She’s not on the ticket with Governor Pat Quinn this fall, but Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon is going on the attack against Quinn’s Republican opponent, Bruce Rauner.
Simon is calling on Rauner to release his complete 2013 tax returns.
Rauner has released partial information from 2011 and 2012… which showed that he paid no Social Security or Medicare taxes either year, despite income in the tens of millions of dollars.
Simon says Rauner needs to be transparent and accountable to voters.
But Rauner’s campaign says Quinn is just trying to distract attention away from the scandals affecting his administration.
