Chicago Tribune: Illinois Gubernatorial Candidate Full Of Crap

Once in a while, a political figure gets called on his bull@#$% (via Political Wire):

Illinois gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner (R) has a new TV ad "showing off his modest watch, a symbol of his down-to-earth frugality," the Chicago Tribune reports.

Says his official bio: "Bruce has never let his success change him. He still drives a 20-year-old camper van, wears an $18 watch, and stays in the cheapest hotel room he can find when he's on the road."

But he doesn't mention his real estate portfolio which includes nine homes in Illinois, Florida, Montana, Wyoming, Utah and "a penthouse in a landmark co-op building along New York's Central Park, which property records show Rauner bought in 2005 for $10 million."

Down-to-earth frugality means never having to hide your nine pieces of expensive property, including a Central Park penthouse co-op.

It's great to see someone call him on it.

Not that I like the incumbent Quinn.

Quite frankly, a pox on both these guys.
