Remember, Preckwinkle says too many minorities are behind bars. But then this happens:
- The son of Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle is facing a misdemeanor battery charge for allegedly kicking a man and “punching him in the face several times,” court records show.
The board president was in a South Side courtroom Monday morning when her son Kyle Preckwinkle, in his early 30s, appeared before Judge Tommy Brewer in the municipal court’s Branch 34 at 51st and Wentworth, sources said.
Neither mother nor son spoke during the brief hearing.
What kind of child are you raising there Toni?
And of course, the lawyer had this to say:
- Victor P. Henderson, a lawyer whose downtown firm, Henderson Adam LLC, is representing Kyle Preckwinkle, scolded a reporter for writing about the case, explaining it had nothing to do with Toni Preckwinkle, and said the paper shouldn’t be taking aim at her son, a private citizen.
“It’s a private family matter, it doesn’t involve the president, it doesn’t involve the president in her official duties — it is a private family matter.”
Right Toni. Mums the word. We won't tell a soul.
