Daley blasts Gov. Quinn for CTA board appointment

CHICAGO (AP) — Former White House chief of staff Bill Daley is blasting Gov. Pat Quinn for nominating a powerful Cook County Democrat and township supervisor to the Chicago Transit Authority board.

Daley calls Quinn’s appointment of Thornton Township Supervisor Frank Zuccarelli (zoo-kuh-REHL’-ee) to the $25,000-a-year post “a disgrace.”

He says it violates a law that says CTA board members shouldn’t hold other government offices or jobs for which they are paid.

Daley says it also reeks of political patronage because Zuccarelli is expected to endorse Quinn for governor when the Cook County Democratic party’s slating committee meets next week.

Quinn’s office has denied there’s anything improper about the appointment, which requires Senate approval.
