Mayor-elect's funds phone banks for Ald. Lyle

Chicago News Coop:
The political fund that Mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel formed recently to aid his allies has begun pouring money into the races for the City Council runoff election on April 5.

Emanuel’s New Chicago Committee on Monday reported spending almost $16,000 on a poll for Ald. Danny Solis‘ 25th Ward Regular Democratic Organization, state campaign-finance disclosure records show. The committee also paid about $10,000 for phone banks for embattled incumbents Freddrenna Lyle (6th Ward), JoAnn Thompson (16th) and Latasha Thomas (17th).

Emanuel’s committee has not yet reported who is making the donations that are funding these activities on behalf of council allies.
Emanuel’s committee paid Groundswell Communications Inc. of Alexandria, Va., for the phone banks for Lyle, Thompson and Thomas.
The run-off campaign is already off to an interesting start. This may be even more interesting.

Could Groundswell Communications be related to the company Worlee referenced to on his FB page?
