- Gov. Pat Quinn’s budget office spokeswoman will be making nearly 50 percent more money after receiving an additional job title this spring.
Kelly Ann Krapf, a former broadcast reporter who uses the name Kelly Kraft, received a salary boost from about $71,000 to more than $105,000.
- Last year, an Associated Press analysis revealed that Quinn had given 43 salary increases averaging 11.4 percent to 35 staffers over the previous 15 months. The raises were handed out at the same time Quinn was proclaiming a message of “shared sacrifice” and calling for deep spending cuts because of the state’s financial crisis. A Quinn spokeswoman said half of those salary increases were the result of a promotion or a change in job title with an added workload.
But hey, enjoy that income tax hike, corporate tax hike and double digit unemployment Illinois! And you better not even think about owning a gun for personal protection, you dirty serfs. Don't be getting ideas above your station in life.
