Rep. Davidsmeyer Statement on ComEd Corruption Trial

JACKSONVILLE – State Representative C.D. Davidsmeyer (R-Jacksonville) released the following statement concerning the verdicts from the “ComEd Four” bribery trial:

“Nobody should be surprised by the verdicts handed down today to the these first four defendants. Their actions, working with confidants of longtime Speaker Madigan to abuse the trust of all Illinoisans, are unacceptable and cannot continue in the Illinois General Assembly. I call on my colleagues in the Democrat majority to finally show some leadership on real ethics reforms to stop this culture of corruption and root out this criminal behavior.”
