An Illinois Republican candidate for governor is being accused of sexual harassment. ABC News reports a federal complaint has been filed on behalf of a former employee of Treasurer Dan Rutherford. The man's lawyer Christine Svenson says at least twice Rutherford harassed him but Rutherford says the allegations were stirred up by rival candidate Bruce Rauner and denied any inappropriate conduct. The republican primary will be held in five weeks.
