On the eve of the State of the State address, Comptroller Dan Hynes doubled down on his attack of Gov. Pat Quinn for the Department of Corrections' unpublicized early prison release program, unveiling a new television ad that urges voters to "release Pat Quinn from his job." Watch it below:

Quinn also has a new ad out in response to Hynes, arguing that the comptroller is "grossly distorting Governor Quinn’s record" and highlighting a few unfortunate hires made by the rival campaign. Watch it:

For what it's worth, the Quinn administration is busying wrangling up parolees it released as part of MGT Push, re-arresting more than 100 former inmates for violating heightened parole restrictions. The General Assembly is taking matters into their own hands. In Springfield yesterday, the House passed a bill that would codify an informal DOC rule requiring inmates to serve at least 60 days in state prison before receiving time off of their sentences for good behavior. No broader prison reform issues have been discussed, unfortunately.
