Rahm already has amassed a giant warchest that outsizes any of his rivals' by an order of magnitude. he's probably betting that he doesn't need a whole lot more in the money department. what he does actually need is some good old fashioned progressive red meat rhetoric to throw to the minority voting blocs in the city.

besides, i agree with sentinel that this issue is either forgotten about or severely watered-down after the election is over. rahm has probably said as much behind closed doors to his friends in the development community.
