I Didn't Know Nuthin
Seems the mayor's lawyer is catching it, too:
On Wednesday, aldermen were buzzing about Georges' claim she didn't know City Hall's worst-kept secret: that the IGA was involved in hiring -- even for jobs supposed to be protected by the Shakman ban.
The see-no-evil claim was not new for Georges.
Also Wednesday, city Corporation Counsel Mara Georges finished testimony but revised a critical element under defense questioning.
On Tuesday, Georges said she was unaware of allegations of irregularities in city hiring until the FBI raided IGA offices last year. But she grudgingly acknowledged she was aware of possible irregularities in the 2004 hiring of the 19-year-old son of a top union official for a city building inspector job.
"Perhaps I was aware there was an allegation, yes," she said.
