Rep. Elik Statement on Madigan Corruption Charges

State Representative Amy Elik (R-Fosterburg) issued the following statement after the federal indictment of former House Speaker Mike Madigan:

“This indictment makes it perfectly clear that Mike Madigan and his criminal enterprise engaged in a massive corruption scheme for years which benefited him and his Democrat associates. Madigan kept his power for decades because of his corrupt scheme of doing business in state government. The same Democrat lawmakers that gave Madigan the power for decades are the same Democrats preventing stronger anti-corruption laws from becoming law. It’s clear Madigan’s abuse of public trust has tainted state government for a long time, it’s time to write a new chapter that begins with stronger ethics reforms to root out corruption in state government.”
