It's Official: Mayor Daley Doesn't Use Email

Long rumored, it's now official: Mayor Daley doesn't use email. The Sun-Times' Tim Novak got confirmation of Daley's aversion from the city's law department:

"The mayor doesn't use e-mail," says Jennifer Hoyle, the city's Law Department spokeswoman, explaining why she rejected a Sun-Times request to review e-mails Daley has sent and received this year.

That creates a bit of an inconsistency, as Novak notes, with Daley's new YouTube channel.
