Who's Getting Money From the Most Powerful People in Chicago?

Today we start a four-part series taking a look at the 100 most powerful people in Chicago, per Chicago Magazine, and the political contributions they make.

Ever wonder who the most powerful people in Chicago are? And if they carry any clout with elected officials?

Chicago magazine recently published its list of the 100 most powerful people in the country’s third-largest city. We examined the most recent political contributions of these power-wielding people, and we’ll be showing you the results in four installments. Today, we’ve got numbers 100-76 on the list.

Note: If the powerful person is a political figure who raised campaign money, the amount of money that their political campaigns have collected is given.

So, without further ado, we start the countdown with the (potential) savior of the Chicago Cubs.
