Bruce Rauner: We have taken all steps that the Centers for Disease Control have recommended

Voiceover 3: Documents now show the Rauner Admin made a conscious decision not to inform the families or the public about the deadly Legionnaires outbreak

Voiceover 4: But according to emails from Governor Bruce Rauner’s office, leaders waited six days before alerting the public

Voiceover 5: Lawsuits piling up over problems with Legionnaires Disease at the veteran’s home

Sen. Tammy Duckworth: I think our veterans deserve nothing but the absolute best, and they’re not getting that at this time.
