CHANGING HIS TUNE

Accused Pol Won’t Release Sexual Harassment Report

Earlier this week, Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford insisted that an investigation by his office (paid for by the good people of Illinois) would clear his name of sexual harassment allegations against him. The investigation might not exonerate Rutherford, who is campaigning to be the Republican party’s gubernatorial candidate, after all because he’s now refusing to release the results. His attorney says that, now that Rutherford has officially been served with a lawsuit, “he has to follow the rules,” insisting that, “Nothing’s being hidden and no negative inference should be taken.”
