Some Question State Job Appointment as Political Payback


Republican state senators say the appointment of a former congressional candidate to a high-paying state job looks like political payback.

 

Governor Pat Quinn named Dr. David Gill to that $125,000-a-year job as assistant director of public health.

 

The appointment ended talk that Gill might seek a rematch with GOP Congressman Rodney Davis, who narrowly defeated Gill last November.

 

The Republican senators say it looks like Quinn used the taxpayer-funded job to clear a path for a different opponent to take on Davis next year.
