Report: IL Supreme Court Justices Got Campaign Funds From Organized Labor

The Illinois Supreme Court justices who will decide the fate of pension reform in Illinois have benefited significantly from campaign donations made by many of the key players in that political fight.


That’s according to a report in the Chicago Sun-Times.


Six of the seven justices have taken contributions from organized labor… which opposes the pension plan that passed last month… or from business groups, which support the proposal.


Several justices have also received donations from a political action committee controlled by House Speaker Mike Madigan, who sponsored the controversial pension plan.
