Obama Presidential Library Vote Erupts In Controversy


An Illinois House committee has unanimously approved spending $100 million to establish the Obama Presidential Library and Museum in Chicago after President Obama’s term is up.  But that 9-to-nothing vote is causing controversy. 

 

Illinois Public Radio reports only five members were in attendance at the hearing Thursday.  Lawmakers used a procedural move that declared the attendance roll call from Wednesday’s committee hearing would serve as the vote for Thursday’s consideration of the library funding.

 

A Republican lawmaker who is now listed as a “yes” vote for the Obama library and museum… even though he wasn’t present… says he thinks the move was illegal.
