The Chicago Reporter’s ace political reporters Ben Joravsky and Mick Dumke have an interesting new report out profiling Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s propensity to make more time to meet with millionaires than almost anyone else. They also chronicle how difficult it can be for this information to ever see the light of day.
That an incredibly good fundraiser like Emanuel makes time for the people that make his elections possible is hardly shocking, but as is usually the case with Bemke (Bumke? Joravke? I’m really pushing for a celebrity couple type name for these two guys. Any suggestions from the US Weekly crowd?), it’s an impressively detailed and specific account of the numbers that is new and useful.
