Former federal prosecutor Maggie Hickey has been named to conduct a review of operations of the Illinois House of Representatives after a series of sexual harassment and bullying allegations lodged against top aides and allies of Democratic House Speaker Michael Madigan.

Hickey served as inspector general for agencies under Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner, a position she left in March to join the law firm Schiff Hardin. Hickey was selected to conduct an investigation of House operations by Madigan and a panel of female lawmakers. She previously worked in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Illinois, and also served as chief of staff to former GOP U.S. Sen. Peter Fitzgerald.

“Ms. Hickey’s reputation for integrity is widely recognized, and her experience in conducting investigations, including instances of workplace harassment, will enable her to identify past failures and mistakes, and recommend reforms and new policies that will help create a better culture throughout the operations of the House of Representatives and the General Assembly,” Madigan said in a statement.
