Don't be fooled by Rauner (or his GOP hacks) on Rahm recall bill

Don't be fooled by Rauner (or his GOP hacks) on Rahm recall bill
Don’t be fooled by the governor’s latest PR stunt on the recall legislation: Bruce Rauner has been buddy-buddy with Rahm Emanuel for decades and that hasn’t changed. It’s all more smoke and GOP mirrors. Why did it take Rauner more than a month to criticize Rahm in this sinister 13-month cover-up of the Laquan Mcdonald... Read more »

Thanks Rahm: Property tax hike, Uber rules will soak Chicagoans for millions

Thanks Rahm: Property tax hike, Uber rules will soak Chicagoans for millions
If you live in Chicago, you know all about the “Rahm tax” – the record $600 million property tax increase Mayor Rahm Emanuel says he needs shore up police and fire pensions, which account for most of the city’s unfunded liability. But I bet you haven’t heard about the other financial shoe to drop: the... Read more »

Angry about Rahm's $550 million property tax hike? Here's an Uber proposal

Angry about Rahm's $550 million property tax hike? Here's an Uber proposal
There’s nothing indecent about the following proposal on property tax relief but Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Uber would have you believe it is. I realize Mayor Emanuel doesn’t want to tax Uber the way he taxes and imposes fees on the cab industry. After all, his little brother, Ari, is a big early Uber investor... Read more »

KELLY TO GREG HINZ: Don't drop the ball on Mark Kirk like you did on Rahm

KELLY TO GREG HINZ: Don't drop the ball on Mark Kirk like you did on Rahm
You have to feel sorry for Chicago bloggers like Greg Hinz who feel it is their job to rewrite history. Last week, Hinz put his own revisionist spin on my cap-busting contribution in the Chicago mayor’s race.   He’s right: my $100K contribution to my campaign was a game-changer. It made sure that Rahm Emanuel... Read more »

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 »

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

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 »
