The former director of the activist group CeaseFire announces his run for governor this weekend.

Tio Hardiman is joining the Democratic primary race, against Pat Quinn and Bill Daley.

Hardiman was fired by CeaseFire after his wife accused him of beating her.

She later dropped the charges.

Hardiman says, if he’s elected, he’ll turn some state prisons into rehab centers for non-violent offenders.

He says he’ll end political corruption, fix the pension funding crisis, and stop state harassment of legal gun owners.
