Daley Subpoenaed

  • Mayor Daley has been subpoenaed by the defense in the upcoming trial of developer Calvin Boender, City Hall disclosed today.

    A statement from City Hall's Corporation Counsel Mara Georges said Daley received the subpoena Tuesday. Boender, who is accused of bribing Ald. Issac "Ike" Carothers in exchange for a zoning change, had also subpoenaed 10 aldermen.

    "On Tuesday, February 23rd, my office received a subpoena from the defense for the Mayor's appearance at trial in the Cal Boender case," Georges said in the statement. "If the court finds that the Mayor’s testimony is relevant and required, he will testify."

We sense a whole bunch of "I don't recall(s)" coming from Shortshanks on this one. It sure would be nice to know how long Ike was wearing that wire and how many meetings he went to while hooked up.

"If the court finds that the Mayor's testimony is relevant and required, he will testify".

Stuttered and stammered nonsensical answers surely WON'T be relevant.

And same certainly won't be REQUIRED when Mr. Calvin Boender either: A) has a tragic "accident" while out on bond awaiting trial, or B) cops a plea after being promised something grandiose for keeping his pie hole shut after taking his medicine.

I can't wait to hear Daley's testimony. The defense attorney should try to entice him into acting like "Mayor Chucky".

I pray that the Feds have the big one on the hook but I believe this is all just one big charade.

Daley should be subpoenaed about HDO, hired truck, tearing Meigs Field apart, TIF's, the O'Hare ripoff, the parking meter ripoff, the sale of the Skyway, the attempted Midway sale, the attempt to sell the Water Department, the illicit misappropriation of general funds and Federal funds and on and on.

It will never happen though.

Maybe Daley can throw one of his temper tantrum rants while on the stand.

He might be getting subpoenaed in an upcoming lawsuit on the Bridgeport Village- the development that is falling down and foreclosed on.

With mayor Dick stuttering, spewing spittle, snickering, and misprononcing every other word,
it will be the longest testimony in history.

He's such a brilliant speaker, I'm sure he'll mesmerize the court. Maybe he can borrow Barry's teleprompter.

Fat chance daley will ever testify, unless he is on tape and the Feds reveal that. I don't believe they ever got daley to testify in any of the Burge related trials so I really doubt they will get to grill him in this either. It would be nice but not probable.

But is if happened, and if someone were to sneak a really nice small video/audio recorder in there so the public could here 42 short's testimony, whoo boy, I bet that would out do Susan Boyle on youtube.

OT - Ex-cop on probation in bartender beating fails drug test
February 26, 2010 11:57 AM

The former Chicago police officer convicted of a bar beating seen around the world has been charged with violating his probation by failing a drug test and could wind up serving prison time after all.

Anthony Abbate, 41, appeared today before Circuit Judge Arthur Hill, who set bail for Abbatte at $40,000 for allegedly testing positive for opiates.

No, he'll answer...but he'll talk in circles as usual, and the lawyers will give up trying to question him. God, I hope there are cameras in the courtroom.

Daley Inc. will make sure Boender is found with a .380 caliber pacifier or wearing a hemp necktie.

Maybe a grinning skull with mud caked eye sockets will be found somewhere on the banks of the North Branch by this time next year courtesy of Daley Inc.

Media complicity along with all consuming loyalty to a misshapen less-than-a-man who has none himself. That's how Daley Inc. survives and thrives.

Is Daley being called as an expert witness?

Seriously, if he was on the witness list, wouldn't he have already been interviewed in a pre-trial deposition?

OT - Protecting Their Own

Here's a sure sign that Chicago aldermen are petrified about next year's City Council election. Their protectors in Springfield are trying to make it much harder for anybody to run against them.

An Illinois House committee this week approved a bill that would greatly increase the number of petition signatures a candidate has to collect to get on the ballot. And if a registered voter signed petitions for two or more candidates, the signatures wouldn't count.

Bottom line: Less competition! How nice for the incumbents.

Keep an eye on this one boys and girls!

This promises to be more entertaining than the ol' "3 card monte" on the back of the #79 back in the old mass transit days. Entertaining mayhem may ensue up to and including someone getting shot dead in their ass by a not so willing (female) victim!

"...bitch shot me in my ass & took the money, that shit ain't funny!"

"yes the fuck it is my man, you're the one face down with a brand new asshole!"

oh well... We wonder if the feebs are ahead of the curve on this one?

Probably not... As usual.
