The [Friday] Papers

"Five days after Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned from Congress, his wife, Ald. Sandi Jackson, filed a series of amendments to her ward committee's campaign fund, revealing dozens of previously undisclosed transactions that went back three years," the Sun-Times reports.

"That includes at least $13,000 in previously undisclosed transfers from her husband's congressional account into her ward organization account, a Sun-Times review of campaign records show.

"In all, Sandi Jackson's ward organization filed eight amended reports, dating back to 2009. Some of the corrected reports now indicate negative balances - something that an official with the Illinois State Board of Elections said could result in a review."

Perhaps the work of Whitney Burns - in response to pressure from the feds to set things right.

McCaskey Field
"Presiding over her first meeting today as head of the Illinois Sports Facilities Authority, incoming chief executive officer Kelly Kraft sought to address the growing debt load from Soldier Field renovations completed in 2001," the Tribune reports.

"Kraft and the public agency's seven-member board of directors agreed to select financial advisors who would determine how to refinance the bonds for the project. The public's share of the costs has been estimated at $432 million."

The Chicago Bears franchise has last been valued at $1.19 billion. Perhaps they can get off the bus helping.

Rahmnomics
"Hundreds of workers at O'Hare International Airport are losing their jobs Friday under a new deal with the city of Chicago," ABC7 Chicago reports.

"The city says the deal will save millions."

It's not exactly fair, Rahm acknowledged.

Oh wait. That's what he said about a tax break for the Merc.

*

So Rahm is taking from janitors, teachers, schools, the poor, police officers, firefighters, the mentally ill and CTA customers and giving to developers, corporations and billionaires (with more on the way).

It's Rahm Hood!

*

"Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Thursday that restoring free water service to churches and nonprofit agencies as some aldermen suggest would reverse a campaign promise he has fulfilled," the Tribune reports.

After all, that was the "cornerstone" of his economic agenda.

Oh wait.

*

So add churches, hospitals and non-profits to the list. It's Rahm Paul!

"[Tyree] Johnson, 44, needs the two paychecks to pay rent for his apartment at a single-room occupancy hotel on the city's North Side. While he's worked at McDonald's stores for two decades, he still doesn't get 40 hours a week and makes $8.25 an hour, minimum wage in Illinois," Bloomberg Businessweek reports.

For those not familiar with medical jargon, MCL stands for Major Chipmunk Likeness.
