The Noose Tightens

We aren't sure who should get the credit, but this is a good thing:
  • City pension officials have been hit with subpoenas from a federal grand jury trying to determine how they decided to invest $68 million with a start-up company co-owned by Mayor Daley’s nephew.

    The grand jury issued the subpoenas Wednesday, nearly two months after city pension officials refused to comply with similar subpoenas issued by the city of Chicago’s inspector general, David Hoffman.

We'd like to see at least a few people head to jail over this. We'd also like to see a few of the elected Pension Board members who seem to have forgotten whom they are supposed to be representing have a sudden flash of introspection. They are likely going to be answering questions in front of a Federal Grand Jury shortly. And they are facing the voters soon.

Retired in 08 Guy says: We need to be constantly vigilant regarding the pension. The City Political Royals (CPR'S) feel that this Pot O Gold Pension Fund is actually there money. The Pension Slugs who thwarted efforts to bring this matter to light should be voted out at the first opportunity.

Does anyone find it kind of odd that everyone around Daley seems to go to jail except for him? Maybe he's giving everyone up to keep himself out of trouble like Whitey Bolger in Boston the inspiration for the Jack Nicholson character in the movie the Departed.

At least one alderman said he’s certain federal investigators heard his voice on Carothers’ secret tapes.

“All I did say is he’s a suck ass for Daley. I did ask him why all he did was bitch and whine about the guy and then carry his water. Try voting ‘No’ once in a while,” the alderman said. “I bet the guys at 219 Dearborn got a kick out of my comments.”

Really ignorant question :


but, I know nothing about pension funding and it's operation, so I ask...

Does any of the fund go towards legal expenses of the "alleged"
trustees? (Vanecko et al).

If so how do we voice our protest to the matter? If not, sorry to waste your time. Also,

I've always been told growing up that knowledge was power. It's truer now than ever.
I'd love to learn about the board and how it was proposed to function at it's inception.

Then I'd love to participate in the total transparency of the board and their actions becoming a mandate by law.

How has it been changed and for the benefit of whom?

For years scum bag Daley has under funded all the pension funds but the elected officals fund.

With the economy in dire problems he can sit back and blame the city workers for higher taxes because by state constitution he must fund those pensions. Our pension director GALLAGHER has decided on his own not to press DALEY for the city's share every year. He also dose not press the city to pay for the disabled officers as required by contract and law instead he is so generous our pension will pay their share.

It is no secret DALEY wants to get rid of all of the city's pensions,
For years the workers have taken less pay inexchange for a pension when they retire, Thanks to X-Convict Rostenkowski you as a city employee will not get anything you put into social security even if you paid quarters already.

The pension is all we have left thanks to the theiving politicans, they keep appointing middle management people all throughout the city's departments at such high pay they can't afford to pay their share into the pensions and say we can pay next year! well next year is here so pay up MAYOR!

What happened to all that TIF money you took off the tax roll and nobody ever sees or hears about? BILLIONS GONE WHERE?

I hate to say this, but when it's all said and done, I fear little will change.

Unfortunately, the pension trustees were all legally voted into their positions, which is to invest and protect our pension money. If they voted to invest the money with Daley's nephew, and our pension soared by millions of dollars, this investigation wouldn't be happening.

The only criminal charges that could stem from this, is if there is/was a conspiracy to defraud the fund in order to enrich individual trustees, or to improperly or illegally enrich DV Urban Realty Partners. I wouldn't count on Shortshanks being implicated in this one at all, and sadly, the rest of it will probably all be chalked up to poor judgement, a collapsing economy and an ill-advised investment on the part of our trustees... but nothing criminal.

Did the mayor want his nephew to become enormously rich? Absolutely.

Did the mayor orchestrate the vote from the pension trustees? Ya think?

Did the mayor want the pension fund to lose money? No but so what?

Did the mayor leave behind his fingerprints or any other evidence that HE broke the law? Nope, not likely.

So, there you have it. The Daley Crime Family gets richer, and we all suffer for it. Welcome to Chicago, The SWINDLEY City ! ! !

Trustee being an elected official's title and not representative of that official's performance while holding office. CPD will have to hold an informal lottery to select the good old street cops who will be charged with serving the arrest warrants on Shortshanks and his Aldermen. For my part, I'll be satisfied to read about how the mayor resisted arrest and forced the officers to use their tazers.

I really wonder how city government can become so corrupt.

We have to stress to the public that every penny in the pension fund is our money!! Either by direct contribution from our paycheck or owed by the city as part of their obligation to us as employees. This is the same as Social Security where the employee makes his contribution and the employer makes their contribution as they are obligated to do by law.

The money is in no way any politicians money nor is it public funds for the poloticians to use and they shouldn't even have a say in the fund at all.

@ 5/30/09 0939,

Thanks for the laugh! I haven't laughed that hard in a long time.

FOP should make their own waves or at least show their support for Shields.

Sorry but you dont get cushy county jobs like Nolan and Donahue waiting for you by telling the truth and fighting for the men and women of CPD.

I hope they tie Mark Donahue into all this scandel crap as well.

Another "daley crimianl connection", buying this piece of total scrap junk! This thing does not even run, it is down for repairs more than it flies, even better many parts are hard to find!

I talked to a CFD trustee about why they didn't cough up any funds, this was about a month after it hit the papers. He said that along with all the grief they would catch for giving those two clowns money, it was a crap proposal,so it was easy to say no. I hope that is what he will tell the Feds. I found it interesting that the Feds would look into why CFD didn't invest, one can only hope.

Too many people said "Miriam Santos for mayor" and that's exactly why Daley got rid of her. Everybody loved her. Well, almost everybody.

Shortshanks is to Chicago what Whitey Bolger was to Boston; the greatest informant the Feds ever had.

O.T.

One of our own, Det. Sgt. Don Herrion ret. will be on WIND (560 on the am dial) and roll out his latest book "Pay, Quit, or Die".
He will be on the Pinker show monday night midnight to four A.M. (tuesday morning)
He worked with worst of the worst of mobsters and other gambling scumb for most of his tour. This is a show not to be missed!
WIND is a pro police station that has a few retired cops working for the station.
The host of the show will tell it like it is and he is pretty sharp. Try not to miss this show!

When the time comes to take shortshanks into custody the Feds should hold a raffle with each ticket costing $1.00,just imagine how many coppers would buy tickets,thousands upon thousands of tickets,hell you would have a hard time keeping pace with sells.They would sellout as fast as the ink drying if not faster,you would have to rent a warehouse to store the money.

I do want to know if the trustees that are elected , along with the pol Gallagher, have a fiduciary responsibility to run the pension legit? This is where "they" may have problems.
