Politicians Like So-Called Attorney General Lisa Madigan Rush to Exploit Jackie Robinson West Kids for Photo-Ops
One of the rare recent positive stories for the Chicago area, Illinois and US has been watching the amazing journey of the Jackie Robinson West kids to become the United States champs of the Little League World Series.
But, just like politicians routinely do to taxpayers, business and everything, they rushed at the opportunity to exploit these kids for photo-ops and political agenda.
So-called attorney general Lisa Madigan is one of the worst examples. Before the kids were to embark on their victory parade, she made a speech about how her loving baseball since she was a kid.
When asked if Madigan skipped work at taxpayer expense, her office said she was representing the "state" even though Governor Pat Quinn was there giving his own spin on the situation for political gain.
Political exploitation of kids for these type of things is a bi-partisan bad habit. Sen. Mark Kirk also made sure to have a photo op, although he did it behind-the-scenes.
When questions of corruption across Illinois or Michael Madigan's dictatorship are frequently discussed, Lisa Madigan is mysteriously not available to be found, let alone for a photo-op.
