We don't know what troubles us more. Either Mayor Daley doesn't fully understand how the special, secretive slush fund he runs actually gets its money.
Or he isn't being straight with taxpayers about a program that last year alone sucked nearly half a billion dollars out of their pockets.
You read that right -- nearly half a billion dollars in property tax money.
Daley recently went on a media tour, touting the benefits of TIFs or Tax Increment Financing districts, a program the mayor clearly adores.
