Rauner Sees Dem Conspiracy

Governor Rauner is accusing top state Democrats of plotting against him to force a government shutdown.  Comptroller Susana Mendoza has gotten a judge's okay to dip into the same fund Governor Rauner's been using to keep government operating in the absence of a budget.  Rauner says Mendoza is trying to deplete that fund, and he accused her, Attorney General Lisa Madigan and House Speaker Michael Madigan of a political conspiracy to pave the way for an income tax increase.  He says the three are trying to create a crisis and force a shutdown.  A spokesman for Speaker Madigan called Rauner's comments "delusional babble."
