This is More Like It!

  • Mayor Daley’s son Patrick had a hidden interest in a sewer-inspection company whose business with the City of Chicago rose sharply while he was an owner, a Chicago Sun-Times investigation has found.

    Patrick Daley invested in Municipal Sewer Services in June 2003, along with Robert Vanecko, a nephew of the mayor. The pair cashed out their small investment about a year later, as federal investigators were swarming City Hall in the early days of the Hired Truck scandal.

And it looks like the Daley dynasty might end with this mayor. Scandal scandal scandal at City Hall where it always was, is, and shall ever be if the media would just open their eyes and be watchdogs for the citizenry rather than water carriers for the political class. An excellent bit of research by Tim Novak of Hired Truck fame.

And it's not just local:
  • Suburban businessman Chris Kelly, a former fundraising chief for Gov. Blagojevich and the governor’s one-time emissary on state gaming issues, was indicted today on charges he ripped off the tax man by allegedly concealing his use of his company’s money to pay debts to bookmakers and Las Vegas casinos — where he gambled millions of dollars.

    Kelly’s indictment was one of three announced today by the U.S. attorney’s office in Chicago as it continued its widening probe of the governor’s inner circle.

How soon until the indictments reach the governor's residence? Could this be Mrs. Blago's last Christmas at home for a few years? Or at least the beginnings of the revocation of her real estate license? We can only hope. This report written by the other half of the Hired Truck team, Steve Warmbir.

Pulitzer's anyone? Multiple awards perhaps?

That kid got into enough shit as the mayor's son this is not surprising. Back when he was in the city and to this day, the mayor's police detail cater to and are taxi drivers to the mayor's drunk kids. Even their friends get rides home from the mayor's police bodyguards when they are drunk even if the kids are not with them....why not pay for a cab...this isn't city business getting drunk at a bar....we are all picking up the tab for this.....what is there was a traffic accident, the city would be liable no matter what. Shouldn't the mayor's bodyguards seeing this abuse refuse these orders??
But they all know they are glorified taxi drivers, whores to the mayor and to their fellow police officers.

The Tim Novak story says,

"After cashing out at a profit, Patrick Daley — then 29 and a recent MBA graduate of the University of Chicago’s Business School — made an abrupt career change. He enlisted in the Army. He is stationed at Fort Bragg, N.C., but is to be deployed next week to an undisclosed location, the mayor confirmed this week."

Did you ever hear that when kids get into trouble, the poor ones go to jail, the rich one go to military school. That's what happened here. When Patrick got into trouble for that baseball bat beating in Grand Beach, Michigan, they needed to get him out of sight. So the Mayor arranged to get him a congressional appointment, (I think it was by John Klucynski), to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. When you sign up at West Point, you enlist in the Army, he dropped out after a year and it took this long for the Army to catch up with him.

Like all our other military, I hope he comes back safe. But he should check out that enlistment.

Many lowly POs have served in the military with much less fanfare. We veterans dont even get promotion points on tests. So whta is the big deal about paddy daley going off to war.He isnt even in the infantry any more. There are many in this dept that have lead troops in combat. Just go look at the board down at 35th Street. It is something called self-less service. They did it out of love for country not as a political agenda. It strikes me very funny that many of these same POs arent bosses on this job. Then again most dont like to talk about their combat expierences.There is even a detective in AO4 that was part of the invasion in '03. Doesnt say much about it either. You can tell these POs they are in shape and have a military bearing about them. The bosses hate them because they are a threat to their fake leadership.So stop with BS story. Talk about the real soldiers and marines. Sempre FI

Davis wants profiling ban after Chicago stop

December 14, 2007
WASHINGTON -- A black congressman who claims he was racially profiled by Chicago Police last month pushed for legislation Thursday that would ban the practice.
Rep. Danny Davis, a Democrat who represents Chicago's West Side, called racial profiling ''one of the most sinister issues that exists in American life.''
In November, two white officers pulled Davis over and gave him a traffic ticket, alleging he swerved over the center line, which Davis denied doing.

This is awesome .

Patrick Daley has finally been "deployed" from Ft. Bragg.

He parachuted in to the Spanish island of Ibiza in the Mediterranean where he landed on a nude beach among thousand of cheering revelers. He was promptly offered a plate of assorted tapas and a frosted carafe of sangria. He was then escorted to his quarters by a bevy of topless young women wearing thongs.

The above information is classified. The official news release merely stated that the son of the Chicago mayor was NOT being deployed to Afghanistan. His duties will be to electronically monitor potential terrorist chatter from Barcelona to Cannes on the French Riviera.

A congressional appointment ONLY gets you a consideration by the Board to get in. It does NOT get you a slot. Once you are in West Point, you can leave at any point, without owing them anything, until you walk into your 1st class of your 3rd year. From THAT point on the Army owns you! He left before the start of his 2nd year, he owed the Army nothing.

This is not correct. When you sign up for West Point, and IF/WHEN you graduate, you have a five year commitment to the military.

If you drop out, fail out, etc - you are just a normal Joe. You do not owe any sevice time.

**********************************

Actually you don't enlist in the Army. Upon entering the United States Military Academy you sign a contract where you agree to spend 5 years on active duty as a commissioned officer after graduation. Until the start of the 2nd year you can drop out (like li'l Daley did) without penalty. If you drop out after that point there are a number of penalties the Army can impose for violation of the contract; to include up to 4 years of active duty enlisted time and financial restitution for your education. These penalties are imposed within months.

Secondly, every time someone in the media mentions this guy, they praise him for enlisting and not using his education or connections to get a commission. The truth is that once you voluntarily withdraw from a commissioning program (like li'l Daley did) you cannot enter another program. So he can't get a commission because he is ineligible.

I will tip my hat to him for enlisting as an 11B and completing Airborne & Ranger training. His dad was no help to him there. Those RI's don't know who Daley is, much less where Chicago is. He was just another college boy yankee to them.

At one time it was probably about 75 %. Today I'd be surprised if its

So before calling anyone serving in the military a coward, put on that uniform for a few years yourself.

Also in yesterdays paper was a report on Rezko's and Blago's pal Al Chaib or Chalib who has the exclusive lease on the Subway sandwhich shops at all seven of the tollway over passes. Seems Mr. Chaib has accrued $359k in business tax arrears over the last five years, $193k in delinquent unemployment insurance taxes and $166k in late sales tax payments.

Mother of god, these Illinois politicians are so corrupt and in your face about it the Feds and the media have to walk around with there heads up there ass to NOT see it.

I've had it. I'm voting for whoever is not the incumbent. Might a pastor pimp or black race baiter get in? Maybe but then at least I'm getting screwed by somebody new. On the bright side Todd Stroger and Blago are becomming the poster children for the beginning of the end of business as usual in this clusterfuck of City and State govt.

Another 12 MILLION DOLLARD JURY AWARD YESTERDAY. In a wrongful Chicago Police shooting.

The jury was suppose to base the award on the possible lifetime earning potential of the person shot by the police and the amount of those earnings he would of shared with his mother and brother in that life time.

The City argued: Pleasance's family had sought $32 million. The city had offered $1 million, trying during the trial to convince jurors of the victim's limited potential. He was learning-disabled, dropped out of high school and did time in prison for drugs and was unemployed.


One of the jury members stated after the trial, even though the deceased would of not contributed monetary to the family (based his drug use and failure to work) we awarded the family for the loss of his companionship and love.

Hmmmmmmmmmmm The jury disregard the rules in place to award 12 million dollars and that is OK, but hammer the City and cop involve.

I also feel that his honor, da mare, had no idea the kid pulled this stunt. Does anyone think that he knew beforehand and agreed to it before the kid pulled this stunt? He is not a stupid person. He may have found out and had the kid dump it a year later, but I can't see him putting his rubber stamp on the kid's actions.I would have like to have been a fly on the wall of the townhouse when he did find out, the dad's temper is famous.

This has gone way beyond the nuts.

There is a war going on that Ive just really ignored, but it seem evident that the Police nation-wide are under attack. Channel 7 just reported that the City has paid out 27 Million to settle out law-suits.

I will with-hold comment about the officer cause its really not my point.

My point here is how does a jury come to conclusion that his life was worth 12million?

ON Topic-
Mayor denies any knowledge that his kid invested in a company that had a city contract. Hmmm would that defense work for a blue shirt? If my spouse had a contract that dealt with the city and I didnt know about her business life then on the ethics statement I checked the NO box. Then later it turns out a connection is made between the 2 of us. Then let me guess Ethics violation and what 10 day suspension?

Some of the veteran bus drivers said this wasn't true. It was Local 2251 (or something like that) which is the rails local union that said they would strike, not the bus drivers. Apparently, there are different unions...

They also said it's just Chicago politics and that it wouldn't have happened.

I like the item about West Point. I have reason to believe that he was kicked out for fighting. I also believe that he was sent there shortly after his parents were both admitted to Northwestern Memorial Hosp. (supposedly kicked the shit out of them after coming home drunk). And possibly a reason for entering the Army, avoiding fed time for a shady LaSalle St deal. But these are just rumors.

Word has it that Daley has a few former POs looking out for his kid in the army. I hear that his commander in basic training was from Chicago with strong connections to the old man.Strings were pulled 2 yrs ago to get the kid reassigned within the 82nd when the chairperson from the joint chiefs general was in town.

So the Mayor arranged to get him a congressional appointment, (I think it was by John Klucynski), to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point

No in fact it was Lt.Bill Whelehan who got him the spot but old reformed drunk Bill never got the Exempt spot that he was promised by the coward Mayor.

So the Mayor arranged to get him a congressional appointment, (I think it was by John Klucynski), to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. When you sign up at West Point, you enlist in the Army, he dropped out after a year and it took this long for the Army to catch up with him.

*******************************

I am as pissed about this nonsense as anyone, but this post is wrong. When you go to a Military Academy, you can opt out, no penalty (enlistment) up until the end of the second year. If you stay past that, and quit, you have a commitment, 2 years I think. At any rate, it sure does seem nutty that he enlisted when he did. If he made this big profit, why go into the Army-just to hide? If thats the case, he sure has been in the news-pictures at graduation from basic, periodic media updates. It's not like it was a secret. Anyway, he's a guy going over to a war zone now, and I hope he gets back safely, along with all the service people.

Patrick is not in a tough outfit.Where do U guys get this stuff from? He is in a combat support role.The fact is that he was involved in bad deal.Nothing to do with him being a soldier.See the talk about being a soldier is just the distraction that the Daley's want us to have about their son.Hero to Zero is correct.His daddy should make him return the money.

This kid has been a punk forever. Kicked out of high school. Big cover up in grand harbor michigan hate crime. tossed out of west point (I wonder how he got in with his past) Incident outside of a bar in chicago with a bouncer not letting his druk ass in the bar. And know breaking the city ordinance on declaring ownership intrests in companys doing city buisness. Not to mention all the times the mayoral guard sold there souls and went and got lil drunk patrick out of trouble. He is the paris hilton of chicago a drunk moron who is an embarresment.

I bet SNEED will still say all the right things about the littleguy and what a hero he is the sun times has been bought and paid for. The city gave them huge TIF Funds to build the plant in the 11th ward.

Let me say this this....

I pray for ALL the troops, ALL of them, Army, Marine, Air Force, Navy , Reserve, Active Duty, ALL of them.

I previously posted that if you attented West Point, and you leave before the you start year three, you owe nothing. I DO NOT know why Pat left, I just know he did, and by that, he did not violate anything.

However, getting into West Point - You only would be fooling yourself if you did not think that the old man helped him along with that.

As far as Pat in the Army, he is number one, NOT A RANGER. My fellow Army veterans know what I am talking about - he may be in an Airborne Unit, but he is not a Ranger. There is a HUGE deifference.

DO NOT THINK TOO HIGHLY OF THIS KID B/C HE IS IN THE ARMY. He spent almost 3 years in the 82nd Airborn and HE NEVR was deployed before. That is some incredible luck, or somebody was pulling strings. Ask yourself, what do you think it was? If you think luck, you probally think the sewer deal was based on his knowledge and schooling too.

Again, any Army (and even Military) veteran knows that even the lowliest REMF can not spend 3 years in an unit, a unit that is known for rapid deployments during war time, and not be deployed. How does he go 3 years before he gets deployed?? Then he will be deployed as a combat support person and not a 11B Infantry, WTF??

Explain that...is it luck or the old man?

Regardless, I still pray for him, and again, ALL of our troops, but please do not think this kid is some kind of hero. Far from it.

Signed,
Old Army Vet(Panama and Desert Storm) & CPD Blue (South Side)

Maybe he just didn't recognize his slimeball nephew, Bob Vaneckos' name when he saw it or didn't see it, whatever. Yikes.

Yup, thats the same Vanecko whos looting our pension fund with Daffy's belssing. Daffy didn't know about that either

Ladies and Gentlemen,

We are all at fault. The Daley family considers the pensions a source for their own pocket money. We are at fault. We keep blindly electing him and his ilk because they know we have short memories and can be bought of with a corned beef sandwich and a glass of green beer on St. Patrick's day

Without a doubt, the 82nd Airborne
has always been our nation's first line of defense. As a proud former member who has been in combat and proudly worn the maroon beret in the "All American Divison" out of Ft. Bragg, NC, I want to make something perfectly clear about the deployment of Patrick Daley.

We know that he will NOT be serving in Afghanistan. Furthermore, no one has said his deployment will be in any combat zone, including Iraq.

I'd give long odds that he has been deployed somewhere in Europe in a non-combat role.

Unless you can prove otherwise, don't start calling Daley critics "pussies".

Why don't the feds investigate the mayor's reserve service during the Veit Nam war? He was a no show at all the reserve meetings and never did his 6 months active duty either. His father pulled some strings and kept him from going. These are little known facts of the mayor's phony life.
