The Daley Way
Anyone who forgets who actually runs things in this city, county and state really ought to read Kass from last Friday:
- You might think the mayor is going ahead with his plans over the objections of his citizens because clout heavy rich people like Gigi Pritzker want it so. You'd be wrong. If Sorich stood next to Pritzker, she wouldn't know him. She might even flip him the keys to her car and tell him to be careful.
But without Sorich, Daley wouldn't be able to defy his city and the local alderman by pushing for the museum that no one wants.
He owns the courts, the governor, the next governor, the county board, etc. Go read the whole thing.
