Out of town politics.
Check it out:
Illinois Democrats are backing off a plan to give $100 million toward landing President Obama’s presidential library and museum — following accusations of voting “shenanigans” and nasty Chicago-style politics, not to mention the state’s dire financial situation.
A Democrat-led House committee approved the money last week at an out-of-town hearing in Chicago with no Republicans in attendance. They instead relied on a procedural move that allowed them to use votes from a previous meeting.
“What they did last week was under-handed and sneaky and offers further proof that they no longer can be trusted with taxpayer money,” said House Republican Leader Jim Durkin.
