The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that Bruce Rauner made frightening threats against a female CEO at one of his companies.
Rauner fired the CEO of an outsourcing company owned by his firm -- because she wasn't laying off enough workers.
She later testified in a sworn deposition that when she challenged the firing, Rauner made threats against her, saying “If you go legal on us, we’ll hurt you and your family.”
According to the complaint, Rauner also bragged to a board member that “She will never get another job anywhere, ever. I will bankrupt her with legal fees.”
This story is still unfolding, but it's a chilling portrait of an out-of-touch billionaire bullying people to get his way.
Bruce Rauner says he wants to run Illinois like a business, but if this is what it was like at his businesses when things went wrong, that's unacceptable.
We have to stop him, plain and simple. And we have 24 days to do it.
