Austin Berg from the Illinois Policy Institute joins Annie to discuss the Illinois gas tax.

Berg says IL State Senator Martin Sandoval hasn't had a good month, "at the end of September, we actually saw FBI agents raid the home of Martin Sandoval, the district office of Ciero, (outside of Chicago) of Martin Sandoval, and the Springfield office of Martin Sandoval."

Sandoval was the the creator of the Illinois Infrastructure bill funded by a doubling of the state gas tax.

Berg admits that the Illinois Policy Institute, "don't know what federal investigators were looking for, but sources on the inside say that they were looking for Sandoval trading his public power for private kickbacks."
