As a man used to the corridors of power, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel faces a serious challenge to staying there.
It appears the coverup was not merely the blue line but also the mayor's reelection campaign last winter and spring. Chicago media has a bit of a black eye on this as well. It was an independent journalist who pursued in the courts the release of the dash cam tape.
Also the $5M paid to the family with no questions and no suit filed should have been a red flag.
It's amazing how long this was kept covered up.
