A week after lawmakers tried to address complaints of sexual harassment in Illinois politics, Gov. Bruce Rauner joined skeptics who don’t think they did enough to ensure that complaints will be investigated and wrongdoers punished. On Thursday, the Republican governor said the two bills the Democrat-controlled General Assembly sent him last week would start the process of taking on sexual harassment concerns. One requires sexual harassment prevention training for lawmakers and lobbyists.
The U.S. Department of Justice is threatening to pull millions of dollars in funding from Illinois after Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner signed an immigration measure into law this summer. Known as the Trust Act, the new law prohibits state and local police in Illinois from arresting or detaining people solely because of their immigration status, or based on a federal immigration detainer. The law, however, allows law enforcement officials to hold someone if a judge has issued a warrant.
Gov. Bruce Rauner hit the road Monday as he asks voters for a second term in office, recycling many of the same ideas he’s long pushed with little success. The Republican governor began his weeklong tour of Illinois at a manufacturing plant in Decatur, a familiar backdrop for a politician who argues many of the state’s financial problems can be solved by cutting regulations on businesses so they can create more jobs.
Rauner called for the legislature to look into "meaningful reforms of its ethical oversight structure," saying current rules give inspector general a "narrow mandate and limited authority." https://t.co/DbS5A293B4
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
