Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan today issued a warning to his fellow Democratic legislators … on sexual harassment.
In the past month, Madigan has let go of two key political operatives. Last week, he made public some information about complaints against people in his government office.
Now, he says because of recent meetings with staff, he felt compelled to make the rules “crystal clear" to legislators. He says sexual comments, advances and relationships with staff are inappropriate — whether or not the staffer works for that legislator.
