Who's Clout is Heavier?

  • More than 1,500 people are trying to get a piece of the $12 million pie created to compensate victims of City Hall's rigged hiring system. One of the more unusual claims was filed by the son of a Chicago alderman.

    Dr. Jay Stone is arguing that his 2003 campaign against then-incumbent Ald. Ted Matlak (32nd) was doomed because of the formidable help Matlak received from convicted former First Deputy Water Commissioner Donald Tomczak.

  • "I don't have to prove that I would have won. All I have to prove is that I was discriminated against for political reasons. That was absolutely the case. Matlak had an insurmountable political army. Some precincts had up to seven workers" for Matlak.
So you have an aldercreature's spawn claiming that he couldn't get a fair shake because someone else's clout was bigger than his and he's claiming damages as part of that $12 million set aside to remedy his situation.

Couldn't he just violate the ethics rules like Daley's son did and not tell daddy that he was part of a connected sewer contractor?

Somehow I knew this was coming...a postcard arrived in today's mail.

"Dear Shakman Claimant:

Please be advised that the Shakman Decree Monitor anticipates receiving a ninety day extension of the deadline to review all claims, determine whether claimant is eligible for recovery and assign monetary award to the eligible claimants under the Agreed Settlement Order and Accord in the Shakman case involving the City of Chicago. The additional time required is due to the large number of claims received by the Monitor’s Office. We anticipate completing the claims process by March 26, 2008. For that reason, you may not receive a claim determination until that time.

You will be directly contacted by our office in the event we need any further information from you. There is no need to call our office.

Thank you for your patience as we process your claim.

The Shakman Monitor’s Office"

OK so there is a 90 day extension, then there will be a 6 month extension, and sometime in 2009 there will be a further extension. All the while Richie is holding onto the 12 million to buy more flower pots and hire more truck.

That is just how it works with our contract, stall-stall-stall and Richie collects-collects-collects the interest while we get pisssed-pissed-pissed off at our union reps and vote them out and start all over again.

Keep voting Democrat!

To: Shakman Monitor,

Please go to court, and demand that the 12 million be taken from the city and be put into an interest bearing escrow account. This will keep the city from stalling and the interest be added onto the claimants settlements.
