Rep. Cassidy: “I hope lessons have been learned. I don’t know yet.”

Thursday, Sep 27, 2018

* Background is here. The Illinois News Network interviewed Rep. Kelly Cassidy about Speaker Madigan’s recent Tribune op-ed

A Democratic state lawmaker who filed a complaint against Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan alleging intimidation and harassment said she hopes lessons have been learned, but she’s still not sure. […]

Earlier this year, state Rep. Kelly Cassidy, D-Chicago, alleged Madigan and several of his key allies, one of which was let go following a separate complaint, were harassing her about her former employer’s position on a bill.

Asked for her reaction to Madigan’s op-ed, Cassidy said “it was well written.” […]

Former state Sen. Karen McConnaughay, R-St. Charles, used to serve on the commission and said the body needs someone on board who’s not in the club. McConnaughay said legislative leaders can tap private citizens to serve on the commission, but haven’t.

“I think that having members of the public on the commission is one of those changes that we need to continue to look at,” McConnaughay said.

Cassidy agreed it’s a good idea.

“It seems pretty clear that we aren’t doing best practices in regards to this commission,” Cassidy said. […]

As to if things have changed under the dome, Cassidy said that remains to be seen.

“When we start to see reports out of the LIG on newer cases, maybe we will,” Cassidy said. “I hope so. I hope lessons have been learned. I don’t know yet.”

    The right thing to do is always the hardest thing to do. Changing the nature of things will take each and everyone including the shy underlings stepping forward and asking unwanted questions whenever something seems wrong. The right thing is not the easy thing.

    talk about faint praise …”Asked for her reaction to Madigan’s op-ed, Cassidy said “it was well written.” a ransom note can also be well written

    Why is she talking to IL News Network? She knows that’s a propaganda rag, best known for misquoting people, especially dems. Why risk it?
