Kass today on Speaker Madigan. How much longer does Illinois put up with this guy? Forty years in Springfield is enough. Go Madigan, please go.
And meanwhile, I've learned there's a new chief of staff at the Regional Transportation Authority, an agency that relies on Boss Madigan's Legislature for much of its funding. RTA Executive Director Joseph Costello confirmed in an email on Tuesday that Jordan Matyas will be paid $160,000 a year as chief of staff. Surely the new chief of staff will have input on procurement and personnel. Who is Matyas?
He's Mike Madigan's son-in-law, married to Lisa's sister.
What's that smell, Mike? Anchovies or banana peels?
