New wiki digs deep into city, state and Congressional politicians

Many people say Chicago politics is the best game in town. It continues to be fascinating because of the colorful characters that occupy that world. Some of the same names capture headlines, and when you dig deeper you learn the connections between Chicago pols run deep and wide, all the way to the state legislature and the Congressional level. A politician’s campaign page, or official Website, shares details they want out there, but it’s up to Websites like Aldertrack, which cater to political junkies, to reveal more of the story and how they’ve risen to power. Aldertrack co-founder Mike Foucher joins us to share some of the more interesting tidbits from the clout wiki they officially launched yesterday. (Flickr/Justin Brockie)
