Susana’s Statement on the $1 MILLION Buyout Check to Munger

Press Statement by Susana Mendoza

“The only way for Leslie Munger to keep the constitutionally mandated independence of the Comptroller’s office and not subvert the state constitution in the eyes of the voters is to give back this $1 million takeover bid from Governor Rauner.”


Statement from Susana Mendoza, Democratic nominee for Illinois State Comptroller regarding Comptroller Leslie Munger receiving $1 MILLION from Governor Rauner

October 19, 2016 – What Illinois needs during the worst fiscal crisis in state history is an independent fiscal watchdog as comptroller, a separate executive office as set out in our constitution, not a wholly owned subsidiary of the Governor’s office. Governor Rauner, whom Comptroller Munger should be serving as a checks and balance to, just wrote a $1 million buy out check to his self-proclaimed wingman. By accepting it, she has demonstrated her utter lack of independence and complete reliance on her political sponsor. The only way for Leslie Munger to keep the constitutionally mandated independence of the Comptroller’s office and not subvert the state constitution in the eyes of the voters is to give back this $1 million takeover bid from Governor Rauner.
