As Attorney General Lisa Madigan is preparing to come to McHenry County to speak at attorney Herb Franks’ celebration of practicing law for fifty years, a press release from Paul Schimpf, the Republican candidate against Madigan, has arrived:
SCHIMPF: CORRUPTION IGNORED IS CORRUPTION ENABLED
10th Reason to Trust a Retired Marine in 2014
MOLINE, IL – Republican Attorney General candidate Paul Schimpf unveiled Reason #10 of the 14 Reasons to Trust a Retired Marine in 2014 in a joint press conference with the Rock Island Republican Party in Moline, Illinois.
Reason #10 is that Paul Schimpf will prioritize anti-corruption as Attorney General.
Schimpf is counting down these reasons leading up to the election in November.
As Attorney General, Paul Schimpf will prioritize anti-corruption efforts by instituting a policy that the AG’s office be notified and briefed within 24 hours of any alleged wrongdoing by a public official.
When Lisa Madigan first ran for Attorney General, she promised to fight public corruption.
She has been in office for over a decade during which time public corruption has only increased in Illinois.
This dismal record is conclusive proof that career politicians and political insiders don’t have the independent mindset to fight corruption.
In Illinois, corruption ignored is corruption enabled.
Illinois needs an Attorney General who will prioritize the fight against public corruption.
