The Illinois House held a hearing to look into why an education secretary was paid out of the Human Services budget. The hearing was in response to a Sun-Times article which revealed that Beth Purvis was getting a 250 thousand dollar salary, paid out NOT from the governor’s budget but from Human Services, which has taken quite a hit in cuts for some Illinois citizens most in need. The committee hearing today set off fireworks and Sun-Times political reporter Natasha Korecki  joined Justin to give the details.
