Rauner is encouraging callers to report incidents to the "Pat Quinn Corruption Hotline" amid a Cook County State's Attorneys Office investigation into Gov. Pat Quinn's 2010 anti-violence program.
Rauner's campaign claims caller identities will be protected to "prevent political retaliation."
"Pat Quinn has expanded Rod Blagojevich's culture of corruption in Illinois and these investigations are just the tip of the iceberg," said Rauner Campaign Spokesperson Mike Schrimpf in a statement. "We know there are good, honest, hard-working people around Illinois who have information about Pat Quinn's corruption and patronage schemes. If you see something, say something ? call the toll-free Quinn Corruption Hotline at 855-PAT-TIPS and report Pat Quinn's wrongdoing. The people of Illinois deserve to know the truth."
Rauner was in Springfield Wednesday to deliver almost 600,000 signatures in an effort to place his proposed lawmaker term limits measure on the November ballot.
