ILLINOIS (WCIA) — A high-ranking staffer under Speaker of the House Michael Madigan is out of a job.
Long-time aide Kevin Quinn was fired by Madigan after being accused of sexual harassment.
Madigan released a statement Monday:
In November, a courageous woman made me aware that a high-ranking individual within my political operation had previously made unwanted advances and sent her inappropriate text messages.
He served under Madigan for nearly 20-years. This is the second sexual harassment accusation to emerge in the Capitol since October.
