    This guy just slipped me a $50 to vote for him, and asked me to tell my friends and family.


  2. - Rich Miller - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 3:20 pm:

  3. - Interested - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 3:21 pm:

    [Reaching into a voidless chest cavity…] “Hey Freddie you owe me twenty bucks…Brucie here is heartless!”


  4. - OneMan - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 3:23 pm:

    Rauner is quick to check a well wishers t-shirt to make sure it has no flags on it…

    Quinn’s trailer gets a little too close to Bruce.


  5. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 3:26 pm:

    “Here’s the guy who wanted to buy one if my Swisher Sweets and asked if I had change for a grand! A Grand! This guy! The smallest bill he had was a ‘G’…”

    Hey everybody, Bruce just promised to email his budget plan to me at 12:01 a.m. on November 5!


  11. - Stones - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 3:29 pm:

    “What’s your position on legalized weed, man?”


  12. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 3:29 pm:

    “He said it! I heard him! He just said it!… He said ‘Slip and Sue’…Evelyn, he called you ‘Slip and Sue’!”


  13. - The End Is Near - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 3:30 pm:

    Son of former nursing home resident lets loose vengeful laugh while executing “five point palm exploding heart technique” on former GTCR honcho Bruce Rauner.


  14. - bottom rung. - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 3:30 pm:

  17. - 47th Ward - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 3:32 pm:

    This guy is great. I love it. How much do you want for him? Tell Schrimpf put him in the car and be sure to leave the window open a crack so he can get some air. Can’t wait until Diana meets this little guy!


  18. - Howard - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 3:33 pm:

    Is that governor Quinn in the background?


  19. - Spliff - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 3:33 pm:

  20. - Norseman - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 3:33 pm:

    Rauner: “You will donate $1,000 to my campaign.”

  26. - Lil Squeezy - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 3:37 pm:

    Spliff,

    You may have nailed it. It does appear as if Rauner just walked into a party and said “the tabs on me”


  27. - anon - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 3:40 pm:

    RAUNER: This guy came cheap. Only had to slip him a $1000 for the handshake.
