Rahm and Quinn may be close to a Chicago casino deal, but are they considering labor boss Jorge Ramirez's pitch to convert the Thompson Center to a downtown gaming destination? The idea has been floated before but now it has a prominent champion in Ramirez, who acknowledges state employees and gamblers won't be able to share workspace. Out with the state and in with tourists and addicts! Anyway, everyone knows how problematic a structure the Thompson Center is. [Sun-Times via NBC]
