BGA responds again to Madigan accusations

The head of the Better Government Association fires back at accusations from Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan.

Madigan claims the group has a partisan agenda.


At the Union League Club on Wednesday, the B.G.A.’s Andy Shaw spoke to the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce. He defended his work, and insists he’s not partisan.

“The B.G.A.’s been doing this for 90 years. We ruffle some feathers. But, it’s totally non-partisan. We have no political agenda. The only agenda is better government, and if Michael Madigan believes in that, he should join us, rather than making us out to be the enemy,” said Shaw.
Madigan hasn’t made any public comments about the spat so far on Wednesday.

    Madigan should not make any comments about anyone else. He has, along with His buddies, bankrupt this state. The crooked democrats are to blame and He is their leader. Illinois has the lowest credit rating in the whole U.S. thanks to our crooks in Springfield.

    Madigan hates it when his back room underhanded dealings are brought to light.and he reins supreme. He is untouchable and can't be dethroned because of his machinations.
