State paying for Rutherford attorneys

Posted by wlpo on March 9, 2014

The state will pay three attorneys up to $200 per hour to represent Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford  in a lawsuit filed by a former employee.

Edmund Michalowski accused Rutherford last month of sexually harassing him and forcing him to do campaign work on state time.

Rutherford, who is seeking the Republican nomination for Illinois governor, has denied the claims. He’s said the accusations have made his campaign more difficult.
