Madiganstan: Tribune says dump Boss Madigan

Illinois statehouse speaker Mike Madigan has been at his post for 33 of the last 35 years. The Gerrymander King is the pallbearer for what was once a great state. He's caused far more damage to ILL-inois than his fellow Chicago Democrat, Rod Blagojevich.

The Chicago Tribune reports the nascent move by House Democrats to fire Boss Madigan, one that the Trib supports.
Under Madigan's reign, the state has been circling the drain for years. Madigan, and Senate President John Cullerton for that matter, refuse to compromise with Gov. Bruce Rauner — on anything. They would rather behold the suffering of social service agencies, look on as the state's finances grow bleaker, pile debt on the middle class and ignore data proving taxpayers are disgusted. U.S. census numbers released Tuesday show Illinois with the highest population loss of any state in 2016. It's not just the weather.
Rauner, a Republican reformer, was sent to Spingfield to rebuild Illinois--only Madigan stands in the way.
