I Won't Resign

There are four stages to classic attempts to discredit the victims of bullying, harassment and abuse: Deny their claims are true, isolate the victim, attack their credibility, and dismiss them. At this point, there is no way to deny the culture of harassment in state government. As more
women come forward, there’s no longer a way to isolate them or claim their accounts are false.
Therefore, the only thing left for Speaker Madigan to do is dismiss them. Pat Hughes explains in this week's Two Minute Warning.

With several of Mike Madigan's key allies facing sexual harassment allegations, voters are starting to get a better idea of Springfield's disreputable culture. But could a new crop of lawmakers and leaders change that?

Ruling Class Retaliation

Democrat Representative Kelly Cassidy claims she was bullied and intimidated by Speaker Madigan's allies. It's another example of the despicable culture in Springfield, where the political elites believe the rules don’t apply to them, victims of harassment are ignored, and any dissenting voices are shut down. In the face of multiple scandals, most House and Senate Democrats have remained silent, protecting their leader and the status quo.

In this week's Two Minute Warning Pat Hughes warns that we must end the cycle of threats and intimidation. We must dismantle the Madigan machine politicians and elect new, independent legislators to represent us.
