Crain’s Chicago Business is reporting that four more advisers to Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner are out Friday.

It marks the end of a week in which there’s been big turnover in Rauner’s office.

Rauner has a new chief of staff and a few other top advisory positions in his office who come from the hard-line advocacy group Illinois Policy Institute, which has a legal arm that’s sued over same day voter registration and union work rules.
