Rep. Friess Issues Statement Regarding the Verdict of the ‘ComEd Four” Trial

Rep. Friess released the following statement following the verdict of the ‘ComEd Four’ trial:

“The man who used to lead the House of Representatives, Mike Madigan, as well as those in his inner circle, were charged with crimes usually reserved for mob bosses and gangsters. Despite this, Democrats have shown no willingness to tackle ethics reform in a meaningful way. For the future health and prosperity of Illinois, this cannot be allowed to continue. To stop corruption in Illinois, we need to pass strong ethics reform. Without immediate action by the General Assembly, corruption will continue to thrive in state government.”
