New video blasts GOP state Rep Hammond for failing women exploited by state lawmakers

CHICAGO – Upstream Ideas released a video Friday lambasting GOP incumbent State Rep. Norine Hammond – and her colleagues – by tying them all to a sexual harassment scandal that rocked the Capitol in 2017.  

"It was Norine Hammond who left the Legislative Inspector General's office vacant for three years while dozens of complaints – including mine – went un-investigated," Denise Rotheimer says in the video. 

Rotheimer says Hammond's challenger has "given her more of voice" than Hammond ever has. 

The Upstreams Ideas' video does not note that Hammond is in the House minority, with little ability to push forward anything Democrat House Speaker Mike Madigan doesn't want moved.

Upstream Ideas' operations are headed by radio talk show host Dan Proft and was partially funded in 2016 with $244,000 as an independent contractor by the Illinois Policy Institute, the charitable non-profit group's 2016 tax records show HERE on Page 10.
