“These state police are glorified chauffeurs. I think it’s a total waste of taxpayers dollars.”
Jim Tobin interviewed in an WLS-TV ABC7 News exposé of Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s “Secret Service”!
Jim’s footage was aired in Part Two of this Special Eyewitness Report on Gov. Blago’s gross misuse of the Illinois State Police, and his quote was featured on WLS-TV and WLS radio promotions for three days prior to that. Early last year and again this summer, we recommended that the state police be disbanded as part of our $5.4 billion State Budget Savings proposal. The Illinois state police are nothing but glorified keystone cops, a political force that duplicates service provided by local and federal law enforcement.
