Ed Bus is sick of Chicago politics

If you follow Chicago politics, you know Alderman Ed Bus of the 53rd Ward. The fictional persona of WBEZ’s Justin Kaufmann brings out his character inspired by old city politics as part of the comedy troupe Schadenfreude. And after many years running the Ward, Alderman Bus is angry. He tells us why he’s sick of the way politics are now run (he likes them dirtier), and why he thinks elections are a waste of time (he likes disengaged voters). You can spend office hours with Alderman Bus tonight at 6:30 at The Hideout.
