Actually I do, even if it is wishful thinking.

May no one ever have so much power, for such a long time, ever again.

Madigan wrote so many laws and wrote so many house rules to make the House Speaker very powerful that his successor WILL have so much power and for a long time.

 

Here is the new boss, same as the old boss.

Unfortunately for those of us still here, nothing will change.

Isn't he still the state party chairman, so he still controls the party agenda, all the money, and all the people? He just doesn't get a state paycheck for it anymore.

Even after he leaves the House, Madigan will also still control two other massive political committee funds: the Friends of Michael J. Madigan, which stands at more than $13.5 million and the 13th Ward Democratic Organization, which has more than $2.6 million.

 

Madigan is in line for an annual pension of $85,117.32 upon retirement after paying $351,013.73 into the General Assembly Retirement System over 50 years. His annual pension would jump to $148,955.28 on July 1, 2022.

Just two days after personally anointing his successor in the Illinois House, Mike Madigan on Tuesday abruptly urged the 13th Ward employee to step down from the post due to “alleged questionable conduct.”

 

Madigan was instrumental in engineering the appointment of state Rep. Edward Guerra Kodatt, 26, on Sunday, giving him 56% of the weighted vote. But a little more than 48 hours later, the former Illinois House speaker suddenly switched gears.

 

“After learning of alleged questionable conduct by Mr. Kodatt, it was suggested that he resign as state representative for the 22nd District,” Madigan said late Tuesday in a joint statement with Ald. Marty Quinn (13th). “We are committed to a zero tolerance policy in the workplace.”

 

The statement did not elaborate on the nature of the “questionable conduct.”
