For the holidays, Governor Rauner and his family spent two-weeks in Spain, Morocco.
On Monday he told the public that his destination wasn't revealed out of concern for his six children."I don't want it around the Internet where my kids are," says Rauner.
He fled the country the weekend of December 19 and his staff remained silent about his whereabouts and why it was a secret.
He was supposed to return from vacation Sunday, but had to come back sooner due to severe flooding in the state.
Rauner says he paid for his own vacation and didn't have taxpayer-funded security.
