The Democrat Record of Dan Rutherford’s “Alleged” Accuser

Chicago, Illinois, February 10, 2014 – For weeks, the alleged scandal involving the alleged victim of Illinois treasurer Dan Rutherford has turned the GOP race for governor into a strange circus. The accuser’s attorney, Christine Svenson, had been refusing to give a straight answer on anything…even the name of the victim.

This has been the case of the ALLEGED GOP ACCUSER WHO CANNOT BE NAMED.  

Given the timing of the allegations to coincide with the gubernatorial primary, Rutherford preemptively called out his opponent Bruce Rauner as the source of the attack a week ago. Rauner – a close friend and ally of Rahm Emanuel – has denied any involvement.  But there is good reason to believe Rauner is behind the attack. 

A federal lawsuit against Rutherford was finally filed Monday and the identity of his accuser – a longtime Democrat – is now known.

The suit charges that Rutherford sexually harassed Michalowski (a real looker) and three years ago, in 2011, groped in genitals. The suit also alleges that Rutherford’s chief of staff, Kyle Hamm, pressured Michalowski to do political work and failed to investigate his complaints.

The accuser’s name is Edmund P. Michalowski of 822 S Bishop St Apt 3 Chicago, Illinois.

According to the records and his own statements, Michalowski is a longtime Democrat operative who worked for Mayor Daley and Secretary of State Jesse White and ran a campaign for Circuit Court Judge. After resigning the Illinois treasurer’s office, Michalowski bounced back and immediately began working for the Cook County Recorder of Deeds.

Below is a copy of Michalowski’s voting record – with votes in most of the Democrat primaries – and his list of campaign contributions – again all contributions to Democrats and one contribution to Dan Rutherford. Mr. Michalowski is also having serious financial issues ranging from divorce to foreclosure and bankruptcy. The upshot: Michalowski is desperate for cash.

Here’s one vote for this as one of the foulest campaign smears ever.
