The [Friday] Papers

By Steve Rhodes / Posted on June 24, 2016

Abbreviated edition.

"Motorists who park illegally in private lots and return to find their vehicles booted may soon have to pay a little extra for using credit cards to pay the $140 removal fee," the Sun-Times reports.

"Ald. Emma Mitts (37th) chairman of the City Council's License Committee, wants to empower private booters now roaming free in more than half of Chicago to charge a 'convenience fee' to recoup the processing fee they must absorb when motorists pay with plastic."

Emma Mitts, you are Today's Worst Person In Chicago.
