Lawyers for Edmund Michalowski have filed in federal court an amended lawsuit against Ill. Treasurer Dan Rutherford.

Michalowski says he and others were forced to do political work for and make donations to the Rutherford and Mitt Romney campaigns in order to keep their jobs.

The amended suit reiterates Michalowski’s claims of sexual harassment by Rutherford.

Attorney Dana Kurtz is part of Michalowski’s team. She joined the Cochran Show before her news conference to discuss the new charges.
