Chicago Reader gives Bruce Rauner an “award”

In the December 23rd issue of the Reader, Ben Joravsky and Mick Dumke give out their third annual awards for “political ‘achievement.'” Here’s a good one:

for pretending to be an average Joe when you’re actually a gazillionaire who has so many homes it’s hard to keep track of them all: Bruce Rauner, Republican candidate for governor, who’s running ads depicting himself as a man of the people even though he brought in $53 million last year from his hedge fund operation and owns at least eight properties, including a waterfront villa in Florida, a condo in an upscale Utah ski resort, a penthouse in New York City, and ranches in Montana and Wyoming. Also, Rauner may have made calls to powerful friends to get his daughter into elite, public, selective-enrollment Walter Payton College Prep.”
