Top Rauner Donor Finances Roy Moore Campaign
Chicago, IL – A new report has pegged top Rauner donor Richard Uihlein as a chief financier behind Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore’s campaign. Moore has been accused of pursuing inappropriate sexual relations with underage girls, including the sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl.
The revelation comes after an alleged agreement between Rauner, Dan Proft, and the Uihlein-backed Illinois Policy Institute where Rauner agreed to hire top IPI staffers in exchange for $30 million in political contributions for legislative races. Uihlein has separately contributed over $2.5 million to Rauner campaign efforts.
“Bruce Rauner needs to return any contributions he has received from Roy Moore supporter Richard Uihlein immediately,” said Pritzker campaign spokeswoman Jordan Abudayyeh. “This is a clear case of right and wrong and it’s time for Rauner to put aside what’s politically expedient and do what’s right.”
