But Quinn won't be boasting about this sale:
From the Southern Illinoisan:
After not finding any takers among local governments or universities for the eight airplanes and one helicopter, officials offered the aircraft to the general public through an eBay-style online auction.By that time I'm hoping Quinn will be a lame duck.
At the close of the bidding Monday, however, only two of the planes received bids.
Illinois Department of Central Management Services spokeswoman Alka Nayyar said the unsold planes will be re-listed for auction with a new closing date of Dec. 15.
