Castro: Covering up crimes should be punished, not rewarded

castro 060219SPRINGFIELD – In response to a WBEZ report that a former lobbyist attempted to use cover ups as leverage in a friend’s upcoming disciplinary hearing, State Senator Cristina Castro (D-Elgin) released the following statement:

“If someone covers up crimes or unethical practices, they should be punished, not rewarded. It is unconscionable that the culture in Springfield has created an environment that allows behavior like this to occur. That’s why I have fought and will continue to fight for the ethical reforms that will make the people of Illinois regain trust in their government officials.”
