The Chicago Sun-Times reports Sunday that Igor was hired in 2003 for a $150,000, six-month state job to deliver I-PASS transponders to grocery stores. But within three years, the Illinois Toll Highway Authority extended the company's contract without rebidding it, and increased its monetary value to $7 million.
