On this week’s episode of the Under the Dome Podcast the State Journal-Register’s Bernard Schoenburg and Doug Finke work remotely to bring you the latest updates from the Illinois Statehouse and Illinois' response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This week they break down the indictment of Michael McClain, one of Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan’s oldest and most trusted confidants, along with three others that are charged with orchestrating an elaborate bribery scheme with utility giant Commonwealth Edison. They also take a look at what this all means for his tenure as speaker as more House Democrats say that can't support Madigan for another term as speaker.
