(Chicago) In the race for mayor, there is an explosive charge this afternoon from one of Rahm Emanuel’s challengers.
Alderman Bob Fioretti is playing the Zack card. He is claiming Rahm will not press charges against the muggers of his son Zack, “When your kid gets his tooth almost knocked out. When your kid is meeting-whatever he was doing at ten o’clock at night on the phone and had to leave the house. What message does that send to every community about let’s not snitch when they’re saying we’ve got to take an active role in our communities. Mr. Mayor, you’ve failed us again!”
Fioretti’s shot assumes police know who Zack Emanuel’s muggers are, but all police have said they know is who was in possession of Zack’s cell phone after the mugging. Rahm’s response is, "It's sad that Bob Fioretti's campaign has come to this, and it doesn't warrant a response."
