Natalie Manley is a classic Madigan politician who says one thing in her district, but votes for Madigan’s agenda in Springfield, voting him as Speaker twice. Manley and Madigan worked together to pass the most unbalanced budget in Illinois history, a budget that would have forced a massive tax hike on Illinois families. She also supported Madigan’s plan to hold funding for local schools hostage in order to bail out Chicago Public Schools. Even as Manley and Madigan force a budget crisis in Springfield, they work to protect themselves. Manley voted to make sure she gets paid in the case of a government shutdown. It’s no surprise Manley is so close to Madigan – she’s accepted over half a million dollars in his special interest money. It’s time for Manley to finally show some independence from Madigan.
