Scandals put City Hall in a spin
If Mayor Daley's revolving door takes any more turns, it might go into permanent spin mode.
Thirteen Daley Cabinet members have either left or been shown the door in recent months in a corruption-induced housecleaning by chief of staff Ron Huberman.
At last count, no fewer than 10 city department heads had the word "acting" in front of their titles.
The mayor has an acting inspector general, acting directors of personnel and intergovernmental affairs and acting commissioners of three departments at the center of the Hired Truck scandal: Streets and Sanitation, Water Management and Transportation.
There are also acting commissioners of the Health, Buildings and Construction and Permits departments.
