Is Quinn Reneging On Bears-Packers Bet With Wisconsin?

CHICAGO (WBBM) – Gov. Pat Quinn says he plans on following through with his NFC Championship bet with his Wisconsin counterpart, despite the fact that it’s now seven months later.

Quinn says it’s been a busy year so far, with a contentious legislative session in Illinois.

Prior to the Chicago Bears’ loss to the Green Bay Packers, Quinn had promised Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker that if the Bears lost he would deliver food to a Wisconsin food pantry wearing a Packers Jersey.

In February, Quinn said he was holding off on his end of the deal due to the controversy over collective bargaining in Wisconsin.

Recently, Walker fulfilled his promise by handing out food at a Kenosha food pantry.

    What a buffoon. Boggles the mind how this guy was elected.

    • Jim

      Take a look at your property taxes; they are double what they should be because politicians pay unions for votes. This is the pay to play state and Bozo the Clown is the leader of the pack.

        And besides the big tax give away to those who promised jobs that never happened. They gave jobs to those in China.

  • Al Wagner

    Quinn your are a idiot you make a bet to pay up. you are nothing but a follower and not even close to a Damn Leader

    Little by little is how things get fixed. The Illinois Taxpayer has to understand Governor Quinn is trying to fix a state that has been broken for at least 6 terms. How about we give Governor Quinn at least 3 terms before we start judging his performance? We cannot cry when we have a governor who dose nothing than cry when we have one who trys? I wish Governor Quinn well and hope he can fix a system that has been broken due to corruption and abuse. I hope to find a job soon so I can be part of the solution and help Governor Quinn and his administration fix our economy. Time to put on a Greenbay Jacket and have some humble pie.

      Lotsa luck finding a job in ILLAnnoy after Quinn drives what’s left of them away; he should have that taken care of in less than one term. he won’t need three terms to do it. Try going over the border to Wisc. or Indy.
