Republican gubernatorial candidate Bill Brady today released the following statement in response to a report by the Quinn Administration about its failed MGT Push program;
"The Quinn Administration's report today on Pat Quinn's secret, early prisoner release program is too little, too late, and raises more disturbing questions than answers.
Almost one full year after this secret program began, this report is months late. The report fails to provide citizens with basic answers to questions about the approval and responsibly for this program. Even worse, while the Governor has long claimed he didn't know about the existence of this program, this report clearly shows knowledge of this program was widespread at the agency level.
The Governor's failure to deliver the results of this report himself, like his failure to fire his Director of Corrections, represents a dangerous abdication of responsibility. The most solemn duty of any Governor is to ensure the public safety of its citizens.
This report, like the Governor himself, has failed the citizens of Illinois."
Brady (R-Bloomington) is a small business owner who has represented his community as state Senator since 2002. He is running for governor to bring a clean break to Illinois and build a job-growing environment. More information can be found at bradyforilliois.com.
