Rep. Schmidt Issues Statement Regarding the Verdict of the’ComEd Four’ Trial

Rep. Schmidt released the following statement this evening following the verdict of the ‘ComEd Four’ trial:

Today’s actions in court are an indictment of the culture of corruption which was allowed to thrive under Speaker Madigan’s inner circle. We must take stronger action to restore ethical behavior in Springfield. If we don’t, the problems will only continue to worsen. Illinoisans should be furious and we must gather in one voice to demand that this kind of behavior is stopped and prevented in the future.”
