The chairman of the Illinois Lottery Control Board has resigned after a Twitter controversy. Blair Garber of Evanston criticized Senator Dick Durbin for pressing the issue of President Trump reportedly using an expletive to describe African nations and Haiti. Garber responded to a Tweet from country music legend Charlie Daniels calling Durbin childish for his handling of the incident. Garber tweeted to Daniels that Durbin is from East St. Louis and he went on to describe the Metro-East by the same expletive Trump reportedly used, calling East St. Louis "The makeshift toilet (S-Hole) of the Universe, just do a Google search".
