Conservative Republican Jillian Bernas of Schaumburg is calling on Rep. Michelle Mussman (D-Schaumburg) to join her in demanding that House Speaker Mike Madigan (D-Chicago) resign.

Bernas is running in the GOP primary in the 56th House District and garnered 44.7 percent of the vote in her 2016 race against Mussman.
