Yeah...maybe they were "inappropriate" jokes. Why don't we go though all Al Sharpton's emails and President Obama's? Think we might find an inappropriate joke or two in there? Actually don't have to look at emails...just look at what they say. EVERYBODY HAS BIAS AND PREJUDICE....it's DISCRIMINATION that you have to avoid. I don't think it's quite time for the…

One question: Who were the 'authorities' responsible for okaying the re-open after the first time, when later in the evening Kelly's had the same problem? Whoever that 'responsible' authority is needs also to be held accountable.

Bizarre sequence of events in GOP gubernatorial campaign

From from suntimes.com:

In an announcement rocking the Republican gubernatorial primary race, Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford contended Friday that his opponent, millionaire businessman Bruce Rauner, paid an attorney who demanded $300,000 from him on behalf of a Rutherford employee making allegations against him.

Rutherford said at a news conference that the allegations are false but declined to describe them. They were made last week by a current employee in the treasurer’s office, Rutherford said.

Rutherford said he has launched an independent investigation into the allegations and accused Rauner of trying to destroy him.

“I’m going to turn this back on him,” Rutherford said. “I find this to be very, very offensive. ... Illinois politics is hardball.”

Rauner’s campaign denies having anything to do with the allegations against Rutherford.

“Treasurer Rutherford should spend his time answering the serious claims made against him by a state employee, rather than trying to distract attention with false claims against us,” Rauner spokesman Mike Schrimpf said.
