FILE - In this Aug. 18, 2011 file photo, Illinois Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka participates in a rally during Republican Day at the Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield. Topinka and Illinois State Treasurer Dan Rutherford, both Republicans who have criticized government spending and want to consolidate it have handed out pay raises to dozens of employees during a fiscal crisis. The salary increases were discovered in an analysis of payroll records by the Better Government Association, a Chicago-based nonprofit group which showed the findings to The Associated Press.
