Durkin: This is another chapter in the sad story of corruption in Illinois

House Republican Leader Jim Durkin offered the following statement after news broke that former House Speaker Michael Madigan has been indicted: 

“Illinois deserves better. This is another chapter in the sad story of corruption that has pervaded every corner of the state that was touched by Mike Madigan and his Democrat enablers and has dismantled true democracy in Illinois. Today, the same Democrats who empowered Madigan are still blocking real ethics reform just like they blocked the Special Investigating Committee that was created to get to the bottom of Madigan’s corrupt activities.”
