The General Assembly's Inspector General has decided there was no wrongdoing during the vote to override Gov. Pat Quinn's veto of the ComEd bill, ending what was called Buttongate.
“While I’m not able to discuss the particulars, I have no plans to pursue the matter further and consider it closed,” Legislative Inpector General Thomas Homer said.
Gov. Pat Quinn called on Homer to look into the votes of up to 18 House members whose decisions were cast for part of the bill while they were off the floor. Homer says there was no wrongdoing in casting the votes for the bill, which raises rates on consumers to help pay for modernization of the power grid.
