Are Chicago politicians making money in new and different ways?

In the course of just over a week, Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s re-election campaign reportedly added over one million dollars to an already sizable war chest. The money came from a handful of wealthy donors (some of whom also back the Bruce Rauner election campaign) and were paid into the Mayor’s super PAC, Chicago Forward. Chicago Reader’s Mick Dumke and Ben Joravsky help us follow the money and break down what this means for city politics. Photo: Flickr/Viewminder
