Share the article: Lisa Madigan’s Shocking Exit From Illinois politics is Further Proof that the Madigan Brand is Toxic

Beginning of the end of the Madigan Family’s disastrous reign over Illinois

“Thanks to her father, Lisa Madigan knew her days as Attorney General were numbered. The Madigan brand is toxic for every single Illinois Democrat. This should be the beginning of the end of the Madigan Family’s disastrous reign over Illinois.” – Illinois Republican Party Spokesman Aaron DeGroot

In another shocking development on the toxicity of the Madigan brand, Capitol Fax is reporting that longtime Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan, the daughter of House Speaker Mike Madigan, will not be seeking re-election.

Lisa Madigan’s announcement comes on the heels of the departure of Mike Madigan’s second-in-command, House Majority Leader Barbara Flynn Currie.

In 2013, Lisa Madigan floated her name as a potential candidate for governor, but took her name out of consideration because of looming questions about her closeness to her father and the possibility of so much concentrated political power in one family.

There can only be one conclusion from the departure of Leader Curry and Attorney General Madigan – the Madigan brand is toxic and Illinois Democrats know it.
