Rep. Fritts Responds to Mapes Trial Verdict

DIXON – Following the guilty verdict found in the Tim Mapes trial, State Representative Bradley Fritts (R-Dixon) released the following statement:

“Today, the state of Illinois witnesses yet another guilty verdict in a state government corruption case,” said Fritts. “While I am proud that justice has been served, these trials have shown us just how deep this disturbing behavior runs. 

“Speaker Madigan’s political machine is being taken apart, piece by piece, to show the taxpayers of our state exactly what has been happening in Illinois for decades. The people of our state deserve honesty, transparency, and accountability, and I will continue to fight for ethics reform until we achieve that.”
