Brotherly Love

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel told the Sun-Times newspaper that he will ask the City Council to appoint an independent negotiator to work with Lollapalooza organizers and determine whether to eliminate a multimillion-dollar tax exemption as well as any perception of familial bias.

Ari Emanuel is CEO of William Morris Endeavor, co-owner of the fest, as well as Rahm’s brother. But there’s apparently another motivation behind the proposed appointment.

According to an interview Rahm Emanuel gave to a local Better Government Association webcast, “Nothing would make me happier than to make Ari pay more money since he had the top bunk when we were growing up.”
