An attorney for Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford says he won't release the findings of an independent investigation into allegations that Rutherford subjected employees to sexual harassment and political pressure.
Rutherford brought in an outside investigator after an employee in his office made the allegations. That employee has now sued Rutherford. Chicago-based attorney Peter Andjelkovich will represent Rutherford in that lawsuit.
He told The Associated Press that it was his decision, not Rutherford’s, to keep the information secret. He said information found during the investigation would be used to fight the lawsuit in court, not through the public.
