Madigan fires long-time aide

ILLINOIS (WCIA) -- A high-ranking staffer under Speaker of the House Michael Madigan is out of a job.

Long-time aide Kevin Quinn was fired by Madigan after being accused of sexual harassment.

Madigan released a statement Monday:

In November, a courageous woman made me aware that a high-ranking individual within my political operation had previously made unwanted advances and sent her inappropriate text messages. 

He served under Madigan for nearly 20-years. This is the second sexual harassment accusation to emerge in the Capitol since October.
