Illinois governor scandal affects funding for care of sick kids
The $8 million in new state money that Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich allegedly tied to a $50,000 campaign contribution from a children's hospital executive would have provided medical treatment to the sickest and poorest children throughout the state. An affidavit by FBI agent Daniel W. Cain said that after the governor decided to approve the new $8 million in funding, he told an aide on Oct. 8 that he was considering reversing course because Children's Memorial chief executive Patrick M. Magoon hadn't contributed $50,000 to the governor's campaign fund.
