  • With little fanfare, Attorney General Lisa Madigan recently confirmed she plans to run for re-election in 2018. If she wins and completes another term, she will finish her 20th year on the job.

    Twenty years is a long time. The year Madigan was elected attorney general, the trajectory for Illinois governance bent skyward. Citizens felt more confident in state leadership after a felony-prone governor, George Ryan, departed.

    Democrats assumed control of the legislature and governor's office with a new governor, Rod Blagojevich, vowing to reform a government nakedly intertwined with contract steering, bribery, patronage, obstruction, lying and money-grubbing. Nearly 80 defendants, including Ryan himself, were convicted as part of an exhaustive federal probe that put a focus on the Illinois culture of political sleaze.

    Illinois voters swept Madigan into office along with dozens of reform-minded lawmakers on promises they would clean house. Ethics topped the list of concerns for voters. Trust. Not budgets or pensions or debt. Madigan, who was then a 36-year-old first-term state senator, spent most of her campaign reassuring voters the attorney general role would not create conflicts of interest with her father, Michael Madigan, now the longest-serving House speaker in the nation.
Well, she certainly lived up to that promise. Not only hasn't she "create[d] any conflicts of interest with her father," she hasn't created a single conflict of interest with the entire Chicago Machine or the Illinois Combine. Not a single corruption investigation has crossed her desk while Illinois continues its death spiral into insolvency, abetted by massive corruption and crooked contracting.

I will believe the feds will clean up corruption in Chicago as soon as they convict Granny Clinton and her Democrat posse for her email system full of Top Secret information.

Instead they will try to find some mysterious nonexistent Russian connection.

You've got that right.

I hand delivered files showing embezzlement from a nonprofit corporation whose name and property are being used to defraud. At this point, more than $4 million has been taken. But no interest whatsoever. What's the excuse? "It's something that should be handled as a private matter."

And she will win re-election time and time again. Just like Preckwinkle and Dart will. I used to defend the citizens of this state,county,city against charges that they are blind, ignorant and stupid and that they deserve the government we have. Now I am of the opinion that that you reap what you sow, that you get what you deserve. The citizens of this state,county and city get exactly what they deserve because they are blind,ignorant and stupid. They WILL vote these misfits back into office time after time. The bad thing is people like us have to suffer because of it.

Wait. I'm confused. I thought that was the whole point to getting elected. 1. Lie to the people 2. Get elected 3. Steal from the people

Didn't Balgo go to jail for bribery?

Troll reader: It has always bothered me that the purported chief law enforcer of the state has a father that is the chief legislator. The fact that this could happen within the law and more importantly, voters would sign off on this arrangement should tell all that serious problems exist in this state that will never be resolved.

This woman is told by the party what days she should show up to work and when. I ask my democratic friends what has Lisa done while occupying the office and all they can say is she has championed the rights of women and children. I mean her term is laughable and criminal activity in the state flourishes.

Lisa is complicit in her father's ongoing
Criminal Enterprise. She is doing exactly
what she was installed in that office to do.

C'mon... I mean, after all, how can anybody
make prosecutorial hay out of a little girl
using her elected and sworn office protecting
and running interference for her Daddy and
his friends for 20 years and nary a peep
be uttered until VERY late in the game?

Can you imagine the righteous uproar and outrage
if say for example, a mere unclouted "public servant"
on the CPD payroll were to engage in 20 years of
support in furtherance of a family member's ongoing
criminal enterprise?

The outraged howls, demands of "somebody do something,"
and the resulting joyous ululating as the "mere unclouted
public servant" swings to and fro on the gallows of
public outrage hastily erected on the ashes of their
life, career and reputation, would be the quite natural
and expected series of events.

All manner of blue ribbon panels convened along with
the usual "reforms must be made" posturing by a
supine and spineless media that is only animated
when it seems the subject of the whorishly pious/
wholly disingenuous Op-Eds seem to not have the
power to punch back and make it hurt/leave a mark.

Illinois has been ruined beyond the ability of
decent, law abiding people to fix or repair.

The course of correction via the ballot box has
artfully jiggered and gamed so it only fix seems to be
is that the blood of political criminals and their
agenda pushing msm aiders and abettors may
have to be spilled by the railroad tanker car full
in order for the upright law abiding citizen taxpayer
to take their hijacked government back.

Joe Birkett would not have been any better. His list of donors were all crooked....minus the people who wanted him to move on.

Plus...after he lost...he started his game plan for appellate judge positions...He had it made.

DuPage is just as dirty as Cook...only whiter...

Don't forget...Birkett was the guy who negotiated the TSS data collection with Obama...

I was against the reelection of Lisa Madigan and I made my position loud and clear; Lisa Madigan has turned a blind eye and a deaf ear toward official corruption in this state. The one loud example is all of the fraud within the former Illinois Legislative Scholarship grants that has been clearly documented by various media outlets. Madigan did nothing about this. Not one investigation, not one lawsuit to recover fraudulent dispersed funds. Nothing. Silence. Former Gov. Quinns handout of 50 million to the political class for " violence prevention" with most of the money going for pay and benefits to the political class ( Dorthy Brown and husband, anyone?) State grant money going to connected groups with no plan, no accountability no reports of effectiveness or even need. The democrats just scream " it is for the children" , or" it is for the needy). Maybe amd maybe not. How about the patronage scandal in the Department of transportation under Quinn. Not a word from Lisa. Lets not even talk about fraud in campaign spending. But, I would bet the sheep voters of Illinois will re-elect Lisa because she is a democrat or a women or just because. Lisa Madigan is compromised and should not be reelected to any public office in this state.

The FOP Endorsed Madigans that is.
Incompetency is a prerequisite for any former community activist turned politician, especially in Illinois.
The best arguements for Term Limits is Daley and Madigan.
As I recall the FOP-PAC wants to be nice-nice with the Madigans, so we have a friend in Springfield.
How's that working out, is the CPD Pension shored up yet or are they still working on ways to "reform" the rules?

Besides that the ILL AG jumped on and initiated the LacQuan-O-Rama bandwagon, it's no accident she leans in line with the rest of the far-right and has more interested being a part in any Anti-Police rhetoric.
So when the carpetbagger comes a knocking on the PAC endorsement door at FOP, will Graham Crackers ask..."what have you done for us lately"?
Newer hires take notice - you should be contributing something into your Deferred Comp account now, because the day will come again when the Dems are going to get your pension reduced in order to provide for Sanctuary Entitlements. They are doing a good job at not meeting and stalling the pension funding obligations under the Law, a Democrat majority Constitutional amendment will insure all obligations will eliminated.
Mike Madigan will not cease to reduce public pensions until he drops dead.

The only thing a Madigan wants is that their Empire never be Diminished or Impaired.

Never Trust a Democrat.

Jesse Jr and the beautiful Sandy pled guilty to stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars. The bargained down from several charges including failure to report/pay federal income taxes. How come Lisa never charged them with failure to report/pay the state taxes on the hundreds of thousands of dollars involved? Was this a pass for some dems?

5/21@11:35am - When i first read this post I was wondering if anyone would remember our previous FOP leaders fawning over little lisa. Surprise! Only one comment from the readers recalls how we endorsed this snake. A woman who was ready to fight the IL constitution preserving our pension guarantees to the US Supreme Court, but she unexpectedly backed down and let the IL Supreme Court stand.
Brothers and Sisters - 2018 should be the year that our FOP refuses to endorse the 2 candidates on this ballot who directly affect law enforcement : Madigan and Dart. Too bad this ballot doesn't include Foxx/Prickwrinkle but we have to start educating our friends and families how these two lawyers have obstructed our mission for several terms and how lisa and her daddy are decimating our pension.
Forget what Donahue and Deano have said about the Madigan midgets being our friends - actions speak louder than words.
i humbly recommend that the membership is surveyed or polled prior to rendering an endorsement. As punishment for their previous deceit, Deano and Donahue should be forced to tally the results without any pay or stipend. Under Graham's supervision so the dunce duo won't try to rig the results!
