obama Iran 'nukes' comments

Author: Editor

Republican U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk on Friday acknowledged he got "carried away" earlier this week when he accused President Barack Obama of wanting Iran to get nuclear weapons as part of a multinational agreement with the Middle Eastern nation.

Appearing at an unrelated event, Kirk said his remarks to Boston radio station WRKO were simply an outgrowth of his attempts to keep the U.S. from getting entangled in a nuclear conflict in the Middle East.

"Actually, (Obama) doesn't want to get nukes," Kirk said when asked about the Tuesday radio interview. "That was me being too carried away with, I've been pretty angry about the Iran deal."
