Governor Says Prisons Are Off Limits To Reporters

Governor Pat Quinn says Illinois prisons are no place for the prying eyes of reporters.


Quinn is defending his administration’s refusal to let the press in for a first-hand look at conditions in some of the state’s most notorious prisons. Inmates and prison guards complain that overcrowded, dirty conditions are creating a volatile, dangerous situation.


The governor says safety is the top priority of his Corrections Department… but says prisons, quote, “are not country clubs” and don’t need visitors walking around.
