CHICAGO –  Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel voiced support for his chief financial officer Lois Scott this week, following reports highlighting her past business ties to former comptroller Amer Ahmad, who faces federal corruption charges tied to his tenure as deputy Ohio Treasurer.

“Lois Scott is a very good public servant and is doing a great job, Emanuel said during questioning at an unrelated public appearance Tuesday. “She has had a tremendous career in the private sector and gave that up to join the city and serve the public. And she continues to do that with my full confidence.”
