Illinois has its own political Rodney Dangerfield who gets no respect. Could someone explain why Auditor General William Holland is easily the most ignored lone voice in Illinois' political barrenland? Almost monthly, poor Holland reports to lawmakers and the people of Illinois how bad off our state is financially, and no one, no one, listens to him. What's with DFHS "understating" tax revenue by $600 million in yesterday's report?
Auditor General William Holland's office on Wednesday found 15 problem areas in its annual review of the state Department of Healthcare and Family Services.
Holland says the department was months behind in reporting its financial statements for last year, and what it did report had some serious flaws — including an understating of tax revenue by $600 million.
