The fallout from an explosive story involving a top ally of House Speaker Michael Madigan. Our politics team of Carol Marin, Paris Schutz and Amanda Vinicky has that and more in this week’s Spotlight Politics.
There was political fallout in the statehouse Wednesday after WBEZ reported on a damning email sent by a top ally of Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan, who was reportedly caught up in a federal criminal probe.
In that email, former state lobbyist Mike McClain references what appears to be a rape cover-up. It has Madigan, as well the #MeToo movement, responding Wednesday.
