Governor Repeatedly Calls Lawmaker Lawsuit to Restore Pay An Insult

A group of Illinois lawmakers filed suit late last week to restore their pay. Former Illinois Comptroller Leslie Munger earlier this year put state lawmaker pay in a waiting line with everyone else waiting to be paid by the state. Governor Bruce Rauner Monday blasted the lawsuit and urged newly-elected state Comptroller Susana Mendoza to keep lawmaker pay on the state's waiting list;

Rauner told the Illinois Farm Bureau meeting in Chicago that Mendoza should hire her own attorney to fight the lawsuit rather than having Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan take up the case.
