Inspector General Making Enemies

Good job David:
  • Inspector General David Hoffman’s decision to investigate mayoral son Patrick Daley’s hidden interest in a sewer inspection company that did business with the city is almost certain to widen the rift between Mayor Daley and his corruption-fighting inspector general.

    But if the mayor is miffed about it, he wasn't saying so today. In fact, Daley wasn't saying anything at all about the controversy.

Just about a month ago, Hoffman had a shot fired across his bow by Daley's review board when they re-hired a piece of trash named Joseph Annunzio even though the review board found that he had actually done the things he was accused of doing. At the time, we wrote that Hoffman just had himself publicly emasculated.

Seems Hoffman has a learning disability AND can manage to grow his balls back following Daley's impromptu surgery. That's a good thing to see and we support his efforts fully. Good luck Mr. Hoffman.

And just where did Mr. Hoffman come from?

FBI

If indeed Mr Hoffman has received his spinal transplant, and has replaced his testosterone producing organs either with medication or via Federal backup. I wish him luck.

This thread just maybe should be renamed My Clout has bigger balls than you Mayor Daley.

I had a great dream last night.

Hoffman, Fitzgerald and Jody Weis took Daley out of City Hall in cuffs and leg irons.

After being processed at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, he was stripped, dressed in a pink Ferguson safety smock to thwart any suicide attempt while in a windowless segregation cell for 23 hours a day.

He was then convicted of multiple RICO counts and sentenced to the SuperMaz in Colorado.

Then I woke up.

I can not believe that you can't read between the lines on this one and how the Daley machine is controlling it.

Daley directed the investigation be opened against his son, who is currently overseas and uninterviewable.

Daley wants it to look like this investigation is not wanted and how even the MAYOR'S SON can be looked at when wrong doing is mentioned.

I can tell you this right now. There will be an investigation. The Mayor and his Son will be cleared of wrong doing and the Mayor will be able to preach that even he and his family can be investigated without prejudice.

SCC, how you failed to see the insight on this is beyond me. Your usually right on the money.

David Hoffman is the real deal. Never lost his balls, not growing them back now. If you look at what he's done since he got in, he is amazingly consistent from day to day.

It's Hoffman's job to investigate the Mayor's son, and he will do it, no matter if the Mayor thinks he can make hay of it or not.

If Daley were my dad I would have a semi-trailer full of cash leaving the City on regular intervals headed to my off-shore account. And I wouldn't join the fucking army.

As it is I just drive a damn ramshackle beat car with 140 thousand miles on it and listen to bullshit all day from morons who want to run red lights etc. whenever they want.

If things were really fair in this city half of us would never have gotten on the job. I had one phone call in my life, I used it to get on, after that I have been a no clout SOB like most coppers.

And the best thing now is two more years to go, then adios motherfucker. I've done 27, I can do two more standing on my head, one of them on the medical if need be.

There is entirely too much complaining going on. Life ain't fair, never will be, get over it.

The 91st richest man in the U.S., a roofing company billionaire, has died after falling through his home garage's roof, local authorities said Friday.




Ken Hendricks, 66, was checking on construction on the roof over his garage at his home in the town of Rock Thursday night when he fell through, Rock County Sheriff's Department commander Troy Knudson said. He suffered massive head injuries, according to his company, ABC Supply Co.

Worked with Hoffman when he was the supervisor at the U.S. Attorney's office in charge of their gang unit. He was a fan of the police like his boss Fitzgerald. An honorable, very intelligent and well spoken person. The mayor might have gotten more than he wanted when he hired Hoffman. He clerked for Chief Justice Renquist and I believe want to Yale law. Was in private practice with major law firm and decided to enter public service. When he leaves it will be the City of Chicago's loss. The large firms will be lined to get him back. Hoffman is the type of person that should be running government, not getting run over by it.

Of all the deals going on with Daley's clan, the DV Urban Development one is the most amazing in that a small connected clique with very limited experience has been given 68 million dollars of pension money and for the most part nobody seems to be going Defcon Five over it.

This link outlines some facts.

http://www.suntimes.com/news/
politics/570056,CST-NWS-vanecko23.article

The way the square-dance works is the mayors nephew, Vanecko and his Development company don't really care if there re-development of property for low income people goes the way of Rezko's re-developements, that is in to foreclosure because by that time Vanecko and and all his consultants and builders will have already been paid.

The people that will be left holding the bag will be the investors. That's the people that have paid in to the pensions.

When Allison Davis and Vanecko made there pitch to the eunechs on the pension board they told the board, "Investors must be prepared to lose all or substantially all of their investment,".

There ought to be a law against pension money being given to politically connected people and the pensioners ought to have a vote on how there money is invested.

Here's a surprise: They will soon undergo budgetary cuts that will sit them upright (Jerry, don't fret. You will still have a job)But back to the airports: Take a close look at the commandship (attn: Mr. Weis)Is this exemplary leadership? Is this representative of Chicago's finest? Is this what you want the (millions)people who travel through our airports to see as YOUR police force? I hope not.

"There ought to be a law against pension money being given to politically connected people and the pensioners ought to have a vote on how there money is invested."

I thought there were many laws and regulations restricting and limiting the levels of risk a pension could be exposed to.

If there weren't, what's to prevent a pension board from 'investing' pension funds at any of the many craps tables in Vegas or Atlantic City?


Or in buying Lotto tickets?

Or float some or all of that pension on the streets, at the prevailing vig?

There's got to be something illegal about this deal, no legitimate pension board would ever place the funds that they've been entrusted with managing into an 'investment' clearly stating "Investors must be prepared to lose all or substantially all of their investment,".

That kind of shit is supposed to be only for the victims of bunko artists, not something one would expect to get past a pension board 'protecting' the solvency of a police labor union's pension fund.

Shit, you guys and gals pack heat AND a badge.

If this can happen to you, where the fuck does that leave the rest of us?

Up Shit's Creek without a paddle?
