The Illinois Legislative Inspector General left office in December due to frustrations with the lack of serious reforms coming from the Legislature. The need for tough, anti-corruption legislation is self-evident. The so-called ethics reform legislation recently signed into law is a joke. We need to end the culture of the “Pay to Play” policies that have plagued the Land of Lincoln for decades. Brad will continue to push for substantive reforms such as giving the Legislative Inspector General real authority to launch investigations and to investigate activity that goes beyond just a legislator’s official duties.
