This creep is running for governor. Did he think the truth wouldn't come out?
FORMER EMPLOYEE ALLEGES ILLINOIS TREASURER DAN RUTHERFORD SEXUALLY HARASSED HIM.
A former employee for Illinois State Treasurer Dan Rutherford alleged in federal court Monday that Rutherford sexually harassed him and used his state office to further his political aspirations.
The employee, Ed Michalowski (photo far right), charged that Rutherford has made unwanted sexual advances against him since 2011. In one instance, Michalowski claims that in 2011 Rutherford held an overnight office retreat at Rutherford’s Pontiac home, entered Michalowski’s bedroom and grabbed his genitals.
Michalowski, 43, served as Rutherford’s Director of Community Affairs and Marketing. He resigned last week, telling the Sun-Times he felt intimidated by a news conference Rutherford held promising to combat the allegations while flanked by former federal agents.
The lawsuit goes on to detail other instances of alleged harassment, including during the 2012 Republican National convention in Tampa, Fla., and at a Springfield bar.

There is also a story going around that Rutherford had a 19 year old campaign aid locked in a car, for an hour last week, while he sat in a restaurant. Problem is that the temperature was below zero and the car was not running. If true, this guy Rutherford is brutal.
