Republican candidate for governor Bruce Rauner is facing a new line of attack… accusing him of using his wealth to buy a coveted slot at a prestigious charter school for his daughter.
The Chicago Sun-Times reported that Rauner made a $250,000 donation to the school after pulling strings to get his daughter admitted. Another GOP contender, Kirk Dillard, says he wonders what deserving student missed out on their chance to attend the school because their space went to Rauner’s daughter instead.
But Rauner is fighting back… accusing all three of his Republican rivals of using clout for political gain.
Rauner says Dillard, Bill Brady and Dan Rutherford all used their legislative offices to try and help constituents gain admission to the University of Illinois.
