Guys, Bruce Rauner is just like me and you. His campaign bio boasts, “He still drives a 20-year-old camper van, wears an $18 watch, and stays in the cheapest hotel room he can find when he’s on the road.”
But Rauner’s attempt to paint himself as the everyman is hilarious if not insulting. Last week it came to light that he paid $100,000 for an extra parking spot at one of his nine residences. How very ordinary!
Pro-tip Bruce: If you have a net worth of “nearly $1 billion” and joke about being in the .01 percent, your charade probably isn’t fooling anyone.
