IL: Rutherford Denies Sexual Harassment Claims

A former state worker accusing Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford of sexual harassment has a history of financial problems but he says he has a new job and his lawsuit isn't motivated by money.

Ed Michalowski is accusing the Republican candidate for governor of making inappropriate advances and making employees do political work on state time.

Rutherford denies the claims and says Michalowski and his lawyer offered to keep the allegations "under wraps" for $300,000.
