Jay Hoffman is one of Mike Madigan’s most loyal followers. Hoffman has voted a whopping 12 times to make Mike Madigan the Speaker. He voted in favor of Madigan’s 67% income tax hike with no reforms. He voted for the Madigan-Blagojevich pension scheme that increased debt by up to $22 billion. He voted with Madigan to make sure politicians get paid before schools and social service providers. Last, but not least, Hoffman voted for Madigan’s $8 billion out-of-balance budget.
Jay Hoffman is the poster-child for what happens when politicians follow Mike Madigan’s commands. That’s why the only way to get rid of Mike Madigan is to get rid of politicians like Jay Hoffman.
