Gov. Bruce Rauner won’t be required to sit for a deposition in a federal lawsuit that alleges Illinois House Speaker Mike Madigan put up “sham” candidates in legislative races, after a federal judge ruled Monday that there’s no reason to prove “Gov. Rauner hates Speaker Madigan.”
“You can turn on a TV and see the ads,” U.S. District Judge Matthew Kennelly said during a status hearing, arguing that anyone who’s not fully aware of the Republican governor’s animosity to the Democratic speaker is “like Rip Van Winkle and you just woke up.”
The removal of Rauner reduces Madigan’s attorneys’ deposition list to just one man: millionaire investor Blair Hull. […]
Hull is being deposed because lawyers are trying to show that he had the most participation in funding the Gonzales campaign.
Hull was also a 2014 Rauner contributor.
