*Hare Urges Scott Lee Cohen to Step Down*

* *

*Rock Island**, IL*-*Congressman Phil Hare (D-Rock Island)* today released
the following statement calling on Scott Lee Cohen to drop out of the race
for Lieutenant Governor:

"Violence against women is reprehensible and cannot be tolerated. Given the
gravity of the allegations against Mr. Cohen, I am calling on him to drop
out of the race for Lieutenant Governor. With the Ryan and Blagojevich
scandals behind us, the people of Illinois expect and deserve leaders who
exhibit the highest standards of personal conduct possible. Mr. Cohen fails
that test."
