Rep. Meier’s Statement on Mapes Guilty Verdict in Illinois Corruption Trial

State Representative Charlie Meier issued the following statement in Illinois’ most recent corruption trial verdict concerning Mike Madigan’s closest confidant, Tim Mapes guilty verdict:

“As of today, all five people associated with former Democrat Speaker of the House Mike Madigan have been found guilty and the last person left for trial is Madigan. There is no time to wait, the Illinois Democrat majority needs to support the anti-corruption bills that my House Republican colleagues and I have sponsored year after year. We have a plan to help stop corruption in state government, but the Democrat majority won’t allow these anti-corruption bills to become law. Rooting out corruption should be something we can all agree upon, so why not start today.”
