Rep. Butler Statement of the Indictment of Former House Speaker Madigan

Assistant House Republican Leader Tim Butler (R-Springfield) issued the following statement in response to the federal indictment of former Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan:

“The corruption surrounding Madigan has been obvious for years,” said Butler. “He did everything in his power to stonewall the Special Investigating Committee when he realized his abuse of power would be exposed. The only question left is for every member of the Democratic caucus who supported him over the years to explain what they knew about it and why they kept supporting him.”
