Didn't Daddy Teach You Not to Get Caught?

There's a new father/son high- (or low-) light in Chicago. Ike is following daddy William Carrothers foosteps.

It's not just that they were powerful city alderman. A father-son alderman grouping is nothing new, nothing groundbreaking as the Chicago mayor, Richard M.  has long been pursuing papa Richard J. Daley's political legacy. No, the Carrothers are joined together in history with their own numbers, courtesy of a penal system letting them both in as visitors (26 years apart) on charges stemming from just a tad too much construction corruption even by the Windy City's historic lenient standards.

That father-son thing, yeah, it can be taken too far.
