There's been a lot of talk in state government about how workers are getting paid. Now there's a lot of attention being paid to how a high profile returnee to state government is getting her paycheck. It was revealed Thursday that the Rauner administration arranged to pay former Comptroller turned Deputy Governor Leslie Munger. Half of her $138,000 thousand dollar salary has been covered by an employee health care account that is more than $4 billion behind on its bills due to the state's budget crisis. The Governor's office calls that a matter of a clerical error.
