Details Emerge In Sandack ‘Sextortion’ Scandal

New details are emerging about the “sextortion” scheme that led an Illinois lawmaker to resign. 

Politico reports that former state Representative Ron Sandack apparently made a sexually-graphic video with a woman who later tried to blackmail him. The woman reportedly shared the video with some of Sandack’s social media contacts through a fake account she created.

Politico also says Sandack was urged by top Republican officials to resign. Sandack denies that, and says the decision to step down was his alone.
