• Rahm and Quigley: In TIF-top shape.

In their ceaseless effort to give the mayor credit for everything, Cty Hall flacks announced the sun rose in the east, thanks to Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

Not really. The sun did rise in the east, but the mayor didn’t try to take credit for it. At least, not yet.

He did, however, take credit for the $29.5 million River Point TIF handout that for better or worse had actually been cooked up by his predecessor—the mayor who will not be named—and dutifully adopted by the Chicago City Council in the fall of 2008.
