* Press release…
House Speaker Michael J. Madigan issued the following statement Thursday:
“I appreciate the courage it takes for individuals to come forward to share their experiences, and in doing so urge us all to do better.
“Representative Lang has already requested that the legislative inspector general immediately conduct a full investigation of these allegations and I’m hopeful she will conduct this investigation quickly and thoroughly. After consultation with me, Representative Lang has submitted his resignation from House leadership, as well as from the Legislative Ethics Commission and the Joint Commission on Administrative Rules.”
That kind of implies that Lang’s been forced out of leadership, etc.
