Dan Beiser has betrayed the voters time and time again, backing Mike Madigan for Speaker seven times, and in exchange Madigan’s funneled Beiser over $700,000 this cycle alone. Beiser was Madigan’s sidekick in supporting Rod Blagojevich’s pension scheme that added up to $22 billion in new debt to the pension system. More recently, Beiser backed Madigan’s $8 billion unfunded budget that aimed to force a massive tax hike on Illinois families without reforms. Perhaps worst of all, Beiser voted to make sure he gets paid a taxpayer-funded salary even if a budget isn’t passed.
Besier has shown that he can’t be trusted to stand up to Boss Madigan.
