Investing offshore is bad when Bruce Rauner does it, but it’s part of a fiduciary duty when a state pension system does it. That’s how Gov. Pat Quinn reconciles investments in the Cayman Islands.
Quinn said Rauner ought to look to another Republican, former Massachusetts governor and 2012 presidential runner-up Mitt Romney, as an example. “Disclose your income tax return with the schedules. That’s what Mitt Romney did. If it was good enough for Romney, it ought to be good enough for Rauner.” When reminded Romney lost, Quinn said, “I think you should do things right all the time. Disclose your tax returns, as I’ve done my whole life – with the schedules.”
