The ongoing corruption investigation in Chicago city government continues. Mayor Richard M. Daley of Chicago was questioned by federal authorities on Friday. There was a story about that in the Chicago Tribune, Crain's Chicago Business, Illinipundit, and Channel 2 News Chicago. According to Channel 2's political reporter Mike Flannery Mayor Daley may be the first mayor to have been ever questioned by authorities in city hall. I've read in I believe Crain's that his father, Mayor Richard J. Daley, was questioned by authorities as well as the current mayor's more immediate predecessor Harold Washington.
Daley said in his press conference after his interview with federal authorities that he didn't believe he was the target of any investigation. Could the mayor be on his last legs as the mayor of Chicago. Especially with rather credible and well known challengers who are coming up to the plate. We'll have to see.
