IF RAHM WINS: $750 million in Chicago property tax increases, school closings coming

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 »

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. Using temper tantrums and spitballs, he and Chicago Tribune blogger Eric Zorn wrote hysterical opinion pieces last week to vent their frustration. It is sad that these obscure members... Read more »

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.

Will Rahm, Chicago Media Get Their Just Deserts?

Rahm Emanuel is a lot of things. Corrupt. Manipulative. Money grubbing. Vindictive. Crude. Hypocritical. Disingenuous. Emanuel reminds me of Danny Devito’s Oswald Cobblepot AKA “The Penguin.”  Since the day he launched his campaign for Mayor of Chicago last September, I’ve been hearing him in my head saying, “You gotta admit, I’ve played this stinking city like a...
