Minority Leader Durkin Looks For Answers On Postponements

House Minority Leader Jim Durkin is not too happy that Democrats have postponed meetings of the special investigating committee into Speaker Michael Madigan. Durkin has been very vocal about hearings in response to the Com-Ed bribery scheme, but so far there have been only two meetings. Democratic Chairman, Representative Chris Welch has suspended all committees until after the election in November.


Durkin says Representative Welch is playing politics and it is a very serious matter.



Durkin requested that the committee form to look at whether or not House Speaker Madigan should face disciplinary action. Durkin continued by saying that Illinoisans need to be aware of what’s going on.



Speaker Madigan has not been charged with any wrongdoing, and he denies any illegal activities.
