GOVERNOR J-B PRITZKER AND ILLINOIS HOUSE REPUBLICANS ARE CALLING ON HOUSE SPEAKER MIKE MADIGAN TO ANSWER QUESTIONS ABOUT THE COMMONWEALTH EDISON BRIBERY SCANDAL. 

 

A GROUP OF MADIGAN'S ALLIES HAVE BEEN INDICTED FOR THEIR ROLE IN THE ALLEGED SCHEME TO CURRY FAVOR WITH THE SPEAKER AND PASS LEGISLATION THAT WOULD BENEFIT THE COMPANY. SPEAKER MADIGAN ISSUED A STATEMENT DENYING ANY WRONGDOING, BUT GOVERNOR PRITZKER SAYS THAT'S NOT GOOD ENOUGH.

 

 

G-O-P MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE COMMITTEE LOOKING INTO POSSIBLE WRONGDOING, INCLUDING REPRESENTATIVE DEANNE MAZZOCHI OF ELMHURST, ECHO THOSE SENTIMENTS.

 

 

A NUMBER OF DEMOCRATIC LAWMAKERS SAY THEY WILL NOT VOTE FOR MADIGAN AS SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE COME JANUARY.
