It has nothing to do with this story.

Elected officials used to work for no pay – a long time ago! They were public servants who felt it was their duty to serve for a brief time and then go back to their profession. They were honored to have the trust of their fellow citizens and decisions they made were FOR the citizens.
Congress now has single digit approval ratings and most other politicians don’t fare much better. It’s hard to find an actual public servant anymore. Instead we have a crop of professional politicians willing to do whatever it takes to get elected or move from one office to another. Public trust must be earned. George Washington was a natural because he was a man of immense integrity. Have we quit expecting at least some integrity?
Illinois Review posted a list of Rutherford campaign staff in January: http://illinoisreview.typepad.com/illinoisreview/2014/01/rutherford-rolls-out-campaign-staff-list.html
One guy the Rutherford campaign hired has some background problems: Randy Allen Peterson
Peterson has a pretty extensive police record. Public trust is difficult to earn having Randy Allen Peterson promoting your campaign.
