Illinois State House District 94 issued the following announcement on Dec. 6

Rep. Frese this week called for the Speaker’s resignation, and for a special legislative session to be called immediately to address corruption.

Reform-minded legislators Randy Frese (R-Paloma) Mark Batinick (R-Plainfield), Margo McDermed (R-Mokena), and Tom Morrison (R-Palatine) this week demanded Speaker Madigan resign amid FBI investigations and harassment cases that have tainted his caucus for decades.

“Under decades of Speaker Madigan’s complete control, Illinois’ culture of corruption has thrived and grown. How many of his cronies’ offices have to be raided, how many indictments have to be handed down before we all demand action?” asked Rep. Frese. “If the Speaker truly cares about the future of this state he needs to do the right thing and step down immediately.”

Rep. Frese also stressed that Speaker Madigan during the recently completed fall veto session refused to advance more than a dozen ethics reform bills filed by House Republicans. He and his Republican colleagues also called for a special session of the General Assembly to be called immediately to address real, meaningful ethics reform legislation that will help end Illinois’ culture of corruption.
