Here’s what defeated State Rep. Careen Gordon told the Kankakee’s Daily Journal in October:
“At this point now, I can’t ask the people who live in my district for more money until the state of Illinois shows that they are good at money management. I haven’t voted for a tax increase and I have showed I won’t vote for a tax increase until we show that.”
It’s in an article about her appointment to the Illinois Prisoner Review Board after she voted with other lame duck Democrats for the 67% income tax increase.

Gordon has moved from Morris to Chicago.
Anyone want to be that there won’t be more stories like this?
