- Governor Quinn and Mayor Emanuel look happy here, but supposedly they’re not on speaking terms at the moment.
Apparently, Governor Quinn hasn’t “spoken to Mayor Emanuel in 10 days.”
The governor recently revealed that tidbit in an interview with the Sun-Times editorial board.
My guess is that the mayor’s in a snit ’cause the governor won’t rubber-stamp his deal to set up a Chicago casino completely controlled by City Hall.
Just as the governor put the kibosh on the mayor’s plans to shove public money at the Cubs to rebuild Wrigley Field.
And just as the governor might—if we’re really, really lucky—block the mayor’s cockamamy scheme to waste $55 million in property taxes building a basketball arena for DePaul University and hotel on the near-south side.
