Who Is Paying a Private Investigator to Snoop on Rahm?

I’m not so much interested in the news that Rahm is apparently breaking code by living in Rosa DeLauro’s basement. (h/t scribe)

Rahm Emanuel, Barack Obama’s right-hand man, lives in a basement apartment on Capitol Hill rented to him by Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro. Just one problem: He’s not allowed to live there.

That’s what private investigator Joseph Culligan discovered after asking questions of D.C. officials. A zoning administrator responded to Culligan’s inquiry and told him that DeLauro’s house at 816 E. Capitol St. NE was listed as a single-family dwelling, and as such, could not be rented out.

After all, plenty of people in DC–starting with Norm Coleman–have more legally questionable housing arrangements. 

I’m much more interested in who is paying private investigator Joseph Culligan to snoop on Rahm (and DeLauro).
