Chicago has some serious problems. Homicides have increased. The indictment of the Mayor’s hand-picked CEO by his hand-picked school board is bad news.

“It was a blatant conflict-of-interest contract approved by Rahm’s hand-picked board of education. He’s fighting not to release all the documents — including his emails — but if Rahm didn’t OK this deal, I’ll eat my White Sox cap with sport peppers and yellow mustard.”
