Accountability lacking on our leaders

Jake Griffin's column on the state agency ignoring the law showcases one of the glaring flaws in Illinois government; i.e. no one is accountable for making sure things are done right and apparently no one is responsible for being sure the state follows the law.

This is just one more example of the need for big change to be made in Illinois if we're going to avoid bankruptcy and becoming a "failed" state. Unfortunately, neither candidate for governor has acknowledged this problem, and the citizens will probably re-elect state Rep. Jack Franks and continue to support Susan Garrett, even when the quotes in this article show that neither did their homework before sponsoring legislation that's reminiscent of "the bridge to nowhere."

How much more of this needs to be put in front of our noses by the Daily Herald and others before more concerned citizens come together to begin to fix this mess?
