Feds secretly recorded city clerk
Now it looks like the city clerk of Chicago James Laski is somehow tied into the Hired Truck investigation. He is said to have made incriminating statements on secret tape recordings. According to the Sun-Times article he wants to work out a deal to save his pension. Laski was looking to advance his political career beyond the city clerk to either state treasurer or mayor. If it is proven that he is somehow involved this isn't good news for him. I remember that in the last election in 2003, Daley was looking to replace him but that didn't come to fruition so Mr. Laski has one more term.
