Following allegations that Representative Nick Sauer used nude photographs of his former girlfriend to "catfish" men into lewd conversations through a phony Instagram account, Conservative Party gubernatorial candidate Sam McCann made the following statement:

Nick Sauer's alleged actions are deeply disturbing on many levels, and they destroy Sauer's attempt to portray himself as a conservative. Illinois' Conservative Party has no room for individuals who demonstrate this kind of sick, troubling behavior.

Bruce Rauner and his enablers put Nick Sauer in office, and appointed him to paid leadership positions like the Toll Highway Authority board. Bruce Rauner can't distance himself from Nick Sauer now. This is just one more example of Bruce Rauner's bad judgment embarrassing our state.
