Statement on US Attorney Indictments of Speaker Madigan Allies Connected to ComEd Bribery Scheme

State Rep. Darren Bailey had this to say this morning on the news of four people indicted by the U.S Attorney’s office against key Madigan allies including Mike McClain, Anne Pramaggiore, John Hooker and Jay Doherty.

“When you have one man who for nearly four decades has controlled his party’s organization and the Illinois House of Representatives which means controlling the purse strings and the flow of legislation on public policy…that’s too much power for one person! With more than enough legislators in his own Caucus saying they won’t vote for him for Speaker again, I believe Mike Madigan has only one option which is retirement from the Illinois House.”
