And a great quote from Mike Madigan about how he works: “You know, I’m getting a little tired of you trying to do what’s right all the time. We’ve got a great political issue here.”

That’s Mike Madigan: Use an issue for political advantage rather than pass it into law. He’ll likely use the minimum-wage issue again next year, perhaps by passing a bill that he knows will be vetoed by a Gov. Rauner.
