Berkowitz w/ Chi Mayoral Candidate Brown on Rahm's handling of the McDonald police shooting death & more, Cable&Web

Mayoral Candidate Dorothy Brown: What's interesting is how many police officers [12 to 14] showed up [for Laquan McDonald] and he didn't have a gun and he had a little...pen knife and he didn't have a lot of clothes on to shield...

Jeff Berkowitz: Would you give [Carol Marin & me] your pledge that you will not use any [mayoral] campaign funds for your legal defense should you ... get prosecuted...

Tonight's Chicago Metro Edition of Public Affairs features Dorothy Brown, 64, one of ten Chicago Mayoral Candidates in the February 26, 2019 election.

Could Dorothy Brown, with the name recognition that comes with being re-elected four times since 2000 as the18 year Circuit Court of Cook County Clerk and one of seven African-American candidates for Chicago Mayor in the February 26, 2019 election, give Rahm Emanuel a run for his money [At least 30 million dollars to spread around to the black ministers, union bosses and his army of election soldiers.

The program airs at 8:30 pm on Cable in 24 Chicago Metro North and Northwest suburbs tonight and in the City of Evanston tonight and twice daily over the next seven days (See detailed airing schedule, below)

The program was taped on May 25, 2019, prior to the Chicago Tribune breaking the story about the tragic and gross malfeasance and negligence that apparently permeated much of  CPS' Central office, Administrators, Principals and Teachers and the Mayor's office handling of the more than 500 allegations of sexual abuse (including rapes) of CPS students over the last 10 years. That issue will be discussed extensively with candidate Brown when she returns (soon we hope) to the Public Affairs set.

When you tune in, online or on cable,  you will see Mayoral Candidate Brown debating and discussing a broad range of issues including the shooting death (and possible) murder of Laquan McDonald by a Chicago policeman and the failure of the City to release the video of the shooting of McDonald, who was allegedly using a three inch knife to scratch some cars when he was shot to death.

Of course, there is also the question of potential gross mismanagement of the police force by the Mayor and his police chief, Chicago Mayoral Candidate Gary McCarthy, during the three year run-up to the McDonald shooting (or murder). And, the issue of the rampant growth of murder and shooting homicides in Chicago under the Rahm Emanuel-Gary McCarthy regime.   

Also discussed is the general failure of CPS to educate its students well, the grossly uneven and unfair distribution of job growth and economic development in Chicago, especially on the south and west sides of the City; and the issue of whether Clerk Brown would use any of her campaign funds to defend herself in a lawsuit-- in the event that she is indicted or prosecuted as a result of a federal investigation swirling around her office and involving, among other things, the sale of Circuit Court of Cook County Clerk office jobs.

Brown, who holds an MBA & law degree (JD) and is a CPA, has held the office of Cook County Circuit Court Clerk since 2000, having been re-elected for a fourth time in 2016. Dorothy fought and the law [The Cook County Democratic Party] and she won during her last election. Will she have to fight the other law-the Feds investigating her office  and those around her?  Dorothy Brown batted down Carol Marin's suggestion that she was running for Mayor to fund her legal defense to that investigation and possible indictment. But, Clerk Brown declined to take the oath on Public Affairs and pledge not to use any campaign funds in her legal defense [See the last minute of the show with Berkowitz, by clicking here].
