Rise and Shine - Corruption in Illinois

Public funds spent on jets and horses. Shoeboxes stuffed with embezzled cash. Ghost payrolls and incarcerated ex-governors. Illinois' culture of "Where's mine?" and the public apathy it engenders has made our state and local politics a disgrace. Authors Thomas J. Gradel and Dick Simpson will discuss their new book "Corruption in Illinois" and dispel the notion that corruption only occurs in the city of Chicago.
