Mayor Richard Daley's son, Patrick, has been redeployed by the United States Army, the mayor disclosed Tuesday.
"It's a confidential thing he has to do," said Mayor Daley at an afternoon press event. "He doesn't want any major publicity where he is or where he's going. Like anything else, it's his life, it's not your life. He's not a public official. He's just another son or daughter who has taken this very seriously, and he'll do it."
He was part of a patronage scandal in 2007 after he and his cousin failed to disclose that they'd invested in a sewer company that had been awarded a city contract. The mayor said he didn't know about his son's involvement in the company.
