While being investigated for fraud while working for the ISP Merit Board, on or about January 31, 2020, Jenny Thornley filed a workman compensation claim with the insurance company TriStar falsely alleging she was employed by the Governor’s Office and JB Pritzker was her direct supervisor. After the independent internal investigation was completed, Thornley was terminated for cause for fraudulently turning in excess payroll hours among other things. After her termination, unbeknownst to her employer, she began receiving workman compensation benefits wherein she had alleged to the work comp commission she had been employed by CMS. CMS employee Kevin Richey, along with the Governor’s general counsel Ann Spillane, approved her work comp benefits notwithstanding Thornley never worked for CMS or the Governor as the documents suggested, as well as she had been found to have stolen from the taxpayers and had never been subjected to any sexual assault. When CMS finally learned of the work comp claim and tried to intervene to defend against Thornley’s claim, they were blocked by CMS and the Governor’s Office. It was not until Thornley was indicted a year later did her work comp benefits cease. Why was the Governor listed as the employer initially? Why was CMS then listed as the employer? Why was CMS and the Governor’s Office involved in this work comp claim at all? Why were benefits approved by Richey and Spillane for an application for benefits which on its face fraudulently listed the wrong employer twice, and further based on allegations of assault which have been disproven after a $500K independent investigation? Why isn’t the Attorney General investigating this fraud by Thornley along with the apparent conspiracy to commit fraud engaged in by CMS employee Richey and several employees within the Governor’s Office?
