The article reports on the criticism thrown by several Illinois Republican senators on the decision of Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich to award the upcoming general obligation sale to the same firm that performed a free analysis of how much a privatization of the state's lottery could raise. Financial company Goldman Sachs & Co. is the recipient of the contract. In the view of Senator Cheryl Axley, it does not exactly inspire confidence that the deal is legitimate when a company gets a contract just days after doing some pro bono work.
