I don't see how one could deny the ethical snarl of a wife who is a Realtor selling tens of millions of dollars in real estate based on zoning decisions made by an alderman who is also her husband. It is clear to me that such a marriage of convenience is unethical, but in Chicago it is ambiguous with lawyers calling it both ethical and unethical. I cannot believe that the alderman can deny with a straight face that he does not personally profit. So, if they divorce, the profits all go back to her? What a sinkhole.
