I'd take Biden any day over someone who says things so ridiculous that when satire sites like National Report does an article stating she was on Fox News saying that Mexicans need to get on the boat they came in on and go back home, it sounds 100% believable.

I'm certainly open to being proven wrong on that point. More importantly: I just got my first IntenseDebate email notification of a reply to a comment. New feature? Or does it just come through when QuincyJournal replies to a comment. Because it's great. Makes it easier to follow debates.

C'mon. People in these types of jobs move all of the time and their employers know their people are always going to be looking for the next rung up.

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.
