State Week: Ethics Watchdog Steps Down, Critical Of Policymakers
On this episode, we discuss the resignation of Carol Pope. The former judge resigned as Legislative Inspector General and had some parting shots for lawmakers. Pope said the recent legislative session showed "true ethics reform" was not a priority.
Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed legislation to end deceptive interrogation by police. It's a tactic some argue has led to wrongful convictions. And the Federal Election Commission has limited Congresswoman Robin Kelly, the Democratic Party Of Illinois Chair, from certain fundraising activities. What does that mean for the party?
Our panel discussion includes Sean Crawford, Charlie Wheeler, Hannah Meisel and Jerry Nowicki of Capitol News Illinois.
