Sen. Barickman statement on announcement of Madigan indictment

State Senator Jason Barickman (R-Bloomington) released the following statement regarding the indictment of former Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan:

“Today Madigan joins a long list of Illinois politicians who have been indicted by the federal government. This is another example of the need for stronger ethics standards and the continued need to root out corruption in Illinois government.  It also shows why we need a strong two-party system that offer voters real choices, so that they can send corrupt politicians packing. People deserve the chance to have a government that they can trust.”
