Lawsuit Claims Hundreds of IDOT Jobs Are Political Hires


A Chicago attorney has filed a federal lawsuit, accusing Governor Pat Quinn of improperly hiring hundreds of IDOT employees on the basis of political considerations.

 

Michael Shakman… whose lawsuit years ago resulted in bans on political patronage for Chicago and Cook County jobs… says the Quinn administration improperly reclassified some IDOT jobs as exempt from patronage rules.

 

Shakman says anyone who was improperly hired should lose their jobs.

 

An IDOT spokesman says the department conducted an internal review and found about 50 positions had been improperly reclassified… and in the future, political hiring for those positions will be prohibited.
