Mendoza slams Senger over veterans home email

Mendoza talks Senger, transparency

PEORIA, Ill - The state's comptroller is the first independently elected Latina to statewide office, something Susana Mendoza is proud of, but not something she necessarily believes deserves more attention.

The first-term comptroller is proud of what she's been able to accomplish thus far by partnering with the legislature on transparency-related legislation. She says it's helping the office gain the trust of the people of Illinoisans.

Mendoza is also taking aim at her GOP challenger Darlene Senger, a former aide to Gov. Rauner who made headlines last week for an email sent during her time as deputy chief of staff. WBEZ reports Senger suggested trying to pin the blame for the outbreak of Legionnaire's disease at the Illinois Veterans Home Quincy on Sen. Tammy Duckworth.
