Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review, July 31


On this edition of Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review with Joel Weisman, a top Republican donor flip-flops in his support of Sen. Mark Kirk; Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the City Council get creative with taxes in an effort to nibble away at the giant budget deficit; a new study reveals that Chicago ranks first in fatal police-related shootings; Mondelez prepares to cut 600 jobs at its Southwest Side bakery; and in sports, the suddenly-surging White Sox have a successful road trip.
