Madigan staff member fired amid claims of misconduct

ILLINOIS (WCIA) -- House Speaker Michael Madigan has fired a second high-ranking staff member amid complaints of misconduct.

Madigan made the announcement Monday night after previously denying rumors about Shaw Decremer.

The statement never mentioned him by name, but Madigan noted the individual will not be involved in any future campaign activities.

Three top state Democrats released a joint statement thanking the women who have come forward. They said the Sexual Harassment Panel will seek to eliminate the "good ole' boy" culture in state politics.
