Reports have disclosed that the ex-wife of Illinois State Senator Mike Hastings’s filed a police report accusing Hastings of domestic violence — specifically beating and choking-out his wife in front of their small children, as well as verbal abuse.

There have been calls by several political officials for Hastings to resign, including by Democrat Governor JB Pritzker. As of the time of this statement, Cook County Board President, Toni Preckwinkle, Democrat Cook County Board 17th District candidate, Dan Calandriello, and Orland Township Democratic Committeeperson, Beth McElroy Kirkwood have refused to call on Hastings to resign.

Not only has there been complete radio silence from these Democrat officials and candidates — the Orland Township Democrats continue to support and fund Hastings and his campaign for re-election — contributing $45,000 to his campaign in the last week alone.

Prior to the recent accusations by his ex-wife, Hastings has had previous accusations of intimidation, harassment, and violence by other women. This included paid settlements for accusations of sexual harassment of a female employee, racially harassing and discriminating against an African American staffer, and accusations against Hastings by female collogues in Springfield including repeated verbal harassment, verbal abuse, bullying tactics, and intimidation.

Opponent

My opponent, Dan Calandriello maintains his endorsement and support of his friend, Mike Hastings — even sharing a political mailer professing their support of each other. Calandriello has repeatedly refused to call for Hastings’s resignation, or even so much as denouncing his abhorrent acts of violence

This is not only completely unacceptable — it shows a total lack of leadership, judgement, and character.

While most Democrat politicians claim to advocate for the protection of women — when it comes time to actually stand up and speak out against acts of violence committed by their Democrat colleagues, there is a deafening silence on the part of these officials. Regardless of your political affiliation, this should tell you all that you need to know.

Sincerely,

Commissioner Sean M. Morrison

Cook County Board of Commissioners, 17th District
