Illinois Governor's Day Trips Cost Taxpayers $76,000 reports (,2933,285378,00.html):

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — Gov. Rod Blagojevich's practice of flying from Chicago to Springfield and back for daily budget negotiations is costing Illinois taxpayers more than $5,800 a day, for a total of roughly $76,000 and climbing.

So why is it that the Governor isn't staying in Springfield? Is he too busy taking care of the King of the People's Republic of Chicago?
