Guv's got to clean up Ryan's library mess

An unknown benefactor submitted this:

Chicago Sun-Times columnist Steve Neal writes about the debacle over the leadership at the Abraham Lincoln library. Rehashing the surprisingly sordid history produces quotes like, "In a vengeful act, after removing his name as a contender for library director, Newtson used his influence as Ryan's chief of staff to sabotage the library and museum. Newtson diverted half of the library's operating funds--$1.5 million--to the former Public Policy Institute at the University of Illinois at Springfield. Most of its programs have nothing to do with Lincoln."
