Michael Madigan Obama corruption crony implicated in US v Commonwealth Edison, Illinois pay to play, Obama still protected?

“Why did the Illinois Senate Health & Human Services Committee, with Obama as chairman, create and push Bill 1332, “Illinois Health Facilities Planning Act,” early in 2003, which reduced the number of members on the Board from 15 to 9, just prior to rigging by Tony Rezko and Rod Blagojevich?”…Citizen Wells

“Why did Patrick Fitzgerald and the US Justice Department wait until December 2008 to arrest Rod Blagojevich?”…Citizen Wells

“Before it’s over, Dead Meat’s nemesis, House Speaker Mike Madigan, D-Lisa’s Daddy, will certainly exert his influence here. The Lord of Madiganistan doesn’t want you to look too closely, but he always has something to say about who gets to wear the black robes. He’s chairman of the Illinois Democratic Party, and those boys still decide who wields the gavel from the county level to the Illinois Supreme Court.”… John Kass, Chicago tribune December 1, 2011

 

Michael Madigan is a longtime speaker of the Illinois House and state Democrat Party chairman.

He also had dealings with Barack Obama.

Madigan is identified as Public Official A in the following Northern District of Illinois Eastern Division filing July 16, 2020.

The Illinois General Assembly was composed of two houses: The House of Representatives and the Senate.

“Obama role in corrupting IL Teacher Retirement System pensions”

“Mr. Rogers said the investment managers also solicited support from Michael J. Madigan, the powerful Democratic speaker of the Illinois House. In 2001 and 2002, Mr. Madigan and Mr. Obama — at times joined by the investment executives — made formal pitches before three of the state pension boards.”

From the Tony Rezko trial March 10, 2008.

“Ziegelmueller asked Hayden about a 2003 e-mail exchange with Lichtenstein, then the governor’s top lawyer, in which Wilhelm made recommendations for the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board.
The name of Barack Obama, the Democratic front-runner for the presidential nomination, also appears in the e-mail as a member of a strategic team reviewing hospital board matters with the governor’s staff when he was a state senator. The hospital board was scheduled to be revamped in the summer of 2003.

Obama was then chairman of the Senate Committee on Health & Human Services. Other legislative leaders, including Madigan, were part of that review panel as well, according to the e-mail.”

Obama’s role in the rigging of the IL Health Planning and Facilities Board.

From Citizen Wells February 23, 2020.

“Jan. – Aug. 2003:  Obama was Chairman of the IL Senate Health and Human Service Committee.
Feb. 20, 2003: Senate Bill 1332 “Illinois Health Facilities Planning Act” filed. Reduced members of IL Health Planning and Facilities Board from 15 to 9.

(Rezko Trial March 13, 2008; 3:09 p.m.)

“Almanaseer was appointed to the planning board in 2003 on Rezko’s recommendation. Prosecutors contend he became part of a five-member voting bloc on the board that followed Rezko’s wishes. Almanaseer said board Chairman Thomas Beck tried to steer his voting.

“He said, ‘If you just don’t know which way to vote, vote the way Mr. Levine votes because that’s the way Tony would want the vote to go,” Almanaseer recalled, referring to Stuart Levine.”

Spring 2003 – Nov 2003: (Rezko trial March 11, 2008; 10:58 a.m.)

“Jennifer Thomas, a former aide to Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s patronage chief Joe Cini, continued on the stand Tuesday morning and gave a few more insights into those regular Monday morning meetings she and Cini held in 2003 with Antoin “Tony” Rezko at his office.”

“Thomas said Rezko floated the names of several people to sit on the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board, which the government claims Rezko corrupted with the help of board member Stuart Levine. And Thomas said Rezko at one point made it clear that he wanted to see Levine reappointed to the panel, which was being overhauled by the governor in 2003.”
May 21, 2003: Senate Bill 1332 passed by House and Senate.
June 27, 2003: Blagojevich made this the effective date of Senate Bill 1332.
June 2003: (Rezko trial March 10, 2008; 4:16 p.m.)

“Ziegelmueller asked Hayden about a 2003 e-mail exchange with Lichtenstein, then the governor’s top lawyer, in which Wilhelm made recommendations for the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board.
The name of Barack Obama, the Democratic front-runner for the presidential nomination, also appears in the e-mail as a member of a strategic team reviewing hospital board matters with the governor’s staff when he was a state senator. The hospital board was scheduled to be revamped in the summer of 2003.
Obama was then chairman of the Senate Committee on Health & Human Services.”

  1. For those of you blinded by the BS from the mainstream media or not familiar with this case, Blagojevich, not Obama was the presumptive presidential candidate in 2006. Within one year it was Obama.The Blagojevich Administration came under investigation by late 2003 and Tony Rezko was at the center of much of the corruption.Stuart Levine carried out the orders of Rezko and Obama was closely tied to both men.Federal investigators soon knew of Obama’s ties to the corruption but for some reason focused more on Blagojevich and chose to wait until after the 2008 elections to arrest him.Why?“this guy is more Tony’d up than I am. …. they got the Chicago media to f…ing make me wear Rezko more. To f…ing dilute it from him.…Rod Blagojevich wiretap November 12, 2008“BLAGOJEVICH: You know, Axelrod and Obama’s people, you know, clearly turned, you know, got the Chicago media to make Rezko all about me. And hardly about…HARRIS: Yeah, in other words, they focus their,they focus their attention on you. They couldn’t make it go away so the bes-, next best strategy is deflect it.BLAGOJEVICH: Right.HARRIS: This is somewhere where it, it’ll satisfy the, the hunger of the beast, being the media.BLAGOJEVICH: Right, right.HARRIS: Yeah, it makes sense. It’s not a stretch. If I’m, if I’m his message advisor, media advisor or whatever, operative, yeah I’m gonna try to feed the beast by giving ‘em something else to eat on.”…Rod Blagojevich wiretap November 12, 2008

    CW………
    ………..A number of years ago I personally had some dealings with Lisa Madigan when she was the Illinois AG. I had contacted her regarding the underhanded practices of a unregulated gas supplier which was then an Illinois Corporation. She said she would look into the matter, but down through the years she never replied to me. I finally was forced to take my complaint to the Indiana AG. At least he had the decency to reply to me, but was unable to assist me because the natural gas supplier was an UNREGULATED supplier, and as such was free to impose any rate they chose. Finally I took matters into my own hands and switched back to our prior supplier NIPSCO who still is a REGULATED supplier. We had been suckered into buying our natural gas from the Illinois company who was unregulated in Indiana. The supplier eventually went bankrupt. har har……they had it coming. As for the Madigans……..all of them can take a long walk on a short pier.!!!!!

  3. CW……….
    ………..could the cup be filled with antecedent?

  4. WITH RESPECT……
    ………to Mr. Sullivan I am praying that he gets what he has asked for. Seeing him squirm would pretty much MAKE MY DAY. He has something coming.

  5. AND…….
    …….I believe that Sidney Powell could indeed make him squirm.
