New details are emerging about the “sextortion” scheme that led an Illinois lawmaker to resign. 

Politico reports that former state Representative Ron Sandack apparently made a sexually-graphic video with a woman who later tried to blackmail him. The woman reportedly shared the video with some of Sandack’s social media contacts through a fake account she created.

Politico also says Sandack was urged by top Republican officials to resign. Sandack denies that, and says the decision to step down was his alone.
