Pensions Edgar to so they share some of the blame for us being so far over our skis. I get that back to a Mr Palios piece. Thompson guided Illinois through reception in the early eighties build Illinois Navy Pier, Chicago White Sox, But one aspect of Thompson's legacy could not be disputed. He liked to have a good time. Paige too. Thompson, one set up beer trucks on the lawn of the governor's mansion in Springfield invited protest ng a labor union members to have a drink. He loved the Illinois State Fair, where he rode the giant slide each year at its opening. Deviating from the peace. Please tell me this guy did not take his shirt off in front of the press or in front of constituents are really honestly in front of his family. Big Jim's pension for partying led to a little controversy, particularly during his tight 1982 reelection campaign against former U. S senator analyze Stevens in the third. Cheerio. Here's the nitty gritty a pair of alleged incidents in which Thompson was drinking alcohol. The demon alcohol with college students at football games raised the ire of former governor Dan Walker. Like Stevenson, a Democrat, Walker said. My phrase with righteous indignation. I'm sure, Walker said It was irresponsible for Thompson to be imbibing in the stands during the Northern Illinois University homecoming game. Alcohol was illegal at the stadium. Booz was also banned at Hanson Field in McComb, the home of the western Illinois University, Leathernecks. Has anybody called for the renaming of the leather next year? Back to the editorial here of the piece that didn't prevent big Jim Thompson from partaking again, according to a United Press international reports. During the 82. W II, You homecoming game, Thompson sipped a peppermint Schnapps from a toilet plunger, the report stated. He also received a kiss from a bearded female impersonator named Candy who left a lipstick stain on the governor's cheek. It made good. Thompson's pregame promise to quote join all you party animals at halftime. This is from U P. I The governor had apparently turned down several toilet plunger offers before he finally relented. Quote. I can't do that. G. I hope no one tells Dan reference to Walker. More accurately. Thompson was reported to have said that because according to him, the W II you drinking incident never happened. In a 2014 interview with the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library, Thompson admitted to accepting a beer. Ah, swig of Schnapps and a shot of BlackBerry brandy at Northern Illinois. But the primary instigators of western Illinois were the peach blossoms. Ah group of students who are military veterans during WW football games, the peach blossoms dressed in drag. And roamed the stands carrying toilet plungers filled with booze. I believe my old friend. Oh, and on air partner. I believe Cisco, Coto went to double the audio from not mistaken. I'm not sure he was a military veteran. I know his brothers were And I doubt I don't I don't think Cisco drinks. And I doubt that he never dressed in drag. But you never know. Wild college years back to the peace. Big Jim said. This the group started towards us and I said, Who are they? These big guy and dresses, wigs holding the plunger came right at me. Ah, and the university president, I thought to myself. No, no, no, no, no, no, It's one thing to be handed a beer. It's another thing to be drinking out of a toilet plunger, so I refused, and they finally went away. I've said many times on the air politicians will do silly things, you know, kissing babies. That's a long tradition. I get that, but there's there's always a risk in doing that, especially nowadays. Don't put on a funny hat or a tank helmet, Michael Dukakis. Ah and never if you're You're a certain politician and you visit a certain type of church tow land that coveted a vote. Don't dance and by God, if you're gonna clap clap of the congregation at opposite the congregation, dummy, all right. Back here. The next day, The story broke about what did or didn't take place at the Hanson field. Thompson said. This is all agenda by Natalie is just not true, The governor said. My wife came down and they said Honey before you read the story in the paper. Let me explain. I did a lot of stupid things, but that wasn't one of them. Close quote. Thompson went on to defeat Stevenson analyze Stevenson in what remains the closest gubernatorial election in Illinois Modern history The margin is only 5000 votes, not about 3.7 million cast. So it can't conclusively be said if he did or didn't drink with a transvestite out of a plunger, But the incident may or may not have narrowed Thompson's margin of victory. It also can be said if the bearded toilet plunger filled with shops vote helped or hurt him eke out that victory in again that's from Nick.

But like answered weirdest thing if you're listening to the show, and you can find that audio please let me now because I was just working hours trying to find it. They can okay. I'm wondering if the airlines squelched this recording or something, I don't know. I don't know why they would because I thought they they sounded like the handled it very well. So anyway, just throw that in there because it would just kind of a coincidence that the day that we were talking about lightning strikes on the show where we actually had one in an airplane that Dana, and I are very familiar with. Remotely? Well, we should be familiar with. We're not really. That's a joke to general aviation. Instruction crashes last Saturday one. A student and instructor killed after a plane crashes in at a massive -chusetts airport. And another flight instructor dis girl injured after plane crashes into a winter haven home down here in south Florida. That's near Orlando areas in winter haven, west, okay? Yeah. Liz, tell us any common thread in these accidents. I don't think so I just I did notice an leave me I'm not trying to be eight just hear anything. The instructors were quite a bit older. I'm just wondering if that might have been a factor in either one, but I just found it quite sad that you know, they were obviously out instructing some young pilots and and on the same day. They're with these two accident. So, you know, I don't really think there was much commonality to them. But it was just kind of sad, and again sort of coincidental that both these involved instructors older instructors with younger students, right? Versa. And. Here's another item here. Sheffield bomber crash. Bypassed on the seventy fifth anniversary thousands of people cheered a flypast honoring ten airmen who died when they're playing crashed in a park seventy five years ago. The US bomber came down in cliff park Sheffield on twenty two February nineteen forty four killing everybody on board a campaign for the flypast started after a chance meeting between BBC breakfast presenter, Dan Walker and Tony folds who tends park memorial.

"Satis. For. Governor, and that's how the Republican, campaign is playing out for governor in Florida Well. Joining me now here on the AllState. Skyline studio Susanna Mendoza she is the democratic comptroller for the state of Illinois them controller thank you very much for joining me Thank you I. Was busy puking they're sorry my guy I think you'll sink after hearing that it is interesting to see. How some of these campaigns play out around the country have I don't even feel comfortable having the TV. Set on. With my five. Year old in the house I'm not I'm not kidding it is like not something I want him to. See, or traits, I want him to learn to emulate. Well you know, it's especially when. You have wealthy candidates and I mean let's face it I remember I've talked to one political scientist and was, asking them about, some, strategy that a candidate was using and, they said, well, if it was a regular funded candidate you'd say well they're. Probably wasting money except when people have so much, money? If it means switching one vote visit a waste right that's kind. Of that's kind of the nature of our. Politics today. I wanted to ask, you about. The truth Hiring, acts and I, was, trying to explain this is something that, we've seen, from, both parties for decades of governors trying to we call it. Offshoring now I guess that's the term that works, of? But basically really hiding the costs of high staffers and attributing them. To various state agencies department of transportation or Health health and family. Services those kinds of things and then you, present your budget and you say oh well look I'm saving all this money from what, my predecessor had one That's how I mean Pat Quinn was off shored Dan walker In the, industrial commission He was a chronic offender of this deceptive practice? When. He was governor yes So. But the governor didn't necessarily want to sign, this Bill he, did not necessarily he. Did. Not want to sign the spill but you know I'm glad he did he. I think it was pretty, evident that this Bill had garnered widespread bipartisan support as a matter of, fact it passed through the house of representatives unanimously and and. In the Senate I think they're only like seven people, that voted against it so we would have. If he had not signed it it would have become law on its own but that would have been the first time. In. His tenure that he let something become on its own without signing it. Right Taking action. In a pickle here does, my Bill become the first, Bill during his tenure to become law without his. Signature right, which would have been a whole different story or does he, veto and then get overwhelmingly hopefully unanimously overwritten on, a veto like we did with, the debt transparency. Act so I think he had people advising him. To? Do the right thing and I'm. Glad he he did in that we now have this practice come to an end here, in Illinois and future governors will not be able to. Continue to hide their. True cost of their payroll from the public, I mean tax, payers served and no. Other. Money's being spent and when governors present budgets they should be honest budgets and. That goes for every other, state constitutional officer I mean the governor kind of throughout this like fake, example that well this should apply to all the other constitutional. Officers but that's kind of like saying you're gonna ticket, you're going to give people speeding tickets for. Jaywalking right like the two don't go together the other state constitutional officers do not do off-shoring and there were there are intergovernmental L. agreements there on. These levels which are equal, so for example if this. Attorney general wants to have lawyers that are being. Paid out, of revenue that's because they went, into it and government agreement, with the department of revenue which is on equal, footing but when the governor for, example takes employees. Takes payroll out of other employees agencies that he. Controls? That's like saying if he's your. Boss Rick that and to take one hundred and fifty thousand dollars out of your Out of your. Budget? And I hope you don't mind. But even if you do. Mind there's absolutely nothing you can, do because he's your boss right so the power dynamic and the power shift is not equal and this is, one of several transparency bills yes raised and you mentioned you touched on the debt transparency which he did veto and you know we watch that said you think that was the. Precursor for him to sign this was the fact that he's already been through that right so, I was such a monumental it was really revolutionary Bill you think about budgeting in Illinois and for the first time in the history of the state of Illinois this. Year when they, were crafting budgets the legislature was working off of numbers that were current as of, a month earlier versus a year earlier which used to be the status quo prior to the debt transparency. Act so why anyone, in the, right mind would veto a Bill that would allow legislators the public. And certainly the, person responsible for managing, the state's bills to be able to have visibility of those bills is crazy But he did in thankfully the legislature in unanimous fashioned. In the house which by the way had never happened, in? The history in the state of. Illinois managed to override a. Governor's veto unanimously so this is, a good thing transparency is a hallmark of my of my administration the governor in his address when he signed, this in his statement said that transparency is a hallmark of his administration but I think that would certainly just based on the facts only make sense on opposite day well the. Transparency I thought was pretty significant only because everybody was basically doing guesstimates no one had actually, any only the agencies themselves knew how much they're billing was that they were withholding from supplying to you for payment Controller's office. Right and forcing the general assembly forcing comptrollers to try to do cash flow without knowing what next avalanche bills is going kind of like In the blind it doesn't make any sense and so I mean when I was in the legislature I along with all of my colleagues we just assume that the state's chief fiscal officer could see all, of the liabilities that the state had incurred, and it wasn't until I took office as, controller that I realized that that was far from the truth and I can essentially in any. Given day maybe see half of all the way abilities but I had to fly blind knows have I didn't even, know it was. Half exactly now I know it was half based on the fact that. We do have monthly reporting. Now with the debt transparency act but you're right I was essentially flying blind that, first year year plus and that's unacceptable and, it's not about me it's about me doing the job that the taxpayers I voted for me to do which is to manage. The state's fiscal accounts and it's about tax payers being able to know and have full faith and confidence as to, how? Their money is being spent and so this is what we're trying to do every day is come up with initiatives, that shine greater Transparency on the state's finances because as you know there's a. Lot of things that have. Been happening that should not have been happening with the state's finances and I believe, that in order to clean it up you, have to shine some line on it because as they say sunshine or sunlight is a great disinfectant right we're speaking with Susanna. Mendoza she is the democratic state comptroller the state of Illinois I'm Rick Pearson this.
