Ray LaHood denies disparaging Illinois work ethic

U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood is disputing claims by the president of an energy company that the former Illinois congressman is the source of comments claiming Illinois workers have an "awful" work ethic.

Globe Energy LLC president David Jones said LaHood told him a few years ago that Illinois has a bad reputation when it comes to work ethic. Jones said he has found it true that Illinoisans' have a questionable work ethic.

LaHood said Wednesday that Jones' claim he made the comment was "baloney."

LaHood said he met with Jones several years ago when Jones was attempting to establish Globe Energy, an English company, in Peoria. The company provides energy saving technology to commercial firms.
Not good, especially since he used to be a Congressman from Illinois. Well we can't prove whether he said what he said to that man. Indeed it's more plausible that this Jones character probably said what he said. People from Illinois are being dumped on good right now!
