slavery, and Violent punishments (I'm guessing you mean assault) are already illegal, if a gambler is neglecting his kids thats already illegal, even if his spouse allows it. driving under the influence is also already illegal.

Rutherford's defense costs rise on the state dime

Taxpayer funds used to defend treasurer on allegations

The state will pay three attorneys up to $200 per hour to represent Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford in a lawsuit filed by a former employee.

Edmund Michalowski accused Rutherford last month of sexually harassing him and forcing him to do campaign work on state time.

Rutherford, who is seeking the Republican nomination for Illinois governor, has denied the claims. He's said the accusations have made his campaign more difficult.

Documents from the attorney general's office say Robert Shuftan, Daniel Fahner and Bilal Zaheer have been appointed special assistant attorneys general. They'll be paid using taxpayer funds from the treasurer's office.

Rutherford spent almost $27,000 in taxpayers' money on investigations into the allegations. He initially said the findings would be made public, but reversed course after the lawsuit was filed.
