SHARE Treasurer may hold presser if lawsuit filed today

It’s no secret that explosive allegations could be filed today against Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford.

The attorney for Rutherford’s former employee told WLS Radio’s “Bruce & Dan” this morning that she’s planning to file early afternoon, leveling serious allegations against the GOP gubernatorial candidate.

“Obviously the allegations are false. If there is a lawsuit filed today then the Treasurer will respond,” his spokeswoman Mary Frances Bragiel said. “He’ll possibly have a media avail if something is filed today.”

In a Jan. 31 press conference, Rutherford said: “There’s absolutely no truth to the allegations. No factual support or merit.”
