Fliers comparing Ald. Toni Preckwinkle to Aunt Jemima are being distributed in the South Side.

The fliers, designed to resemble parking tickets and placed beneath windshield wipers, are addressed to "Registered Voters and Concerned Citizens of Chicago" and include a photo of the 4th Ward alderwoman captioned by the phrase "Aunt Jemima On the Meter Box."
