Two Minnesota legislators—Republican Congressman Tony Cornish and DFL Senator Dan Schoen—were recently named in sexual-harassment cases, calling attention to what many say is a widespread problem in state government. Both men have since announced plans to resign from the legislature. 

As the calls for the men to resign from their political posts increased,  Judy Erickson, government affairs consultant for the Cook County Chamber, was visiting the North Shore. WTIP's Rhonda Silence checked in with Erickson to hear her thoughts on the situation at the Capitol.
