(Chicago, IL) — Governor Rauner is ramping up his war of words with state comptroller Susana Mendoza. The Democrat Mendoza recently said the late payment penalties the state has racked up in the last two years are more than in the previous 18 years. Governor Rauner says Mendoza is part of the problem, because as a lawmaker, she voted for the defecits that created the stack of overdue bills. Rauner calls Mendoza one of a pack of rascals and scoundrels misrepresenting the truth. He says his budget would help to address the backlog of unpaid state bills.
