Ethics reform stalls after Madigan indictment
“I think we need to resist the temptation to say, ‘This was just Madigan, one bad apple. Now that Madigan’s gone, the problem is solved,’ ” said RFI ED Alisa Kaplan. “We know in Illinois that’s not true. This is the symptom of a system that invites and encourages political corruption, and we see that constantly on the front pages of our newspapers.”
Alisa spoke with WBEZ Chicago about the ethics reforms still needed in Illinois after former Illinois House Speaker Mike Madigan’s indictment earlier this month.
