David Axelrod Plans the Move Back to Chicago

No sense buying in Washington D.C. if you're job there is going to end in January:
Longtime political strategist David Axelrod, who helped advise President Obama's presidential run in 2008 and is serving as communications director for Obama's re-election campaign, has paid $1.7 million for a four-bedroom, 3,320-square-foot condo unit in a high-rise condo along Michigan Avenue.

Axelrod, 57, also worked as a senior advisor in the Obama White House from 2009 until 2011, when he departed to begin work on the president's re-election campaign. Despite his time in Washington, Axelrod always has kept a home base in Chicago.
After the way Axelrod made the case for Romney on Sunday, this is probably a prudent move.

Tony Rezko probably got him an awesome deal.

Is he paying less in tax than his secretary? He IS the 1%!
