Rate the new Illinois Freedom PAC TV ad

Tuesday, Oct 28, 2014

* As I told subscribers today, the union-backed Illinois Freedom PAC has a new TV ad. Here it is

* Script…

Male Narrator: “She will never get another job anywhere, ever. I will bankrupt her. I will bury her. We’ll hurt you and your family.”

Female Narrator: According to court documents, these are the words spoken by Bruce Rauner about a female CEO he personally hired.

Threats to her family. Threats to destroy her security. Threats to ruin her life.

Bruce Rauner: Not fit to be Governor.

    “Here come the bots, the Mighty Rauner-bots”.


  2. - Under Further Review - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 10:14 am:

    Court documents generally consist of allegations rather than facts. That is why there are trials to determine what the facts are.


  3. - circularfiringsquad - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 10:15 am:

    A+
    Not fit is the best knot to wrap around that noggin. His wealth is not important. His skillless approach to problem solving is a huge disqualifier.
    Still lying about his tax hike plan.
    Unwilling to take any responsibilities for his bizwiz scandals
    And that laundry list of tax deductible donations as his entrée to every issue make you puke.
    What Illinois needs is for a few papers to wise up and recant those ill conceived endorsements


  4. - Mcleaniac - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 10:16 am:

    Ouch ! If this ad runs in enough markets, with enough frequency it could have an impact. Even more damning than the anti-Brady puppy ad.

    @Under Further Review

    Tell it to the settlement.


  6. - truthteller - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 10:16 am:

    When you add up the stories about Rauner, the words “not fit to be governor” sum them up nicely.


  7. - Harry - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 10:19 am:

    As under Further Review writes, allegations aren’t facts. But people don’t think while watching TV, they react emotionally, and this ad hits the emotional notes pretty well, so it should be effective


  8. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 10:20 am:

    Sworn depos are under the threat of perjury.

    It’s as impactful as the original, packaged a bit different, but reinforces who they believe Rauner to be, through the words of a sworn deposition.


  9. - Under Further Review - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 10:21 am:

    @Ducky:

    Did the settlement contain an express admission of fault?

    I did not think so.


  10. - DuPage - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 10:27 am:

    I would not want Rauner for a boss, or for governor.


  11. - OneMan - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 10:30 am:

    == Sworn depos are under the threat of perjury. ==

    We have a congressman who had some stuff said in a sworn depo that suffice to say were ‘problematic’ same person stood by him..


  12. - walker - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 10:31 am:

    Solid. Will depend on the scope of the buy. Some markets are still reachable.

    Note: I saw 6 Rauner ads last night on cable TV in suburbs, one Quinn. That $6Billion new money is having some impact.


  13. - Ducky LaMoore - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 10:34 am:

    @Under Further Review

    Then why settle if you are not at-fault? Because what can come out in court can be worse! You don’t need an admission of guilt to come to a reasonable conclusion.


  14. - Under Further Review - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 10:36 am:

    Thousands of cases settle because it is cheaper than conducting trials and pursuing actual verdicts.


  15. - How Ironic - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 10:40 am:

    @UFR

    Settle for $500,000? That’s a bit over attorney fees. One doesn’t settle for 1/2 Mil because they are ‘nice guys’. They settle because the bean counters have said a loss at trial would be 10x it.

    Brucie said money wasn’t a problem. He had plenty of cash, and lawyers to ‘destroy’ her, and her family.

    He had a losing hand, and decided to cut and run, before he was handed a very large verdict.


  16. - Empty Suit - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 10:42 am:

    Right now people have tuned out the ads the mailers and aren’t answering the phone. Unless there is some new revelation it’s just all white noise.


  17. - Stuff Happens - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 10:52 am:

    I’d like to see Quinn put out some positive ads. Something about job growth, like the Cronus fertilizer plant, the new Amazon facility, Coyote Logistics…


  18. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 10:54 am:

    7 days out. Where were these ads last week?


  19. - A guy... - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 11:13 am:

    More of the same. If they don’t believe you the first or second time…just say it louder and more often. Someone must be undecided who needs this drummed into their head.


  20. - Norseman - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 11:29 am:

    Not as good as the Quinn ad, but it suffices to reinforce the issue.


  21. - Stuff Happens - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 11:52 am:

    Oops, I just realized I posted in the wrong thread.


  22. - too obvious - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 1:17 pm:

    Great!

    And Carol Marin can’t complain about this one.


  23. - Under Further Review - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 2:06 pm:

    @How ironic:

    So the Plaintiff settled for chump change so Rauner could save a few bucks?

    Why not take it to trial and go for the gold? The decision to settle was made by the Plaintiff.

    You are reading too much into this or you have never been to civil court.


  24. - How Ironic - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 3:15 pm:

    @UFR,

    No, I’m taking GTCRauner’s word on this. They just settled ‘because it was the nice thing to do’. That’s how big business runs now. Sue them, case has no merits (per Rauner) but they just throw 1/2 Mil at it because they are ‘nice’.

    Sure hope the State doesn’t get sued often when GTCRauner is in charge. We’ll go broke with all the ‘nice guy’ settlements.

    You can be obtuse about it all you want. Rauner had the cash to bleed her dry. If money was no object for him, he should have forced her hand and took it to court.

    Oh that’s right….that pesky deposition. I wonder if that had any affect?


  25. - LeavingIllinois - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 9:24 pm:

    Union financed PAC. Must be a close race. Going for opponents throat.
