(Springfield, IL) — Governor Rauner is accusing some of Illinois‘ top Democrats of conspiring against him in order to force a state government shutdown. The governor made the allegations yesterday against Attorney General Lisa Madigan; her father, House Speaker Michael Madigan; and Comptroller Susana Mendoza. His comments followed a pair of lawsuits by the attorney general and Mendoza relating to state workers’ pay and the budget crisis. A spokesman for Speaker Madigan dismissed the charge, calling it “delusional babble.”
