There’s too much in that story to adequately excerpt, so go read the whole thing.
Highlights include a big ComEd contract to Power Washing Pros., which is run by a longtime ally of Sen. Martin Sandoval. Industrial Fence is another ComEd contractor. Sandoval and former Rep.

And, of course, Ald. Ed Burke’s former law firm represented ComEd in property tax matters. Again, go read the whole thing.
