Illinois' incoming governor has asked the outgoing one to put state hiring on hold for the remainder of his term.
Even as he was being impeached, former Gov. Rod Blagojevich kept making key appointments. A new Dept. of Natural Resources chief; Barack Obama's open U.S. Senate seat.
Gov. Pat Quinn is by no means under that sort of dark cloud.
And Gov.-elect Bruce Rauner says he has no reason to believe Quinn's doing anything inappropriate.
