Rutherford Repeatedly Roomed with Staffer

Illinois State Treasurer Dan Rutherford (R) "routinely roomed overnight in hotels and a Chicago apartment with a low-level treasurer's office employee whom he has given a 50 percent pay hike, raising questions about the workplace judgment of the Republican candidate for governor," the Chicago Tribune reports.

Said Rutherford: "We double-bunk in the campaign. We always double-bunk when we can. Totally as a cost-saving measure."
