October 17, 2012 (CHICAGO)

The house's GOP leader Tom Cross says House Speaker Mike Madigan is behind a series of misleading direct mail campaigns.

Republicans says the mailings are preying on the fears of voters regarding topics like Social Security, Medicare and the 2nd Amendment.

"They have launched a campaign of misinformation and lies designed to deceive voters at a time when voters need the most accurate information available to make critical choices," said State Rep. Tom Cross. (R) House minority leader.

A spokesperson for House Speaker Michael Madigan tells ABC7 that, unless state Republicans want to disavow the Romney-Ryan budget, the brochures are right on target.
