Members of the House GOP remain upset that the special investigation into Speaker of the House Mike Madigan has been delayed until the election is over. The decision was made by the committee chair Democrat Chris Welch. Committee member Republican Grant Wehrli says the Governor needs to become involved in matters otherwise handled by lawmakers.
Welch has said the process was political and has scheduled the third hearing on Madigan and how he might have been involved with bribery and ComEd until after the November elections.
Madigan hasn’t been charged with any wrongdoing by law enforcement.
