Michelle Mussman is one of Madigan’s most loyal legislators, having supported him for Speaker four times. Madigan called on Mussman to vote for the most unbalanced budget in Illinois history, and Mussman obliged, supporting a budget that would have required a $1,000 tax on Illinois families to balance. Mussman even voted to make sure she gets paid before schools and social services. It’s no wonder Michelle Mussman has backed Mike Madigan’s agenda and consistently supported him for Speaker, since he has funneled close to a million dollars into her accounts. Mussman is bought and paid for by Madigan.
