The [Tuesday] Papers

"I have it on good authority that Bruce Rauner the GOP candidate for governor, is outsourcing part of his campaign to Michigan," Bernie Schoenburg writes for the Springfield State Journal-Register.

"That's because when I was at home Thursday, I got a call from a woman who said she was with the Rauner campaign. My clue that she was not from here was that she did not know how to pronounce 'Blagojevich' and even messed up the name 'Cullerton' on the first try."

If she was really "with" the Rauner campaign, she'd know you pronounce those names "Quinn."

*

Let's pause right now to note that the URL for this article contains the word "Obituaries."

Back to Schoenburg:

"[W]hen I asked, say that she was calling from Grand Rapids, Michigan, and worked for what she called Victory Phone Lines."

At least Rauner merely outsourced instead of offshored this one, though I'd love to hear "Blagojevich" pronounced with a Cayman accent

*

"It turns out the Rauner campaign has spent, in the GOP primary and the current race leading to Nov. 4, a total of more than $295,000 with Victory Phones, records filed with the State Board of Elections show."

I'm not sure that's a lot of money, but here's the important part:

"The script the caller was trying to follow . . . talked of improper hiring at the Illinois Department of Transportation and 'Pat Quinn's early release program,' which she said included 'murderers.'

"The Associated Press, in reviewing a TV ad Rauner's campaign is running about that 2009 early release program that included 230 offenders who had been convicted of violent crimes or those involving weapons, reported that nobody among those released early was serving a sentence for murder."
