Since the U.S. Supreme Court case Citizens United, unprecedented amounts of money have flown into elections. According to the Sun-Times, Mayor Emanuel has raised nearly $30 million in the last five years. In fact, almost half of the money he has raised since October of last year has come from a handful of investment bankers.
