McCombie Responds to ComEd Four Guilty Verdict

After a nearly seven week trial that included testimonies from 50 witnesses and countless FBI recordings, House Republican Leader Tony McCombie released the following statement in response to the trial’s conclusion:

“We have had an opportunity to tackle ethics in our statehouse for years. This trial has been a costly seven week reminder of just what is wrong in state government. This guilty verdict has proven that the system of doing business in Springfield is broken. This should not have been the first step to rooting out corruption in Illinois, but after today, it is clear there must be a sense of urgency in bringing back the people’s trust in state government.”
