Rauner wants Quinn to release hiring documents

CHICAGO (AP) — Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner is calling on Gov. Pat Quinn to release documents related to a federal complaint alleging improper hiring in the Illinois Department of Transportation.

Rauner told The Associated Press Thursday that Quinn should live up to promises of transparency by making public 47 documents that supposedly detail hiring issues.

The complaint filed this week cites a 2013 Better Government Association report claiming job qualification may have been based on clout over competence. The lawsuit was filed by attorney Michael Shakman whose longtime court case has led to bans on political hiring in the Chicago area.

Shakman's complaint says Quinn's administration has withheld documents.

Quinn says an audit was ordered after the BGA report surfaced and problems addressed

His campaign office didn't immediately have comment Thursday.
