Tribune's Zorn Digs Up Emanuel's Freddie Mac Past for View

The Sun-Times dipped deep into its archives Monday to dredge up Gery Chico's time as chairman of the law firm Altheimer & Gray when he was running for Senate, and how that contrasts with his "Gery Chico's story is a Chicago story" narrative he's been pushing in his mayoral campaign. Turns out over at the Tribune, Eric Zorn was also drilling down to look back at Rahm Emanuel's time as a board member at the now-infamous mortgage giant Freddie Mac.

The articles Zorn links to paint a picture of a politician, at the very least, unaware or uncaring about the chaos surrounding him while his bank account swelled. Bookmark Zorn's links, folks.
