Gee, What Happened?

We'll give you three guesses. And the first two don't count:
  • Nearly 1,400 city stickers are “missing” and unaccounted for — at a potential loss to Chicago taxpayers of $134,325 — because of lax internal controls and sloppy record-keeping at a satellite city clerk's office where residents paid $3.9 million last year to purchase city stickers, passports and residential parking permits and dog licenses, a new audit shows.

    City Clerk Miguel del Valle requested the audit in 2006 and insisted that the deficiencies identified by Inspector General Joe Ferguson have since been corrected by an electronic cashiering system that “virtually eliminates the chance for any error in the cashiering and selling of city stickers.” The audit covered a 2 1/2 year period that started before del Valle took office in late 2006. It continued through 2008.

Nice to see they may have fixed it. But what happened prior to the audit?
  • As for the 1,380 stickers described as “missing” and unaccounted for during the year-long period ending on June 30, 2008, the clerk’s office believes there’s a perfectly legitimate explanation for it that has nothing to do with theft, skimming or black-market sales.
And we have some lovely swamp land in Florida to sell you, along with a bridge (slightly used) in Brooklyn.

Yeah, lets vote for del Valle, and give him the chance to mismanage 6 billion dollars. Bet his pal Ray Suarez could help him.

Would that City Clerk Miguel del Valle be the same fellow who wants to be mayor?

Uh huh, thought so. Is he related to Robert Vanecko or friends with Allison Davis?

Thanks Miguel but my vote will go elsewhere.

Oops, somebody check the count, we are missing One Thousand Four Hundred City Stickers.

Could they fit in a purse?

A briefcase?


Check the vendors on 26th street where they sell them for "Poco Dinero"!

Along with a fake S.S. card, fake D.L. and fake Insurance card.

The local Alderman and his Family are always around to help those that qualify!

City Clerk Miguel says he will find them, even if it costs the taxpayers millions in overtime to investigate this loss!

Maybe those were the ones that fell off the windshields because they would not stick?

You gotta love this city, the thievery never stops!

"Gee, What Happened?"

The usual thievery aside, this is Rahm and Chicago Politics at it's finest.

This is a skeleton from Miguel del Valle's closet coming to light, whether Mr. City Clerk had anything to do with this particular "loss" or not.

Whatever happened to that arrogant prick who was scamming people at the site at 5300 S. Cicero?

He had enough nerve to give me a hard time when I went to buy stickers and parking permits for the wife and my vehicles.

He wouldn't give me daily permits from my wife"s registration, I told him you just sold me my wides sticker, why can't I get the daily permits too? Very disrespectful.

I hope they nailed his ass but doubt it. Probably some clout heavy jagoff who is untouchable.

Curious timing that this should come out NOW, during the filing period to run for mayor, ya think?

And just a DAY after Daley says Rahm IS A RESIDENT of Chicago, like all of the questions and speculation about it should now end.

I'm sure del Valle was told NOT to enter the race, and when he did, this story came out. Otherwise we probably would have never even heard about it, since the stolen stickers are probably all affixed to the chosen ones windshields!

I'd anticipate more skeletons escaping the closet on the other candidates as we move forward until the last man standing is the Rahmfather.

The Crime Family MUST remain in power at all costs!

And did Gerry Chico live in the Edgebrook school limits? Did his kids go there on clout?
I thought you couldn't get into that school without being in the limits, even if you live one block outside the limits, the answer was NO.

Close your eyes and think very hard. Now........can you actually picture Miguelito running this city. Never heard of him, and only came out of the woodwork because he thought the time was right for an hispanic to be elected, what with all the illegals here. What's that you say..they can't vote? You forgot what city we live in, didn't you.

to 11.48: Chico's kids went to Jameson School when he lived on 020on Gregory (1 block away) and when he moved to Edgebrook, right off Central they went to Edgebrook.

Quit being a hater, he's the only one running that is worth a shit.
