Take a look at this: Apparently unedited, Mike Flannery's ("Web Extra, Full") interview with Todd Stroger, in which he "provides the frankest explanation yet for the pay raise to his cousin". I think the headline here is that CBS 2 Chicago is still looking for truth in Cook County politics. Pitiful, really.
(WARNING: This interview is a softball schmooze session that is painful to watch, and long. Viewer discretion is advised.)
