Rutherford: No "Direct Facts" of Rauner Involvement, Yet Continues to Accuse Anyway
At the Rutherford’s press conference Monday [View video below], when asked about what proof he has of Rauner’s involvement [Starts at 13:53] he stated, “I do not have any direct facts to it”. It is kind of hypocritical, i.e. political, that while Rutherford asserts the charges against him are false, even with direct evidence presented, while he continues to accuse Rauner for being behind the attack when he has no “direct facts”? Doesn’t this make the attacks on Rauner false?
The following is from a Rutherford email:
The recent smear campaign against me, including false allegations and accusations (click for the facts) against me are attempts by a billionaire bully to knock me out of this race. It needs to stop. It serves no purpose other than generating salacious headlines written to sell newspapers. It doesn’t serve our state, voters are not going to tolerate it, and neither will I.
