Bruce Rauner

And might shortly be on their sixth, and that kind of lack of continuity, that lack of stability it, it’s difficult on a child. It just makes me sad.” -- Chicago Tonight
 Rahm Emanuel to Roger Goodell
 “Just call me. I’ll take care of it for you … You don’t call anybody else....” -- Sun-Times
