Group asks Rahm not to use public money to defend Daley

August 12, 2011 (CHICAGO)

Daley may be questioned under oath by attorneys representing alleged victims of police torture. The Campaign to End the Death Penalty brought a letter to Emanuel's office Friday afternoon.

Daley, who was once state's attorney, may have to testify in a lawsuit against former police commander Jon Burge.

The letter argues that Daley was a county employee at the time and no city funds should be used to defend Daley in any way.
