Capitol Fax: Suddenly, the mayor’s race looks very different

I tweeted this yesterday Rich Miller of the CapFax talks about the recent stories regarding the sexual abuse of Chicago Public School students. The question we have to ask now is whether or not voters will remember this when they vote for mayor next February.
Bear in mind we noted this scandal in passing last week as the Chicago Tribune published a story with a number of allegations against CPS personnel who victimized CPS students. A question from that post is whether or not this "outrage will result in political change?

Again there is a long way between now and February 2019. Those who noticed the Tribune story will be outraged - and we should be if public school students are being abused by their teachers, coaches, etc. Then again how upset will voters be once they're in the voting booths?
