CHICAGO – David Roeder, spokesman for Quinn for Illinois, released the following statement:
It’s sad that Kwame Raoul is engaging in more desperate, false attacks against Pat Quinn. Kwame Raoul himself defended Pat Quinn at a 2010 Rainbow Push event against these same charges when Quinn was attacked by Dan Hynes. Kwame Raoul’s desperate attacks are to cover up the fact that he doesn’t want voters to know who’s funding his campaign – big tobacco, big utilities, big banks, and even red light camera operators. With all those conflicts of interest, Raoul can’t be trusted to be on our side for Attorney General.
