Governor Bruce Rauner has had a number of battles with Comptroller Susana Mendoza and there is another one brewing. Last week Rauner was a guest on a radio show in Chicago when the host laughed that Mendoza should have her mouth taped shut to keep her quiet. Mendoza says Rauner laughed along. According to her it’s a pattern of behavior that shows Rauner has had the wrong priorities from day one.
Mendoza says the fact there is no budget shows specific groups that they don’t matter. She says that no matter what may be joked about on the radio she won’t stop being heard.
