Recent Allegation of Sexual Harassment and Abuse in Springfield

There have been several allegations of sexual abuse and harassment in Illinois state government in the recent months. I believe that all allegations of sexual harassment, assault, abuse, bullying or retaliation in Springfield need to be taken seriously and investigated thoroughly. These behaviors have been covered up for far too long and I applaud the bravery of the individuals who have spoken out.

These toxic actions are completely unacceptable and anyone found to have acted in a manner that is illegal, unethical, or unbecoming of their position should face immediate and appropriate repercussions.

To change a culture like this takes a real commitment from everyone involved. The system in Springfield for reporting and dealing with these types of harassment and abuse is broken. The onus is on legislators to fix it.

That is why I co-sponsored HB138. This legislation which is now law, cracks down on sexual harassment, abuse, and retaliation in Springfield and provides clear channels by which employees can make a complaint. Although this bill will help create safe opportunities for victims to come forward, it simply isn’t enough. We must change behavior and we must change the system in order to root out this toxic culture everywhere.
