Representative Rahm Emanuel was honored for his work with CURE and his commitment to funding epilepsy research at a benefit dinner. Paul Begala was the master of ceremonies for the roast. Participants made tongue-in-cheek remarks about Chicago politics and Representative Emanuel’s training in ballet, his style of leadership, use of foul language, and his accidental loss of part of a finger. Among the speakers were fellow Illinois politicians Senator Barack Obama and Secretary William Daley, as well as Senator Hillary Clinton and Senator Obama’s media consultant, David Axelrod, a co-founder of CURE. close
