CHICAGO — Today, top Madigan aide Tim Mapes was sentenced to prison time after being found guilty of perjury and obstruction of justice by lying to prosecutors to protect Mike Madigan during corruption inquiries.

Illinois Republican Party Chairman Don Tracy released the following statement following the sentencing:

“In my now 3 year tenure as Chair of the Illinois Republican Party, we’ve finally seen Illinois Democrats face retribution for decades of corrupt practices. This is a fitting sentence for lying to federal prosecutors to protect your boss, one of the most powerful people in this state, and all Illinoisans look forward to Mike Madigan finally facing his day in court to be held accountable for the culture of corruption he built in his decades in power.”
