  • The mayor’s millionaire club, over a year ago.

A few days ago, I got calls from several readers eager to tell me the Tribune had stolen my story and splashed it on their front page under the headline “Emanuel makes time for corporate execs.”

It was what you might call an update of “The mayor’s millionaire club,” my story from over a year ago, as our on-top-of-it readers reported.

Actually, I should say our story ’cause I wrote it with Mick Dumke. In fact, Mick deserves some kind of medal for dealing with the FOIA hell Mayor Rahm’s aides put him through when he tried to get a copy of the mayor’s daily appointment calendar for his first few months in office.

Geez, you’d think they were trying to cover something up.
