Government squanders money, citizens get pissed.

"We need every citizen of this state to stand up and be outraged over the way these politicians of both stripes over a long period of time have spent our money," said W. James Farrell, chairman of the Civic Committee's state finance task force, in an interview in Bloomberg's Chicago bureau. "We need to hold them accountable."

But who do you blame? It's one thing to bring down the figurehead, but the dozens of colluding mundane middle-manager bureaucrats and state/county/township representatives, too?

I would assume after all the grumbling about "Illinois politics" subsides a bit, Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn will end up the figurehead here.
