Is it Getting Hot in Here?
- Mayor Daley said Friday he has "no problems" answering questions under oath about allegations that -- as state's attorney and as mayor -- he failed to investigate torture allegations against former Police Lt. Jon Burge.
- "If they require me to be deposed, I have no problems with that. That's all I have to say," he told reporters at police headquarters.
- Daley noted he had been "deposed already" by a special prosecutor appointed to investigate the allegations against Burge.
And as we remember, the "I don't recall" defense was exercised to its fullest extent in that deposition. But as the city settles everything that comes its way and is all too eager to give away taxpayer money, we expect another monumental settlement to wend its way to the City Council within the year.
