(Chicago, IL) — A victims’ rights advocate is accusing Illinois state senator Ira Silverstein of sexual harassment. Denise Rotheimer claims the Chicago Democrat harassed her while the pair worked together on legislation to provide legal representation for crime victims.
Rotheimer publicly made the allegation against the lawmaker yesterday at an Illinois House committee hearing in Chicago. Silverstein has apologized for making Rotheimer uncomfortable but denies sexually harassing her.
