(Chicago, IL) — Governor Rauner is defending an ethics reform bill he signed, saying it’s needed to combat sexual harassment under his political nemisis, House Speaker Michael Madigan. The bill changes the way complaints are handled at the Capitol. It empowers the legislature’s inspector general to investigate sexual harassment allegations without the approval of lawmakers on the Ethics Commission. Rauner says it’s a needed response to claims of harassment against allies of House Speaker Michael Madigan. Rauner calls the bill flawed, though, saying it should cover any kind of ethics complaint, not just sexual harassment.
