Toni Preckwinkle was portrayed Friday as an elected official consumed with “maintaining political power” who “only seems to find her way to do the right thing when she’s caught and cornered.”

Lori Lightfoot came out swinging on The Fran Spielman Show hours after Preckwinkle fired campaign manager Scott Cisek for using a photograph of Nazis on trial at Nuremberg to attack Lightfoot.
