Republican Gubernatorial Candidate and State Senator Bill Brady today called for an immediate joint investigation by the Senate and House Judiciary Committees into reports by the Associated Press (AP) regarding the Quinn Administration's MGT Push program. According to AP, the whereabouts of at least 50 felons released under this secret early release program remain unknown, including one on murder-related charges.
House Judiciary Committee Minority Spokesman Representative Dennis Reboletti and Senate Judiciary Committee Minority Spokesman Senator Kirk Dillard joined Brady at the announcement.
"If true, these public reports show an outrageous disregard by this Administration for the victims of these dangerous criminals, and for the public safety of Illinois," said Brady.
"Right now these felons are roaming free. They're on the lam, and the Quinn Administration must be held accountable," he said.
"These reports raise serious questions about the ability of the Department of Corrections under this Administration to appropriately monitor and locate dangerous parolees."
