Here’s the 77-36 roll call that was taken yesterday:
McHenry County’s other state representatives, Mike Tryon and Jack Franks voted on the side of openness.
When the bill was first up, Beaubien voted against it.
The bill now will be voted upon by the Illinois State Senate. Senator Pam Althoff voted in favor of restricting the Freedom of Information Act the first time around.
That was just six months after it was passed.
Senator Dan Duffy did not.
Althoff is a former teacher in the pocket of the teachers unions. This tells you how she is going to vote in any close votes.
Beaubien is the classic RINO: a Democrat in everything but name, and lacking the guts to stand up and admit that he’s a liberal.
