Rutherford says Rauner is directly connected to claims that he’s committed some type of misconduct.  The claim was made by one of Rutherford’s employees at the Treasurer’s Office, who is represented by an attorney with ties to Rauner.  She’s apparently demanding 300-thousand-dollars for the employee to quote, "walk away and keep it under wraps."   But Rutherford says the allegations of misconduct are false and he’s hired an independent investigator to look further into it.  Rauner has denied having any connection to the allegations.
