ILLINOIS -- IDOT secretary Ann Schneider has resigned in the middle of a hiring scandal. She's stepping down just weeks after news broke that her stepdaughter got a highly-paid position seven years ago. It was uncovered during an investigation by the Better Government Association. Its investigation revealed unqualified applicants getting state jobs because of political connections.
