Springfield's Sexual Harassment Problem

Allegations of sexual harassment have rocked Springfield, and this might only be the beginning of the story. On this edition of Illinois Rising, Dan Proft and Pat Hughes talk to Denise Rotheimer, the activist who accused Chicago Democrat state Sen. Ira Silverstein of sexual harassment, about her allegations, the culture in Springfield and why it needs to change. Proft and Hughes also discuss the GOP primary race for governor, with state Rep. Jeanne Ives taking on incumbent Gov. Bruce Rauner. And if you're wondering why property taxes in the northwest suburbs are so high, Proft and Hughes get the analysis of what's driving them from Wirepoints President Ted Dabrowski.
