An award-winning ABC7 political reporter who retired from journalism this year says there is unprecedented outrage at government corruption in Illinois.Andy Shaw is the Better Government Association's new executive director and is this week's guest on Newsviews.

Shaw said that people are fed up with high level criminality that imposes what he calls a corruption tax.

"I don't think in my entire adult life I've ever seen a more crying need among angry Illinois residents for reform. I've never seen a groundswell of frustration that is more pressing than now. It's like we have 13 million Illinois residents who like Howard Beale in that movie, 'Network,' are mad as hell, and not gonna take it anymore," said Andy Shaw, Better Government Asssociation.
