IDOT Hiring Practices Criticized; Former Secretary Says Governor's Office Directed Political Hiring

The state inspector general says improper political hiring at the Illinois Department of Transportation started under Rod Blagojevich… but accelerated under Pat Quinn. 


A review of the practice finds as many as 250 people obtained jobs in violation of rules that prohibit hiring on the basis of political connections, instead of merit. 


Former IDOT Secretary Ann Schneider says those improper hires were directed to her by Gov. Quinn’s staff.
