Once again Jesse White has failed Illinois. The indictment against Secretary of State Official Cecil Turner is another example of the problems in White's Office.
Why did White hire Turner? Turner was a convicted felon for an egregrious scam involving stealing checks from the mail, forging signatures and cashing the stolen checks.
White dismissed Turner's criminal record and enabled Turner to engage in scams again on the taxpayer's dime.
White cannot minimize the significance of this scandal. White is a hands-off manager who will hire convicted felons with political connections to oversee his office for him.
