The RTA is poised to vote on a $5 million marketing campaign with the ad firm that handled Attorney General Lisa Madigan's last election campaign and is a contributor. Is there a conflict of interest given that Madigan's brother-in-law is No. 2 at the RTA? The $5 million is intended to target ocasional riders, reverse commuters and older adults.
