“Sen.Mike Jacobs dismisses concerns about rate hikes to fund ComEd’s plan to modernize its grid and tells the attorney general [Lisa Madigan] to mind her own business…
“If consumers want something to work they’ve gotta pay for it . . . There’s nothing for free . . . But, here, the attorney general, who doesn’t have a vote in this body, is determining how I could vote or what I should do. No! If you want to have a vote in this General Assembly run for office.”
What a hoot! The hubris of our specially bred senator knows no limits!
Unsaid by Rich Miller is the fact that Jacobs’ daddy lobbys for ComEd. So even if Lisa Madigan doesn’t have a vote, his daddy does—for his lobbying pals.
What a coincidence—and sweet deal for the Jacobs family. But at least it’s good to know that our senator isn’t working for us, he’s working for his daddy and special interests.
