Dan RutherfordIllinois taxpayers are paying for three new attorneys to help Treasurer Dan Rutherford clear his name.  Rutherford has been accused of sexually assaulting a former male employee.  He’s denied the allegations and even paid 27-grand to have an internal investigation conducted but he won’t release the findings. 

Rutherford says his first attorney has urged him to keep the details under wraps because of a pending federal lawsuit.  The three new lawyers have been appointed as special attorneys general and are being paid up to 200-dollars-an-hour for their services.
