Former Treasurer’s Office Employees File Suit

Republican gubernatorial candidate State Treasurer Dan Rutherford participates in a Republican gubernatorial candidate debate Tuesday, Feb. 18, 2014, in Springfield, Ill. The four Republican gubernatorial candidates said that they’ll be willing to work with unions if elected but differed on how to approach the relationship during a downstate debate that largely focused on pension reform, taxes and just briefly on personal issues that have dogged some of the candidates.

The suit is the latest chapter in a saga involving sexual harassment claims that undercut Rutherford's 2014 campaign for governor.
