When incumbent Democrat Lisa Madigan lists her accomplishments since becoming Illinois’ first female attorney general in 2003, it is a difficult not to be impressed.
Madigan is smart, competent and sticks to her duties. We’ve heard from too many candidates various plans that infringe upon or duplicate the duties of other statewide officials.
We appreciate her efforts to recoup money for the state of Illinois through various settlements on behalf of homeowners, communities and the pension systems.
She is dedicated to fighting consumer fraud and identity theft – both of which are becoming more serious problems nationwide as hackers revel in gaining access to consumers’ financial data through companies’ and banks’ computer systems.
