Setting the record straight: The governor just lied
Monday, Jan 25, 2016
* Gov. Bruce Rauner just told reporters that I used to work for Speaker Madigan.
I have no idea where he got that, but I did work as a House page for less than a month back in 1985. Perhaps that’s what he’s talking about. I have no idea.
Lee Daniels tried this dirty trick on me back in the day. It didn’t work then because it wasn’t true.
…Adding… This became a topic during the Q&A when somebody asked Rauner about my column based on revenue growth numbers that Rauner himself supplied to members of the General Assembly. He said the numbers were “way” off, even though they were his own numbers, then went on his false tirade about me having worked for Madigan.
