The Week in Review: Pfleger Refuses to Back Down


UPDATE: Anti-violence activists get green light from state police for Dan Ryan March

The Rev. Michael Pfleger vows to shut down the Dan Ryan Expressway on Saturday to protest violence in Chicago, despite warnings by state police that participants could face arrest.

Gov. Bruce Rauner wants Arthur Jones, the Illinois Republican who is an avowed Nazi, to step down from the 3rd Congressional District race – a move that would clear a victory for incumbent Democrat, U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski.

Chicago federal Judge Amy Coney Barrett makes President Donald Trump’s short list for the Supreme Court.

Animal rights activists protest the firing of Animal Care and Control Director Susan Russell.

And the Cubs are red hot with Javier Baez’s acrobatic base stealing and Jon Lester’s sterling pitching.
