CHICAGO (AP) – Gov. Bruce Rauner’s former communications director is suing the administration over emails on the signing of a controversial plan allowing taxpayer-funded abortions.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports the Cook County lawsuit was filed last week.
Diana Rickert, a former communications director for Rauner’s office, wants the court to order Rauner’s office to produce records she’s sought, including first lady Diana Rauner’s emails on the abortion bill that’s now law.
The governor’s office says the lawsuit is “under review.”
