CHICAGO (CBS) — A key alderman on Wednesday scoffed at Legislative Inspector General Faisal Khan’s lawsuit against the mayor, the City Council, and several committee chairs, seeking to force them to better fund his office.
WBBM Newsradio Political Editor Craig Dellimore reports Budget Committee Chairwoman Carrie Austin (34th) said she doesn’t understand how Khan can even sue the city for more money in his budget.
Austin said the council has already given him money.
“Where do he think the money falls from? Out of a cherry tree or something?” she said. “You know, it’s like, come on. Our budget is tight. He just wants to be able to spend willy nilly.”
