Quinn says Republicans are pulling a political stunt just before the election.  He says they know there are contract and procurement rules that must be followed in order to get the rolls cleaned up accurately.  Quinn signed a proposal earlier this year that made more than two-and-a half billion dollars in cuts to the Medicaid program.  Cleaning up the rolls was a part of that package.
