Rep. Wilhour on Cashless Bail: “An Abject Failure…It Doesn’t Work”

Republican lawmakers like Rep. Blaine Wilhour believe it will instead allow lawlessness to become the rule of the land.

“We’re going to be the only state in the country that’s doing this and there’s a reason why the other states aren’t doing this,” said Rep. Blaine Wilhour (R).  There’s a reason why the states that were doing this are no longer doing this: Because it doesn’t work.”

“This was tried in New York City and it was such an abject failure that they’ve backpedaled on it,” said Rep. Wilhour.  “We’ve just got a bunch of politicians in this state that are trying to out progressive each other, and it’s not good for the citizens of Illinois.”
