Which 28 Aldermen Signed the Denied Petition?

By Margaret Lyons in News on Oct 25, 2007 9:15PM

Judge Joan Lefkow handed 28 aldermen their asses today, denying their request to force the City to disclose the names of the police officers accused of brutality. Lefkow said that the case is currently being appealed (busy day at the 7th Circuit), but if the aldermen want to sue the City, they can.

Have you been wondering which 28 aldermen signed the petition? We sure have. We called Manny Flores's office and were told there was no list. We called Joe Moore's office, and the person who answered had no idea what we were talking about. We called Toni Preckwinkle's office, where again, the person who answered had no idea what we were talking about. We got the damn list from the aldermen's lawyers:

These are the aldermen

Toni Preckwinkle
Manuel Flores
