Bush calls on Rep. Sauer to resign

bush 051018SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Melinda Bush (D-Grayslake) released the following statement this morning after serious criminal allegations were made public against State Representative Nick Sauer (R-Lake Barrington), a member of the House Sexual Discrimination and Harassment Task Force:

“Rep. Nick Sauer should resign from his office immediately. For far too long in Springfield, sexual harassment and abuse from those in positions of power has gone unchecked. I applaud this woman for coming forward and telling her story. Women must have confidence that when they come forward with stories of abuse that the systems in place will hear them and believe them. Without accountability there can be no change.”
