Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review: 11/1

On this edition of Chicago Tonight: The Week In Review with Joel Weisman, Jesse Jackson, Jr. reports to prison—twice.  Aldermen push back against Mayor Emanuel’s budget which targets cigarette smokers to help pay for $70 million of police overtime. There is little hope for gay marriage and pension reform votes when lawmakers return to Springfield next week. More trouble for the CTA as some customers charge Ventra is deducting double and triple from cards. And Derrick Rose stumbles in the Bulls season opener after knee surgery sidelined him for a year.
