Somebody needs to take a basic political science class

* During Gov. Pritzker’s news media briefing today, a reporter submitted a question prefaced by the fact that it has been 24 hours since Pritzker had called on Speaker Madigan to answer questions or resign. The question…
Since this was a question submitted online, I double-checked with Pritzker’s press secretary to make sure she asked it accurately. She did.
…Adding… Another question today was based on a comment by Rep. Deanne Mazzochi (R-Elmhurst), who said this week that the governor and the attorney general should consider filing state charges similar to the federal charges in the ComEd probe.
Um, the governor can’t do that. (Not blaming the reporter for that one, by the way, because the person was just following up on a legislator’s comment.)
…Adding… I’m told the reporter got it wrong about Mazzochi. She apparently said she hoped the governor was also talking to the AG to see if there was information in the federal documents that could support state charges.
