Ethical Questions Raised in 96th House Race


Despite a state law intended to limit how much money legislative leaders can funnel into campaigns for the Statehouse, 96th House District nominee Sue Scherer got plenty of help from Democratic House Speaker Mike Madigan.

 

The State Journal-Register reports that Madigan was able to go beyond the 75-thousand dollar limit set up under that 2009 state law by giving to Scherer from two funds, one tied to his role as legislative leader, the other one linked to his personal re-election fund.

 

The transactions are legal under that 2009 law, but ethics watchdogs question whether they violate the spirit, if not the letter, of the law.
