Fahner Says He Misspoke About Pension Downgrade Request


Public sector unions are not buying a business leader’s claim that he “misspoke” in controversial comments earlier this year.

 

Former Illinois Attorney General Ty Fahner told an audience earlier this year that he and other members of an influential business group had urged credit rating agencies to downgrade Illinois… in order to put pressure on state leaders to pass pension reform.

 

But after being criticized for those comments, Fahner now says he “misspoke,” but that he did not make contact with the ratings agencies.

 

The “We Are One” union coalition says it appears Fahner is now trying to cover his tracks… and wants state lawmakers to investigate the incident.
