IL GOP Chairman suggests changing Illinois to 'Madiganville'
Illinois Republican Party Chairman Pat Brady issued the following statement today regarding the Chicago Sun-Times report that House Speaker Mike Madigan and Attorney General Lisa Madigan supported or were involved in drafting legislation affecting “payday loans.” The bill, signed by Governor Quinn, ended up benefitting lobbyist Jordan Matyas, who recently married Mike Madigan’s daughter:
“Why don’t we just change the name of our state from Illinois to ‘Madiganville?’ It’s obvious we’re all here to serve the Madigans. Mike uses his position to benefit his law practice, he gets his daughter elected to statewide office and now he helps out his new son-in-law.
“Can the argument for change this November be any stronger? Time for a clean break.”
