Top Law Enforcement Officials in State of Illinois and Cook County Fail to Act
Both Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan and Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez have failed to take action to punish those who engaged in the illegal campaign tactics used during the campaign leading up to the School District 208 Referendum on April 5, 2011, by Union officials and School Board members. Details of these violations were included in two letters sent to both the Attorney General and the State’s Attorney by Taxpayers United of America (TUA) on April 4th and again on April 8th.
“If the State’s Attorney and the Attorney General won’t do it, then TUA will file its own lawsuit,” said Christina Tobin, Vice President of TUA. “Election interference was important enough for the General Assembly to prohibit in the Election Code. Actions speak louder than words and so does the inaction of Attorney General Madigan and State’s Attorney Alvarez.”
