Before the NFC Championship game, Governor Pat Quinn made a bet with Governor Walker of Wisconsin that if the Bears lost the game, he would volunteer at the Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin food distribution center to fulfill his losing wager with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, wearing a Packers jersey, and Walker placed the same bet, except, obviously wearing a Bears jersey.
But Quinn has backed out of his bet, for now.
Quinn's reasoning, “In light of the very serious issues that the state of Wisconsin is trying to work through right now, the governor felt the timing was not necessarily ideal and that it would be more appropriate to find a better date,” Quinn spokeswoman Annie Thompson said.
To top it off, it was never planned that both Governors would appear together at the food bank.
Please, when does helping to feed the hungry get under cut by a politics?
To top it off, Quinn is appreciative of the 14 Wisconsin Democrat Senators of staying, dinner, and enjoying Illinois fine hotel establishments "as long as they need to be here"
Lesson learned, never bet with a liberal!
