Ald. Lyle returns money from "For a Better Chicago"...

Worlee posted this story at his site referring to this cash as "funny money":
One alderman told the Tribune she no longer wants the group's $10,000 donation.

"I'm giving it back, I just wanted you to know," said Ald. Freddrenna Lyle, 6th, who is in a runoff against Roderick Sawyer. "There has been some discussion that this group represents Republican interests, and if that is the case then the people in my ward would not like that very much.

"When I read the Chicago Tribune today and how this PAC tried to ignore rules and regulations to avoid disclosure, I just decided I didn't want that to become an artificial issue in my campaign. Then the mayor-elect called upon them to disclose their donors. I just thought it was for the best."
I've blogged about this group yesterday. There are some questions as to whether or not this group is connected with Mayor-elect Emanuel. Also what doesn't help is the person who heads this Political Action Committee (PAC) used to work with Emanuel. In addition to that concerns about a hole in the law where this PAC doesn't have to reveal their contributors.
