Those expensive new doors at the State Capitol are providing an opening for some political candidates.
Criticism is mounting over those historically-accurate copper plated doors that were installed at a total cost of $670,000… as part of a $50 million renovation of the 140-year-old building.
Democratic challenge for governor Bill Daley pins the blame on Governor Pat Quinn… and says the buck should stop with him. GOP candidate for governor Dan Rutherford also says that cost cannot be justified given the state’s current finances. Quinn himself says he’s “concerned” by the cost of that part of the project.
