Rauner Fails to Lead as New Legionnaires Outbreak Hits Quincy
Chicago, IL – Yesterday, the Illinois Department of Public Health reported that two more residents at the Quincy Veterans’ Home have been infected by Legionnaires’ disease.
The report is the latest in a years-long crisis for Bruce Rauner, whose fatal mismanagement led to the deaths of 13 residents. As the failed governor has come under increasing scrutiny, he has repeatedly sought to dodge responsibility through spin, cover ups, and desperate attacks on the staff at the home.
“Thirteen veterans and spouses died at the Quincy Veterans’ Home and Bruce Rauner is still failing to get this crisis under control,” said Pritzker campaign spokeswoman Jordan Abudayyeh. “This is fatal mismanagement from a governor who is either unable or unwilling to lead as innocent families pay the price.”
