State Week: Harassment At UIUC; Lightfoot's Big Budget Gap

Brian Mackey
NPR Illinois

A new report from NPR Illinois and ProPublica shows the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign has protected the reputation of several members of the faculty accused of sexual harassment.

Meanwhile, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s tenure crossed the 100-day mark. She marked the ocassion by giving a speech laying out the city's significant fiscal problems, but stopped short of saying precisely what she wants to do to fix them.

Sean Crawford hosts with regular panelist Brian Mackey. This week’s guests are NPR Illinois reporters Rachel Otwell and Mary Hansen, who worked on the U. of I. story.

Later in the program the panel is joined by Heather Cherone, managing editor and city hall reporter for The Daily Line.
