Illinois government has been plagued by corruption for decades. In the last decade alone, ten sitting or former elected state officials have been charged in federal court with public corruption-related activities. This includes longtime Speaker of the House Michael Madigan who is awaiting trial on charges of racketeering, bribery, fraud and extortion.
The ComEd Four trial ended in four guilty verdicts on all four counts for the four ComEd officials charged with bribing Madigan with no-show jobs and lobbying contracts in exchange for positive movement on legislation favored by the energy giant.
In recent years, politicians in Springfield have stalled efforts to close loopholes in state law that allow a culture of corruption to persist. As your State Representative, I am committed to solutions that will deliver meaningful ethics reform and begin restoring public confidence in the stewardship of our tax dollars.
