Facts be Damned!

Topinka continues to pander to the business community in hopes of adding to her anemic fundraising totals. After last months campaign finance reports showed Judy Baar Topinka trailing Blagojevich 8-1 in the money department she has started pandering to the business community by pledging to fix imaginary problems.

Illinois businesses created more new jobs last month than any other month in more than six years.

The 29,800 new jobs in July were the largest for any single month since October 1999, according to figures released Thursday by the Illinois Department of Employment security. The numbers are based on employment statistic surveys on
every firm in the state, IDES officials said.
