During tonight’s Democratic Governor debate on ABC 7, J.B. Pritzker again refused to call on Mike Madigan to step down as Chairman of the Democratic Party of Illinois in light of sexual harassment scandals in his political organization. This despite calls for Madigan to go from fellow candidates Chris Kennedy and Daniel Biss.

Illinois Republican Party Spokesman Aaron DeGroot issued the following response:

“J.B. Pritzker said he’d stand up for Alaina Hampton and other victims. But he won’t stand up to Mike Madigan. He knows Madigan is his only hope of winning the primary and he’s not brave enough to upset the apple cart. Instead, Pritzker has questioned the facts surrounding Hampton’s case and is seemingly content with Madigan and his operatives maintaining their status quo. You can’t have it both ways, Mr. Pritzker: either you believe Alaina Hampton or you are protecting Madigan, the man she accuses of covering up her harassment.”
