Mudslinging turns ugly in some Chicago Aldermanic races

SHARE Mudslinging turns ugly in some Chicago Aldermanic races

It’s time now for Best Game in Town, our daily look at local politics. Today, the mudslinging affecting two different Chicago wards. Former 1st ward committeeman Jesse Ruben Suarez is accused of possible criminal violations over political money that is unaccounted for. Suarez says it’s just a witch hunt from his political foes in the Near Northwest Side ward. We’ll talk about that story and about how dirt is being dished in the 7th ward. Joining us on the line to discuss is Mike Fourcher, who is running Aldertrack, a subscription only newsletter and site covering the municipal election and Sun-Times Political Writer and columnist for Early & Often, Dan Mihalopolous.
