An amended lawsuit from a former employee of Illinois’ treasurer now names Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign as a defendant.
But today’s filing in federal court doesn’t include any specific allegations of wrongdoing by Romney’s campaign. The suit focuses on Treasurer Dan Rutherford. It accuses him of pressuring workers to do political work for his and Romney’s campaigns.
The amended complaint also repeats allegations in the original suit. Those include allegations by former employee Edmund Michalowski that Rutherford sexually harassed him. Rutherford has adamantly denied those allegations.
