The New York Times delves into what it calls “a little-known episode of Mr. Emanuel’s biography” – you know, those 36 months in which he made $18 million working as a mergers & acquisitions guy.
My favorite part is this:
“Confidants of Mr. Emanuel’s said he decided to try his hand at business because he wanted financial security for his family, before eventually returning to public service.”
Oh, the sacrifices he’s made for us!
“He had a number in his head to make enough for the family,” one of Rahm’s brothers, Ezekiel, told the Times.
And he fell just short!
