Despite overwhelming demand for political-mapmaking reform in Illinois, Madigan has snuffed it out at every turn. And controversy surrounding Madigan’s maps stretch back more than 30 years.
This year, more than 500,000 Illinoisans signed a petition to put a mapmaking-reform referendum on the November ballot. If successful, it would shrink the speaker’s influence in legislative map drawing by putting that process in the hands of a broad coalition, rather than the winner-take-all system that has followed the census each decade since 1970.
But Madigan’s top lawyer, Michael Kasper, sued to strike the referendum from the ballot earlier this year. A district court ruled in his favor. The case now sits before the Illinois Supreme Court.
