FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: State Rep. Chris Miller’s Statement on Guilty Verdict in Tim Mapes Trial

Charleston, IL… State Representative Chris Miller (R-Charleston) recently issued the following statement regarding the guilty verdict in the corruption trial of disgraced former Speaker Michael Madigan’s chief of staff, Tim Mapes:

“It’s no surprise that disgraced former Speaker Michael Madigan’s longtime chief of staff, Tim Mapes, has been found guilty in his corruption trial,” said Miller. “Illinois Democrats have fostered a culture of corruption that encourages using mob-like tactics against political opponents, intimidating, and bullying anyone and everyone who threatens their unrelenting grip on power. This behavior is disgraceful and has no place in our society. Let’s hope that the Democrats’ criminal enterprise continues to be uncovered, rooting out corruption that has plagued Illinois politics for far too long.”
