SEIU Donates To Madigan Controlled Fund Same Day of Special Session


A major union that represents a number of state workers denies any connection between last week’s failure of pension reform and the union’s $97,000 campaign donation to a fund controlled by House Speaker Mike Madigan.

 

The Chicago Sun-Times reports the donation from SEIU was reported on Friday, the same day that Madigan’s House failed to take action on measures aimed at getting the state’s soaring pension costs under control.

 

A union spokesman says the donation was made weeks ago and the fact that it was reported to the State Board of Elections Friday was just a coincidence.
