    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:

    “Help!!! Police!!! Police!!! He won’t let go of my hand!!! He won’t stop saying ‘Shake up Springfield’!!! I can’t stand it any more!!! Heelllppp!!!”


  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’…”


  6. - bottom rung. - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 3:26 pm:

    “I’m probably in the .01%”
    “Ahhh cool story bro!”


  7. - LincolnLounger - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 3:27 pm:

    Look, his pocket protector matches his $15 watch!


  9. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 3:28 pm:

    “Hey Governor Rendell, it’s Bruce…”


  10. - GA Watcher - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 3:28 pm:

    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:

    “And then, O M G, and then, he asked me to dance!”


  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:

    FREE BEER…..My bro is giving out FREE BEER. Vote for this old dude for FREE BEER!!!

    Yeah!


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

    Rauner: “You will donate $1,000 to my campaign.”
    Guy: “Owe, owe, owe, yes, yes, I’ll give you the money.”

    At least somebody gets to dip their hand into Rauner’s pocket. The government sure didnt.

    “Hey Honey! Quick, get my picture! It’s Mr. Burns from The Simpsons!”


  25. - enoughalready - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 3:36 pm:

    Headline:
    “Man tries to pull out Bruce Rauner’s heart only to realize he doesn’t have one.”


  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.


  28. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 3:43 pm:

    “Hey Bruce, check out over your right shoulder, Quinn lost a bet and has to wear a Rauner t-shirt all day”
