Lincoln Towing suit filed against the IL Commerce Commission today argues the license revocation should be delayed bc of the Cubs games and says the news is already “sparking chaos throughout the city” pic.twitter.com/yyVkbr96r0
Maybe Lincoln Towing should of thought about that when they were committing repeat violations.
Lincoln Towing must have been long overdue for a license revocation for this ICC to do something. Rauner’s ICC has a record for extreme deference to its “regulated” entities.
The Cubs played in DC yesterday. Never had a scheduled game at Wrigley on the 13th.

I don’t get what all the consternation and celebration is about as it concerns the Lincoln Towing situation.
Lincoln Towing shuts down involuntarily, having their license pulled. Their ever so polite and kind tow truck drivers are suddenly unemployed. Lincoln Towing’s competition then hires them to pick up the slack in towing offending vehicles, holding them for ransom and having the public directly deal with the ever so kind and polite drivers who once worked for Lincoln./snark
The cheering and celebrations on Twitter when this was announced reminded me of the drivers clapping and honking when Blago was impeached and the IDOT workers started covering his name up on the huge open road tolling signs. This story even made the Wall Street Journals A-Hed article yesterday or today.
Lincoln Towing’s real estate in Andersonville is pretty valuable.
On Twitter, my spouse @skyfullofbacon put it this way:
Lincoln Towing = Bandleader
Illinois Commerce Commission = Luca Brasi
We’ll soon know which developer just got Johnny Fontane
