IF RAHM WINS: $750 million in Chicago property tax increases, school closings coming
OK, Chicago, this is your last chance to end Rahm Emanuel’s vengeful reign. Many voters are wise to how this works. We all know that Rahm’s friends in the Chicago media have been busy burying his scandals: doctored murder stats; shootings have been up not down; his broken promise of hiring 1,000 more police officers;...

RACISM? Sen. Mark Kirk's endorsement of Rahm sounds like Bernie Epton

RACISM? Sen. Mark Kirk's endorsement of Rahm sounds like Bernie Epton
Chicago’s mayoral race has all the makings of a Hollywood remake: It’s a classic political story recast with Jesus “Chuy” Garcia in the role of the late Mayor Harold Washington, Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL) in the role of Bernie Epton, and the undercurrent of racism permeating this campaign. These days, Kirk is talkin’ like Bernie... Read more »

OUTRAGE: CBS reporter injects racism into race between Rahm and Chuy Garcia

OUTRAGE: CBS reporter injects racism into race between Rahm and Chuy Garcia
Mayor Rahm Emanuel has long enjoyed the shrieking support of certain reporters in the Chicago media. From Rahm’s cooked Chicago murder statistics scandal (Tiara Groves was a homicide, not a non-criminal death investigation) to public rage over mass public school closures (50 schools in predominantly black and Latino neighborhoods), media reports critical of Emanuel are...

The next 50 Chicago Public Schools Rahm Emanuel will close

The next 50 Chicago Public Schools Rahm Emanuel will close
This is it. Tuesday’s mayoral election will either herald King Rahm’s second Chicago coronation or his national embarrassment if he fails to avoid a run-off. Run-off Rahm. I like the sound of that. The Chicago media would have you believe that Rahm has it in the bag. They would have you believe there is no... Read more »

WILLIAM J. KELLY: The media are worried my $100K donation will hurt Rahm
Chicago Sun-Times reporter Dan Mihalopoulos is apparently upset with me for donating $100,000 to my mayoral campaign, which busted the campaign finance caps in the race.

UH-OH: New poll signals run-off trouble for Rahm Emanuel with Fioretti, Garcia
A “special meeting” of the City Council has just passed Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s measure to raise Chicago’s minimum wage to $13 per hour over the next five years.

Kelly responds: Hate and media bias in NBC's coverage of Chicago mayoral race

Media malpractice is getting more and more common these days. Major Illinois newspapers are sadly endorsing GOP gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner despite his refusal to give ANY specific details about his plans to solve the pension crisis in Illinois and every other crisis. This is a disservice to Illinois voters. Journalism really is dead. The... Read more »

KELLY: Jimmy Fallon was pressured by Rahm Emanuel and his brother, Ari
Chicago, Illinois, September 24, 2014 – When it comes to Rahm Emanuel and his brother, Ari, everything is fishy. Fishier than the rotting dead fish Rahmbo once sent to a pollster he didn’t like. This latest “fishy” episode involves Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon, who after being pressured by Brothers Emanuel, announced late last week that... Read more »
