Tom Tunney’s stealth attempt to repeal the foie gras ban just passed in the City Council 37 to 6.

Joe Moore was pissed. After what some say was Tunney’s “unprecedented” end run around regular procedural rules, he scolded the council for not allowing a debate on the matter: “Today it happened to me. Tomorrow it could happen to you.”

“Thank you Alderman Joe “Foie Gras” Moore,” replied the mayor with a dismissive rap of the gavel.

Over at Hot Doug’s the only Chicagoan busted under the ban, Doug Sohn, says he’ll bring back his foie gras-duck sausage as soon as he sees the law on paper.
