Dillard claims Rahm-Rauner conspiracy

Thursday, Oct 24, 2013

* Sun-Times

Mayor Rahm Emanuel is trying to help his friend Bruce Rauner win the crowded Republican primary for governor by endorsing incumbent Democrat Pat Quinn, Republican gubernatorial candidate Kirk Dillard charged Thursday.

Dillard offered that Machiavellian theory, one day after Emanuel endorsed Quinn for re-election, in spite of his rocky relationship with the governor and his close friendship with Rauner, the millionaire venture capitalist challenging Dillard for the GOP nomination.

“Rahm is very smart. He knows he helps Rauner in a Republican primary by strongly endorsing Quinn,” Dillard said Thursday.

As a loyal Democrat, Dillard said Emanuel is always going to pay lip service to the Democratic nominee.

But, he said, “I suspect he’s really rooting for Bruce Rauner. . . . Bruce Rauner is the man who made Rahm Emanuel rich right after he left the Clinton administration. Chicago Magazine just had a story with pictures of the two vacationing together. He’s a member of Rahm Emanuel’s inner circle. . . . That cozy relationship is problematic governmentally. It’s too close for comfort.”

I think that photo was of the two hugging each other at a Chicago event, but whatever.

    Kiiiiiiiiiirrrrk Dillard. Soooooooo irrelevant.


  2. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 2:45 pm:

    “More like this Please” …

    Less the Tin Foil hat, just link Payton Prep Clouter to Rich Daley, to Rahm Emanuel … do not say the word “Democrat”, remind everyone of Arne Duncan, Denied New Trier Daughter, through Rich Daley denied a child a real chance, and Rauner bought a Condo to keep up all the appearances…

    “More like this Please …”

    Frame it, sell it, remind it, and define it, for PPC Rauner and define it especially in regards to yourself.

    Well done.


  3. - Boone's is Back - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 2:47 pm:

    Apparently Kirk’s plan is to get the media to shill his message for him since he can’t raise enough money to do it himself. Ask Forrest Claypool how that worked out…


  4. - hisgirlfriday - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 2:49 pm:

    Oh Fran, your misplaced modifier just called Dillard a loyal Democrat.

    Did the Sun-Times can the copy desk along with the photogs?


  5. - DuPage Rep - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 2:50 pm:

    What kind of cozy relationship did Dillard have with Obama? Close enough to cross party lines and cut a commercial in a Democratic primary for his buddy. Give me a break. Dillard is so desperate he will say and do anything. Just ask Jon Zahm.


  6. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 2:50 pm:

    Last tip;

    to all speaking for you, Kirk, and all your surrogates, including Jil Tracy.

    No. RINO. None.

    Do not say “RINO”, spell “RINO”, refer to Rhinos at the Brookfield Zoo as “elephants with a horn”!

    Do not damage the work being done by making it about “RINO” and allowing PPC and “Slip and Sue” to pivot off it, calling it “Business as usual and name calling”

    No RINO.

    Again, well done, hope my tips are helping you, along with Brady and Rutherford, if they can understand how this can help…

    Good on Dillard/Tracy - stay away from the term “RINO”!


  7. - Chavez-respecting Obamist - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 2:56 pm:

    So is Kirk going to blame his defeat on Rahm/Rauner? I would think most people are turned off by his pandering to the extreme right wing of his own party.


  8. - Norseman - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 2:58 pm:

    It’s campaign time. D’Lard has to get his shots in when he can. He doesn’t have the money to do it up big with paid media.


  9. - hisgirlfriday - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 2:59 pm:

    BTW, Kirk missed an opportunity to point out Rahms UNO-connected personally selected Chicago Plan Commission chair just last week gave the go ahead for more tax dollars to be funneled into the charter school network (Noble) of which Bruce Rauner is a board member, even when their latest high school is right across the street from an existing high school that had its funding cut this year.


  10. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 3:01 pm:

    - Chavez-respecting Obamist -,

    “Emanuel” and “Daley” poll incredibly poor in the ILGOP Primary this cycle, with a vast …vast majority very negative about any GOP candidate that is close to either “name”.

    Link it, sell it, define it, and make it stick to PPC, and you have a negative that will have legs.

    Not a “Right Wing” thing, not a Moderate thing, its a ILGOP thing right now, and is polling harsh for anyone close to the names “Emanuel” or “Daley”.

    The numbers are with the tactic, but can Dillard, or a Rutherford and a Brady make it work?

    Gotta ride it till it sticks, without making it a Tin Foil Hat fiasco, wrapped in a “RINO” skin.


  11. - just sayin - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 3:03 pm:

    Hey Oswego-

    How does Obama poll in the ILGOP primary?


  12. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 3:07 pm:

    - just sayin -,

    I don’t care. I am not with Dillard, or Brady or Rutherford for that matter.

    I know what is going to make Payton Prep Clouter Bruce Rauner have a tough time winning.

    I knock around the other three when they deserve it. Hit the “search” key. Rauner’s soft spot is “Daley”, “Emanuel”, and “Clouting”.


  13. - Downstate Weed Chewing Hick - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 3:07 pm:

    A Dillard quote that doesn’t mention Jim Edgar? I find this hard to believe.


  14. - wordslinger - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 3:09 pm:

    Dillard’s on terra firma here. He’s been playing the inside game since he was Big Jim’s fixer in the GA in the 80s.


  15. - just sayin - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 3:10 pm:

    Big Jim?

    OOHHHH! You mean Rod Blagojevich’s lawyer!


  16. - wordslinger - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 3:12 pm:

    HGF speaks the truth. Anyone check on the Noble contracts network?

    Like UNO, I’m sure they’re all outsiders who care about nothing but the children when it comes to spending taxpayer dollars.


  17. - A guy... - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 3:14 pm:

    Egads. Who was Rahm supposed to endorse? Sheesh. There’s only one guy in the race in his party. How would the average guy on the street somehow interpret a Democratic Mayor endorsing a Democratic Governor helpful to any one of 4 Republicans? Machiavellian Conspiracy is right. Call Alcoa and ask them to double the production of tin foil. Probably only have to make the hats in one size though.


  18. - Nearly Normal - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 3:15 pm:

    Just because he’s paranoid doesn’t mean the others aren’t out to get him.


  19. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 3:16 pm:

    ===OOHHHH! You mean Rod Blagojevich’s lawyer!===

    Jim Thompson was also on Blago’s Transition Team …

    Your …Point?


  20. - just sayin - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 3:16 pm:

    Kirk who?


  21. - A guy... - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 3:18 pm:

    Just Sayin’, with due respect, Lawyers don’t make money hanging around with guys who obey the law.


  22. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 3:20 pm:

    - just sayin -,

    Kirk Dillard, the candidate who just made a point that Bruce Rauner is this/close to Rahm Emanuel, Payton Prep Clouter’s “vacation buddy”, who made Rahm Emanuel a millionaire, and Rahm Emanuel who presented an award to his buddy PPC Rauner …I think we have a picture of the Payton Prep clouter and Rahm together with the award …

    Yeah, Kirk Dillard who is reminding everyone about Rahm and Bruce and how oh so close they are, families vacationing at a private home in Montana …

    Yeah, that Kirk.


  23. - just sayin - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 3:23 pm:

    Oh, you mean the guy with no money and no chance to win and the only one of the four who will be out of politics once this race is over?

    Got it.


  24. - Skeeter - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 3:26 pm:

    It just seems like bad politics for a guy who made an ad for a Democrat to complain about another guy having ties to a Democrat.

    Somebody should tell D-Lard that typically successful campaigns focus attention away from their greatest weakness.


  25. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 3:26 pm:

    - just sayin -,

    Oh, I will help furhter, Dillard wasn’t the one who denied a child a chance at a better future with a phone call to a Rich Daley appointee, when the daughter didn’t live in Chicago.

    how does it go …”just sayin”?


  26. - Johnny Q. Suburban - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 3:32 pm:

    Rutherford is the only one playing this right. Dillard et al seem obsessed with attacking Rauner because Democrats are willing to support him. That seems like a bizarre strategy in a dark blue state.

    Attack him for being an out of touch billionaire who games the system. Not for having support from Democrats.


  27. - Timmeh - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 3:33 pm:

    “It just seems like bad politics for a guy who made an ad for a Democrat to complain about another guy having ties to a Democrat.”

    The only bad politics is the politics that makes you lose.


  28. - chad - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 3:35 pm:

    This is good. Dillard should keep it up by trying to define Rauner prior to the paid media phase — it benefits all other candidates.

    That said, Dillard is so non-resourced that it is hard to see how Dillard moves forward once the contesting commericals begin to fly.

    How does Dillard reconstitute a sellable image? He’s the liberal President’s friend who speaks at the anti-gay rally. What is his brand now?


  29. - Norseman - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 3:47 pm:

    Johnny Q. - This is a Republican Primary. Dillard and the others have to ensure that they look better to Republican voters than their opponents or else they lose. If he wins, Dillard can then worry about looking good to Democrat voters.


  30. - wordslinger - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 3:48 pm:

    –Egads. Who was Rahm supposed to endorse? Sheesh. There’s only one guy in the race in his party. How would the average guy on the street somehow interpret a Democratic Mayor endorsing a Democratic Governor helpful to any one of 4 Republicans?–

    That spin works if you fell off the turnip truck.

    Chicago mayors, with very few exceptions, are A-OK with a GOP governor. Because then they’re the biggest Democrat in the state. It goes back decades.

    Ask Neil Hartigan or Glenn Poshard how Richard M. went all out for them. Or those who worked for Dawn Netsch. Or Blago or Quinn, for that matter.


  31. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 3:58 pm:

    ===Close enough to cross party lines and cut a commercial in a Democratic primary for his buddy.===

    I guess giving Tens of thousands of Dollars to Rahm Emanuel and Rich Daley is … ok … with you - DuPage Rep -?

    “Look, If Payton Prep Clouter Bruce Rauner wants to give tens of thousands of dollars to Rich Daley and Rahm Emaunel or Democrats, that is A-OK …If PPC makes one commerical…”

    lol

    Bruce Rauner gave monies to finance Rich Daley and Rahm Emanuel campaigns.

    What, if you give ove $90K to Daley and Rahm you’re fine?

    Um, no … according to polling out there


  32. - Chavez-respecting Obamist - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 4:05 pm:

    Reading the comments makes me wonder why we even bother having 2 parties in this state. They’re all in bed with each other.


  33. - Anonymous - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 4:11 pm:

    ==Chicago mayors, with very few exceptions, are A-OK with a GOP governor…==

    So are current Speakers of the Illinois House.


  34. - olddog - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 4:20 pm:

    So Emanuel “endorses” the only Democrat in the governor’s race during an editorial board meeting at Crain’s, and that’s somehow proof of a conspiracy? I’m a lot more curious about any relationship there may be between Rauner’s interest in school “reform” and what I’m reading in the comments here about Emanuel, the Chicago Plan Commission and Noble Network Charter Schools. If it points to some cozy little relationships behind the scenes there, it might explain some of Rauner’s teacher-bashing.


  35. - Darienite - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 4:48 pm:

    @Chad - Totally agree. But what is Rutherford’s brand?


  36. - wordslinger - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 4:52 pm:

    No mystery there. It’s been out in the open for a while.

    I encourage everyone to read Diane Ravitch’s new book. The hedgies, the private equity guys and their pals in office are in it for the taxpayer money and contracts. K-12 is Big Money.

    We’re seeing it UNO. Let’s shine a light on Noble.

  38. - mokenavince - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 5:28 pm:

    Wow, Machiavellian and Quinn in same sentence, scary stuff.
    Rauner would make the it an interesting race, Mike and John would like to show Quinn the door.


  39. - dupage dan - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 5:31 pm:

    Contrast one commercial made by Dillard for Obama to the ongoing, continuous, cozy, financially beneficial, relationship Rauner has had Emanuel.

    Got it? Get it? Good.


  40. - T.J. - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 5:54 pm:

    A Dillard quote that doesn’t mention Jim Edgar? I find this hard to believe.

    I had something else to post, but Downstate Weed Chewing Hick already won the thread.


  41. - walkinfool - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 5:56 pm:

    Why so much time on Rauner, none on Brady?

    Is Rauner the only real competition here?


  42. - Arthur Andersen - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 6:25 pm:

    Thanks for the book tip, word. Diane is a keen observer of these issues. Can’t wait to read it.

    To the post-Kirk, stick to this stuff, it’s what you’re best at, old friend. Avoid wingnut rallies at all cost.


  43. - Just The Way It Is One - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 7:17 pm:

    Man, politics is politics, Sen. Dillard. Rahm is backing the now-unopposed, sitting Governor from his Party. To do otherwise would be practically unthinkable–as well as to suggest that just because he’s buds with BR, that he’ll ACtually be covertly working actively behind the scenes to somehow round-up million$ in donations for Brucie and leverage thousands of votes for him to boot–Dillard’s got to be jokin’, right?

    Otherwise, there sure is some MAjor Paranoia goin’ on here with ‘ol Kirk…!


  44. - Squeezy - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 8:52 pm:

    Nothing wrong with using free press time to slum up some campaign cash. Dillard still has a couple months to get it lined up.


  45. - wordslinger - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 10:20 pm:

    AA, thanks, but whoof. C’mon!

    Miss that Midwestern Main Street GOP? How are those boys from Dixie doing? And the horse they rode in on?

    What are we going to do? None of them have s-for-brains on anything financial.

    I can’t tolerate Rauner. He’s an insult to anyone with brains. Cynical and phony beyond belief.

    Dillard is all in on the nasty crazy. His choice. Did he just get bad advice and not care, or is he a misanthrope? What say you, Cincy? Either way, bad news.

    I respect Bill Brady. Anyone who can pull a fourth at 185 in IHSA wresting deserves our respect.That ain’t easy, believe me. He’s a businessman who has hung touch after the Masters of the Universe sold us all down the river. But I don’t think he’s the goods.

    For what’s it’s worth, right now, I’m going to pull a GOP ballot to vote for Rutherford. I’m Old School/Farm Boy/Main Street Ilinois. He’s as close as I can see in the GOP to a Gerald Ford/Bod Dole Republican And I dug those guys.

    I[ll probably vote for Quinn against him, but show me Mr. Rutherford. Smack down the whack jobs and haters who are polluting the GOP, and I’m in your wheelhouse.

    Or, I’ll write in JBT. I’m ashamed that I didn’t vote for her when I could.

    Whitney? What was I thinking?

    Timing is everything, baby. Sorry.


  46. - Norseman - Thursday, Oct 24, 13 @ 10:37 pm:

    Word, there is plenty of room on the Willy bandwagon.


  47. - Ahoy! - Friday, Oct 25, 13 @ 9:26 am:

    Dillard is just plain loosing it.


  48. - chad - Friday, Oct 25, 13 @ 9:30 am:

    Darienite: Sorry for the late reply. Rutherford’s brand seems to be: “Moderate guy with conservative economic voting record who has already won stateside with crossovers.”


Sorry, comments for this post are now closed.
