J.B. Pritzker

Bankrolls Mike Madigan’s Chicago Machine

J.B. Pritzker and Madigan sit at the top of the Chicago political machine that protects the powerful insiders while putting the people last. Madigan runs it while Pritzker feeds Madigan his inherited fortune.

Just this year, Pritzker gave a Madigan-aligned front group nearly $1 million dollars in an attempt to increase Madigan’s power and block efforts to reform Illinois. And Pritzker secretly funneled another $200,000 to Mike Madigan and his hand-picked candidates for the state house.

But Pritzker’s record of backing the political machine doesn’t stop with Madigan. Pritzker was a key ally and fundraiser of disgraced and imprisoned Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

In fact, Pritzker was one of Blagojevich’s largest individual donors, contributing over $120,000 to help elect the most corrupt politician in Illinois history.

Pritzker will only make Mike Madigan and the Chicago political machine stronger. Illinois needs a real reformer instead.
