Governor Quinn and his GOP opponent Bruce Rauner are sparring over who can and can't be trusted when it comes to hiring practices. The two appeared on the same stage yesterday to field questions from the "Chicago Tribune" editorial board.  But before they could get to the meat of issues like taxes and education, they started swinging about hiring scandals that are lingering for each candidate.  Rauner slammed Quinn on IDOT patronage while Quinn says Rauner hired former Rod Blagojevich conspirator, Stuart Levine, to handle Illinois pension business.  He says Rauner kept his mouth shut about the hire and took the money.
