Rauner says Quinn was ultimately responsible for protecting the kids' safety before they died, between 2010 and 2013. A Quinn spokesperson says the deaths occurred after the state made changes to its reporting requirements. The change called it neglect if a child died in an unsafe sleeping condition, like sleeping in the bed with a parent.
