St. Rep. Tom Demmer continues calling for the special legislative investigating committee to meet and actually investigate. The Dixon Republican said yesterday it’s been 81 days since the committee was formed to look into allegations against ComEd and implicating House Speaker Michael Madigan. And the committee has met just twice—the last time nearly two months ago. Demmer says investigating corruption might help restore trust in Illinois government.
Four people were indicted this week on charges of trying to influence Madigan with favors.
