Durbin and Quinn Announce Sale of Thompson Prison
Senator Dick Durbin and Governor Pat Quinn figure a way around federal regulations and agree that the Federal Government will buy theThompson Correctional Center. This purchase has been stopped several times in the past by tea party involvement and elected officials because it was intended to house all the current terrorist prisoners held in Gitmo. The question still remains to be answered is whether or not Thompson will be turned into Gitmo Illinois.
According to Senator Dick Durbin and Governor Pat Quinn, who announced the sale Tuesday, federal officials went around Wolf and acted on their own authority in order to carry out the sale.
