CHICAGO -- Mayor Rahm Emanuel's office may have been more involved in that questionable $20 million school contract than they said, according to a new report from The Chicago Tribune.

It says the mayor's office is still refusing to disclose hundreds of emails that may implicate it in the contracting process.

The contract went to the SUPES academy where former Chicago Public Schools CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett once worked.

She and the co-owners of SUPES were indicted on charges that she steered business in return for promises of more than $2 million dollars in kickbacks and perks.

The mayor's office says it did not use its influence on the academy's behalf.
