Don’t Ask Don’t Tell

Will the QC establishment press ask Susie Carpentier to comment about Dan Rutherford’s problems?

“A former high-ranking employee for Illinois State Treasurer Dan Rutherford dropped bombshell allegations in federal court Monday—charging that Rutherford sexually harassed him and used his state office to further his political aspirations.”

Count me unimpressed if some Illinois politico used his “state office to further his political aspirations”, but how will his local poobahs like Carpentier explain this? Will the local establishment press even ask?

Rather than embarrass local politicos of either party—better to don’t ask, don’t tell.

  1. This smoke and fire story isn’t adding up. The days of the “encounter” were falsified by state travel vouchers, among other inconsistencies.

  2. Since all the “facts” aren’t out there, it is difficult to judge, but unfortunately, for the LIV there is enough out there for them to decide.

    The Rauner Deranged are convinced he is behind this, but when you consider the accuser went to work for a Democrat as a lawyer for labor, this looks more like a Democrat hit.

    Either way—too bad, but Illinois politics ain’t beanbag—just ask those who got nuked out by Obama on his march to the WH.

  3. Rutherford should not claim to be “straight” when so many in the gay community knew he was not. This is not a “Democrat” or “Republican” issue. No, this is self-inflicted mortal wound. Rutherford should resign and move the race from questions about homosexuality to issues of concern to voters!

  4. Luckily for Dan, LIV’s don’t vote in primaries.

    Still inevitably going to be Rauner in a landslide.

  5. I don’t think Rutherford has an obligation to out himself if he is gay—or if he isn’t. What ever happened to just saying “none of your damned business” when snoopy people ask snoopy irrelevant questions? I’m thinking this sexual harassment thing could be trumped up—ever notice how football players are always patting each other on the butt? Are they all gay?

    The guy seemed more offended that as a Democrat he was forced to work on a GOP campaign—which makes more sense to me than the harassment thing—although that is also a possibility.

  6. Slapping a fellow footballer on the rear end is one thing, but grabbing a work subordinates gentiles is plain wrong. Now that this top Republican candidate for Governor have been exposed rank and file Elephants are suggesting DEMOCRATS ARE BAD, but REPUBLICAN SEXUAL HARASSMENT AT WORK is great. Sheeeeesh! Vote Liberty!

  7. Yeah, that’s why I figured Rauner wasn’t behind this—he doesn’t need it.

    Feel kinda bad for Rutherford because by all accounts, he’s a good guy—except maybe to his employees, but as Carpentier said “We know politics in Illinois is not for the faint of heart”—or the wild at heart, either.
