Lawmaker Wants Portrait Of Madigan Banned

An Illinois lawmaker wants to ban a portrait of former Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan from being hung in the state Capitol.

There are paintings of the six past speakers hanging in the Illinois House. With Madigan set to go on trial in April on a federal racketeering indictment, a resolution sponsored by State Representative Ryan Spain would ban any painting of Madigan from being hung in the statehouse and adjoining Capitol complex in Springfield.
