Rutherford should resign and withdraw

Isn’t it great that we have a state treasurer who is so conscientious about how he spends taxpayers’ monies on official travel that he even doubles up at expensive hotels with his male assistant (Rich Miller column, Feb. 18) to save our tax dollars?

We cannot overlook the fact that he is equally concerned about contributors to his campaign. These two also share an apartment when campaigning in Chicago.

Yet, the same man sees no contradiction in terms for hiring an expensive internal investigator to look into the allegations of sexual harassment and abuse of state employees expected to work on his campaign.

Who is he kidding? The reader reads between the lines. Everybody knows what everybody else is saying. The papers have their hands tight. They are liable.

Rutherford is dead in the water on his bid for governor of Illinois. The best thing he can do is resign as state treasurer and withdraw from the governor’s race.

The Republican Party has suffered enough from the attacks of the Democratic Party, who claim they are for the little fellow on the street, yet they consistently outraise Republicans in political contributions. From the little fellow in the street, I suppose, huh?
