Tony Peraica Knows All, Tweets All

It's been quite a week for Tony Peraica. His live-twittering of the Cook County Board's vote to repeal the one-percent tax increase put him front and center in the ongoing Saga of the Toddler. Then his house was the intended target of gunshots fired into a neighbor's home instead. Undeterred, Peraica has ventured on, leading the fight against the Toddler's veto threat (or lack thereof). And just because it's the weekend, don't think Peraica is resting. Early this morning, Peraica played Woodward & Bernstein and tweeted, "Inside Stroger Admin. sources indicate that Todd will NOT veto sales tax repeal on Monday." We'll have to wait and see if Peraica's correct, but at this point we're inclined to think his scoop is probably dead on.
