Amid investigations, indictments, arrests, allegations of pay-to-play and even a rape cover-up, Speaker Michael Madigan has stalled or stopped over a dozen pieces of reform legislation introduced by House Republican members. And yet, Rep. Monica Bristow continues to support Madigan as Speaker.
“I’m running for State Representative because our families deserve ethical leadership,” said Amy Elik. “My opponent, Monica Bristow, has stood by in silence while women are sexually harassed and even when sexual assault is covered up. As State Representative, I will fight to ban legislators from lobbying and close loopholes on conflicts of interest. Voters deserve a fighter who will deliver the long-overdue ethics reforms in Illinois.”
