How come Chicago aldermen didn't show this kind of backbone

"House Democrats needed only one Republican vote last week to pass a $3 billion public works plan. House Minority Leader Tom Cross (R-Oswego) vowed they wouldn't get it unless they provided an itemized accounting of how the money would be spent."

But Hizzoner Richie Daley rams through a 75 year lease (that will obviously benefit his relatives) and there is no time for the aldermen to get the details? Hell, only a couple of them even asked for details.

  1. Vote out your aldermen. They screwed us on this one. Tom Tunney is getting voted out!
