Now we're talking. Chicago's Inspector General David Hoffman, who has been a giant pain in Mayor Daley's ass, has
resigned to enter the Democratic primary.
Fran Spielman, the Chicago Sun-Times superb Silly Hall reporter and columnist suggest that this could be a plus for Daley, by getting Hoffman, who has done a good job focusing on city graft, out of his hair. Perhaps. Depends on who replaces Hoffman, which should become a big, big issue, if anyone still cares about the city's foul stench of corruption.
It will be a good test of whether Democrats are among those who care.
