SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Republican candidate for governor Bruce Rauner (ROW’-nur) says his rival — Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn — should “come clean” on the 2010 anti-violence program that is under federal investigation.

The businessman also told reporters in Springfield Friday that a legislative investigation of the Neighborhood Recovery Initiative should continue despite a Justice Department request to stop. The Legislative Audit Commission will decide next week whether to proceed.

Rauner says Quinn is “hiding” instead of releasing key documents.

Quinn has said he fixed the $55 million program’s problems and wrongdoers should be held accountable.

Rauner dismissed a suggestion that Quinn might not have known details. Rauner’s campaign has said Rauner didn’t know about one of his companies’ contributions to Cook County Democrats after winning a multimillion-dollar contract.
