Gov Candidates Make Accusations on TransparencyCHICAGO (AP) - Allegations of hiding information and impeding transparency are bubbling up in the race for Illinois governor.
Republican Bruce Rauner was in Springfield Friday. He claims Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn is hiding and creating diversions while federal officials probe a 2010 anti-violence program. A legislative panel is also investigating. Rauner's campaign released a television ad Friday blasting Quinn.
Quinn spokeswoman Brooke Anderson calls Rauner's allegations "laughable." She says Quinn has answered reporters' questions almost daily about the investigations.
Anderson says Rauner needs to answer questions about campaign donations to Chicago Democrats after a business partially owned by his investment firm won a Cook County contract. Earlier this week Quinn said Rauner should release full tax returns, including for 2013.
The Illinois governor's race is one of the most competitive nationwide.
