A Special Father's Day Message From Lisa Madigan:

Dear Daddy . . . I mean Mr. Speaker,

You are the greatest dad ever. You got me this cool attorney general job, and that was after you got me that neat state senate seat.

Also, thanks for having all your union friends be real nice to me, they send me tons of campaign money at Christmas time, they must be rich!

My brother-in-law loves that job at Metra you gave him. He loved playing with toy trains growing up. I don't understand why the Republicans complain about the economy, all our family friends have great jobs!

You've done so much for the family, I'm glad you took time last month to make sure you got a bigger pension. You've been working so hard for the rest of us!

See you at Saputo's next week.

Lisa
