Gov defends reappointing Corrections chief
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Gov. Pat Quinn is defending his decision to reappoint the state's Department of Corrections even after complaints from workers and Republicans about ethics, crowding and understaffing.
The Democratic governor told reporters Wednesday he has confidence in S.A. "Tony" Godinez (goh-DEE'-nez). The Senate must confirm the appointment.
Quinn reappointed Godinez this for a second two-year term. He took over in 2011.
