Statement from Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Andy McKenna on Sale of Thomson Prison and Escape of Prisoners in Southern Illinois

From the Campaign Office of Andy McKenna for Governor
Thursday, January 7, 2010

Today’s escape of prisoners in southern Illinois is a stark reminder of the dangers Illinoisans could face if Governor Quinn allows GITMO detainees into northwest Illinois.

“This plan, much like Governor Quinn’s early prisoner release program, is another ill-conceived, hastily arranged Blagojevich-style scheme that could put our families in jeopardy.

“I call on President Obama and Governor Quinn to seriously rethink this dangerous plan.”
