Chicago Mayor Richard Daley hangs up his crooked hat

Nope, he won’t get to close out his tenure with the Crony-lympics, but Chicago Mayor Richard Daley is riding off into the sunset.

Via the Chicago Tribune: “Mayor Richard Daley says he will not run for re-election in 2011. ‘The truth is I have been thinking about this for the past several months,’ Daley said at a City Hall news conference. ‘In the end this is a personal decision, no more, no less.'”

He leaves behind bankrupt government coffers, crime-infested public housing, and one of the “most stressed cities” in the nation.

Time to make way for another corruptocrat (paging Rahm Emanuel)!
