The Rutherford Smear job.
The Rutherford Smear job.

The latest allegations against State Treasurer Dan Rutherford have come in the form of questions about his sharing of a hotel room with his executive assistant. A Chicago Tribune story has come out that paints the treasurer and Gubernatorial candidate as some type of serial room sharer with a young male employee.

The tone of the story is the same as the tone of much of the coverage surrounding Rutherford over the past few days. The tone has been developed after a lawsuit filed in Federal court by an ex employee and unnamed sources directing reporters to look into certain things like travel records. The tone is one that journalists should not be proud of.
Lets face it the salaciousness in this coverage has not been improprieties in the type of job Rutherford has done as treasurer or would do as governor. The tone is simply “hey everybody this guy might be a gay and we dont want none of them running things”.
Rutherford has been asked and hes answered no. But that hasnt been enough for anyone who keeps looking for smoking guns to prove he is up to some seamy underground lifestyle. If he is having some type of affair with an employee while living a closeted lifestyle he is sure doing a bad job of it. ┬áThink about it, If you didnt want the world to know what you were up to Wouldnt it make more sense to pay for two rooms even if you were planning on only using one? This is just one of the questions that no one is asking because they’re too busy being led to conclusions.
