4 of Rauner’s communication team resign

Four members of Governor Bruce Rauner’s communications have resigned following a controversial statement released on the governor’s behalf. Last week a political cartoon depicting an African American child asking a white lawmaker for money was deemed racist by both Republican and Democratic critics. Rauner’s communication team released a statement saying the governor would not comment further as quote “a white man.” Rauner later said the comment did not reflect his views.
