Mandatory Meeting For State Agency Employees Turned Into Political Rally; Watchdog Wants Investigation


A mandatory work session for employees of a state agency last spring instead turned into a political rally for top Democrats… according to a Republican activist who says there should be a full investigation of the incident. 

 

It happened last March, at a weekend meeting at the Chicago headquarters of Rainbow-PUSH, the civil rights organization founded by Jesse Jackson.  The meeting was supposed to salute workers of the Illinois Student Assistance Commission for their efforts to help students find scholarships. 

 

But that mandatory meeting included an appearance by former U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who endorsed Jackson’s son, Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr., at that event.  Former GOP governor candidate Adam Andrzejewski and his PAC, “For The Good of Illinois,” say that makes it a taxpayer-funded political rally. 

 

He is sending documents about the incident to the Attorney General.  An ISAC official confirms details of the event, and says had the agency known the endorsement would happen, it would not have required employees to attend.

 

Listen to Adam Andrzejewski talk about the case with Saturday Session's Greg Bishop below or download it at this link.
