Rauner ad blames Quinn for murderers, wife beaters on street

SHARE Rauner ad blames Quinn for murderers, wife beaters on street

Gone are the friendly ads showing Bruce and Diana Rauner bantering about his bad plaid shirt.

The Rauner campaign is airing a new ad that blames Gov. Pat Quinn for putting sex offenders, wife beaters and murderers back on the street.

The ad is a reference to a controversial 2009 early prison release program that resulted in some violent prisoners getting out of prison early. It was a thorn in the governor’s side during his 2010 election.
