Letters to the Editor

BND shows the truth

Thank you Belleville News-Democrat for pointing out in your “Deep-Dish or Thin Crust” editorial that it is the taxpayer being taken advantage of by Sen. James Clayborne’s female friend Vonetta Harris.

Because Harris had good jobs, we can only surmise that her plan was to stiff the taxpayer for $306,000 in federal loans all along. I have to wonder how the state of Illinois could give a job or issue a gas card to a person who displays no sense of personal responsible. Sorry, I know why the state of Illinois would do it. I hope someone in the state would be smart enough to audit Harris’s state gas card use, as well as, Harris’s state expense reports.
