Sick of corruption? End it this November.

Spend a minute and think about all of the problems in Illinois. You might need more than a minute, but one thing is clear. At the center of the issues that can be fixed, one roadblock remains.

The recent news from federal prosecutors regarding ComEd firmly plants Mike Madigan at the center of a bribery conversation. It’s the latest problem that proves Illinois lawmakers cannot be trusted with more power.

In November, folks in the Prairie State will be asked to decide if Madigan should have more power to raise taxes as he sees fit. If there’s anything that we have learned it is that he is out for himself, out for his riches, out for more power and not out for the taxpayers of Illinois.

If you’re sick of corruption, you have a chance to end it in November and keep your money out of the hands of Madigan and his cronies.
