Robert Breuder, the President of the College of DuPage had a wonderful plan.
He would invite Governor Pat Quinn to speak at the Commencement Ceremony in the hope that the Govenror would release $20 million in building funds to subsidize a yet-to-be determined new building.
Pretty much a typical way of thinking in Illinois.
Quid pro quo.
But he ran into a problem in Adam Andrzejewski, who ran for Governor in the GOP Primary in 2010, promising transparency.
Andrzejewski filed Freedom of Information requests for documents and got incriminating emails.
After they were published by his organization,For the Good of Illinois,Andrzejewski called out the desired arrangement.
Today, the Daily Herald reports that Quinn backed down.
He said the “tactics” used by the junior college President were unacceptable.
