This Could Be Interesting
- Mayor Daley's former patronage chief, Robert Sorich, recently testified under a grant of immunity before a federal grand jury investigating City Hall corruption, his lawyer said Thursday.
- Sorich -- convicted in June of taking part in a scheme to award city jobs and promotions to candidates with political connections -- appeared before the grand jury last week after he was subpoenaed, Durkin said. However, he said his client is "neither cooperating nor refusing to cooperate" with the government.
This makes the appearance of a former union official and alleged member of the Chicago Outfit at Sorich's fundraiser the other day that much more interesting. Perhaps our sometime visitor Bob Cooley could shed some light on how the Mob does business with City Hall and advise any of our readers as to the messages the Mafia might decide to broadcast by sending Bruno Caruso to a fundraiser?
