Rep. Batinick with Reps. Randy Frese, Tom Morrison, and former Rep. Margo McDermed demanding Speaker Madigan resign in December 2019.

SPRINGFIELD – In response to the announcement of the indictment of former House Speaker Mike Madigan on federal racketeering charges, State Representative Mark Batinick (R-Plainfield) issued the following response:

“Today, Mike Madigan is finally being held accountable for the years of corruption that created a pervasive and notorious culture of corruption in Springfield. As the first sitting state representative to call for his resignation in December 2019, this day is encouraging that we will not tolerate this toxic culture of backroom deals and bribery anymore in Illinois.”
