FILE - In this March 26, 2009 file photo, Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn stands in front of the Executive Mansion in Springfield, Ill. The third floor of the Executive Mansion has been closed because of a badly leaking roof, following a harsh winter that damaged the building's shingles. Authorities had to remove furniture from two bedrooms in the 159-year-old Italianate home in downtown Springfield to prevent water damage. There are no immediate plans to make repairs. For now, floors are covered in plastic and buckets are used to catch water. (AP Photo/Seth Perlman, File)
