Chicago, IL – The Illinois Republican Party announced that it has launched an online petition for Illinois citizens to call on Illinois State Senate President John Cullerton and his fellow Democratic State Senators not to rubber stamp Governor Pat Quinn’s appointment of former State Representative Careen    Gordon to an $85,000/year position on the Illinois Prisoner Review Board.                             

Gordon was defeated for re-election last fall. During her political campaign, Ms. Gordon campaigned strenuously against Quinn’s tax increase, vowing to oppose it and stressing that it was the wrong direction for Illinois. Then Gordon lost the election.  She reported to Springfield for the lame duck session and on January 11th, her last day in office, she cast the deciding “yes” vote on Quinn’s record-breaking 67% tax increase.  Three days later, on January 14th, Quinn filed paperwork appointing her to an $85,000 a year spot on the Prisoner Review Board.

John Cullerton and the Democratic State Senators under his thumb should stand up and stop the State Senate from rubber stamping this appointment,” said Illinois Republican Party Chairman Pat Brady. “Otherwise, this will be another example of Democratic corruption at the expense of Illinois taxpayers.”

Republican State Senators have already expressed their opposition to this appointment.
