THE CURRENT SPEAKER OF THE ILLINOIS HOUSE
of Representatives is a man named Madigan, Michael Madigan. Madigan has been in office for 45 years, 31 of those as speaker.
Forty-five years!? To me this is just ridiculous. No one should hold political power for that long.
Many election cycles he hasn’t even had an opponent. He mostly runs unopposed. No wonder he’s all smiles.
He’s so open and honest that his Twitter feed isn’t even public. It’s protected. Only those going through a screening process are awarded access.
And they wonder why corruption is such a problem. It’s a particular issue in Illinois.
