(CHICAGO) . In the race for mayor, former Police Supt Garry McCarthy and County Board President Toni Preckwinkle are tangling over the infamous police-killing case of Laquan McDonald.
Preckwinkle’s out with a new ad celebrating her role getting the Laquan McDonald case front and center.
McCarthy and also Lori Lightfoot say she’s just trying to divert attention from accused Ald Ed Burke arranging a fishy $10,000 contribution for her.
That got under Preckwinkle’s skin.
“I don’t know how Garry McCarthy can live with himself. Ya know, he covered up the murder of a young African-American man.”
Preckwinkle’s demeanor was defensive at her brief presser and she walked out rather than defend her hiring of the under-qualified son of Burke to a big county job.
