RB micro-managing Gaming Board

Governor appointee adds to casino panel's wounds

Chicago Tribune (Christi Parsons and John Chase)

Democratic Gov. Rod Blagojevich has dragged his feet on naming members to the Illinois Gaming Board and balked at its plea to hire more investigators, yet his administration has forced the panel to hire a lobbyist that board members say they neither want nor need.

Linda Freveletti has never been a lobbyist, but she is the sister-in-law of former state Democratic Party Chairman Gary LaPaille and has two politically connected siblings--including one who is the communications director for the National Governors Association.
What can I add?

A college degree is somewhat overrated IMO. I'm fine with hiring somebody based on life experience without a degree, but she doesn't seem have much of this either. And it's still weird to force the "Gaming" Board to hire a lobbyist they don't want.
