The Madigans: Dad should quit if daughter runs
Governor and speaker must be a check on each other’s power
Attorney General Lisa Madigan says she might run for governor of Illinois in 2014. She told a reporter at President Barack Obama’s inauguration she is “among those people” weighing the race.
If she does jump in, a different Madigan should jump out.
It will be in the best interest of the people of Illinois – and in the best interest of Lisa Madigan – that her father, Michael Madigan, step down as speaker of the Illinois House.
