Rauner Denies Pay-To-Play, While Protestors Poke Fun At His Wealth


Republican candidate for governor Bruce Rauner is denying any “pay-to-play” in the lucrative contracts his company got with Pennsylvania’s public pension systems. 

 

Governor Pat Quinn claims Rauner’s firm got a multi-million-dollar contract after Rauner donated $300,000 to the campaign of that state’s Democratic governor, Ed Rendell.  In Springfield Friday night, Rauner said he never discussed pensions or contracts with Rendell.

 

Rauner’s campaign has a character called “Quinnochio” that it sends to Governor Pat Quinn’s campaign events.  Now an anti-Rauner PAC is fighting back. 

 

The Illinois Freedom PAC posted an actor in a top hat and tux with a sign that read “Billionaires for Bruce” outside a Rauner fundraising event in Springfield Friday night.  The group says that Rauner is out of touch with the needs and interests of middle-class Illinoisans.
