Emanuel brushes aside contractor’s organized crime ties allegations

The Chicago Sun-Times reports:
Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Tuesday brushed aside allegations that the owner of a company awarded a $99 million O’Hare Airport janitorial contract was the longtime business partner of a man with ties to organized crime.
Why this is too much even for Laura Garza of the SEIU who's calling for an investigation:
As for Emanuel’s attempts to slough off the alleged mob ties, Garza said, “Lisa Madigan in 2004 labeled the Daddano’s as mobsters. We’re calling on the inspector general and the attorney general to investigate this [to determine] whether they’re a reputable contractor to do business with the city.
No word yet on this story from Rahm's "patronage" army.
