Rahm in the Lead - Chico Concedes

Early returns show a pathetic turnout and Rahm garnering 54%.

We'll update here and there - these new i-Phones are amazing.

UPDATE 08:40 PM: It's over:
  • Runner-up Gery Chico tonight called Rahm Emauel to acknowledge Emanuel's lead is insurmountable and he will be Chicago's next mayor.

    "We've elected a mayor tonight," Chico told supporters. "I want with all of my heart for Rahm Emanuel to be successful as mayor. We need that, ladies and gentlemen.”

    While Emanuel has yet to declare victory, he was well above the 50 percent benchmark he needed to avoid a runoff election.

Strap in - rough weather ahead.

Not even close. Carried black wards with almost 60%. Even north side coppers in the 41st gave him over 40%. Not to mention the low north side turnout, especially in the 41st, which is absolutely disgraceful. At least the 19th came out at almost 70% turnout. Southside city workers knew what was at stake. Northsiders surrendered as they are known to do by June every year.

City workers have lost. They have no voting power. Their concerns will be summarily dismissed.

The infidels will be punished. The punishment will be slow. And painful.

The police do not act as if they are a union.

Now they will find out what it is like not to have one.

Oh yes, they will bitch blog much. But, they do not vote. They do not vote in block. They do not vote in numbers. They bitch much. They just don't vote.

It is the final nail in our coffin. There is absolutely no reason why any politician would ever give a shit what the police think. Any pol would be a goddamn idiot to waste even one second listening to the concern of a cop.

Our concerns are nothing more than a fart in the wind.

You thought you'd been pissed on before. Now you will drink it and ask for more. Any noise you make will be silenced with more piss.

The gauntlet was thrown in this election and what did city workers do? They got on their knees and drank.

Fireman said Rahm came to firehouse and asked to talk. When the group gathered Rahm said I'm hear to tell you the truth, things are going to change, we are in dire straits. Rahm told a fireman with 25 years on - you are going to get your pension. Rahm told a fireman with 5 years on - you are not.

We are in for some aggravating times now. The sheeple have rammed Rahm down our throats. I believe Rahm will be going after our pensions. I don't think he'll be successfull in doing so but that snake is gonna try. It'll be tied up in the courts for a long time and I think, and hope and pray, that he'll strike out.
He will not be on our side. In fact I predict this prick will be worse for us than Shortshanks was. Just a year ago I would've never thought that would be possible.

If you haven't voted for FOP election yet make sure you do.
Put some serious thought into your choices. With Rahm coming after us it will be more important than ever to have strong FOP leadership that will not be easily intimidated.

If the chosen one wins IL by 1 vote or 1 million he still gets the same number of electoral votes.

Right now I am just hoping that Patrick Fitzgerald goes against Eric Holder’s wishes on his way back to New York and indicts Shortshanks. Otherwise his tenure he was a failure.

I think it is much worse than Bloomberg west. If it were Bloomberg west things wouldn't be that bad. Bloomberg negotiates police contracts much quicker than Shortshanks ever did.Also NY is much sounder fiscally than Chicago. The NY police pension is sounder and permits a greater percentage after 20 years. rarely do NYPD officers do the 29 or more that is common in our crappy and poor city. It is an environment where an officer accused and charged with shoving his baton into the analy area of an arrestee during an arrest can beat the civil and criminal cases resulting from that allegation, as happened a year or two ago. Juries in NY believe the NYPD and the public shows them some respect, even in ultra-liberal Manhattan. In our conty politicians campaign on their willingness to prosecute us crimally, as did Anita Alvarez. Chicago also pays out in lawsuits much more than NY or LA. Cook County juries hate us and Cook County Judges sentence very lightly and set bond amounts at joke levels..I wish it really were Bloomberg West. We would be in much better shape than what we have which is Rahm central. He openly attacks our work ethics, and our pension expectation. Bloomberg never did that to the NYPD and if he did it was done privately and not as a part of his campaign. We have a much, much worse scenario than Bloomberg. Tiny Dancer owes us nothing and campaigned, much as Anita Alvarez did, on what he will do to us should he win. We never had it great under Shortshanks, in fact we had it fairly poorly. Under "Tiny" things will probably be worse than better. He will likely continue the City's now accepted habit of not contributing their pension obligations. He will then blame the systems deficiencies on greedy coppers wanting to take "too much" out. The only good thing that can come out of this will be Tiny's replacing JFled.

If you watched the Rahm speech you would notice the pimple that was glued to Rahm's ass the entire time he was on TV. Yes, that "security specialist" protecting Rahm was no other than Lt. Ray Hamilton of SWAT. In true ass kissing mode Ray-Ray made sure he was Rahm's shadow the entire night.

You have no idea what you're talking about. What this is about is Rahm wanting to be the first Jewish president. Chicago is the springboard.

You really think a former president would want to be mayor of a troubled city? Look at Bill Clinton's career since he left office. Look at Carter's. They operate on a global level. They don't fall back to lesser positions.

I watch what they are doing in Wisconsin, and say what you want about the cheeseheads but they are making national headlines and make us look like a bunch of candyasses.

--------------------
Good luck getting a new job in this economy "kid". I bet you voted for rahm and his former boss so you can share some blame for your fate. Maybe you should have listened to those amusing stories from those old guys and you could have gotten a pension. Who knows maybe you would have been able to pass on some amusing stories of your own to a younger P.O. I don't think you get it. A lot of those stories are related for a reason, not all but some. By the way when we are both being interviewed at Walmart for the same job I think my amusing stories might come in handy. Revolver police know how to talk to people from the elite to the poorest of the poor. It's not because they are better than you or other younger P.O.s it's because they have done it longer. You would have learned that eventually.
P.S. Even though you wanted my job at Walmart when you come in to buy cat food I'll be very courteous. I'll even tell you an amusing story if it will cheer you up.

Oh, so you don't want his (or Chico's, etc.) platform to have any credence with the new administration? And, you also don't want your guy to have a chance at getting taken seriously for another office or mayoral run? The only thing "wasted" is the skin holding your skeleton together.

"Why be surprised- the machine runs it"


Really? 500,000 voted Rahm averted a runoff by 5% thats about 25,000 votes. If every cop and firefighter voted and got one family member to vote he would not have a lock on the mayors office, not even counting the other city workers. You could have voted for Chico or anyone other than the guy who who warned us he'd screw us financially. Many of us must like getting screwed.

I've long joked I've never seen an organization in which so many men act like women and women act like men.I respect the women that "man up" to face a tough job I don't respect the former.

It is almost impossible to find a candidate come out these days so vocally supportive of police as Chico did.

Predictions,we will all be hurt very bad financially from gold star on down. Non white shirts will be hammered with discipline. Get ready to get back to hard policing but without backing and in the end for much less compensation through concessions freezes cuts huge increases in medical premiums
and a pension reduced in one way or the other by 35% minimum.
I can't even be mad at Rahm he warned us upfront. 45th warders good job supporting Garrido now at least do the minimum and provide back up in his run-off!

I don't want to sound way out there but I think this goes back to the Olympics.

I say we cost Daley his Olympic dream. No matter how much you bribe the IO, if the local law enforcement is not on board they won't bite. The IO is responsible for shipping hundred of thousands of tourists to the Olympics. If their safety is in jeopardy, then who's fault is it?

Daley wanted the Village in the ghetto south side, and he wanted to f his malcontent cops over their contract. We fought back with the largest LE protest ever. All this had not gone unnoticed by the IO. The Olympic dream is gone, and so is the millions of insider deals....and gone is the life of Daley's friend, Michael Scott.

Maybe Daley could have bribed the IO more. Maybe he could have given us a fair shake. Maybe we should know our place and stfu. But Daley has not and will not forget. He is no amateur. He won't pull the trigger on us.

Don't be so sure all department members voted for Chico as we were led to believe they would. My very informal and very unscientific survey (asking PO's in person) indicated that a lot of black PO's voted for the Rahmster, mainly because Obama told them to. I talked to a few hispanic guys who said they were voting for DelValle, though most said they'd vote Chico. I have to figure this same dynamic was present throughout the other city departments. It had to be! Simple numerical logic dictates that had the overwhelming majority of city workers, THEIR FAMILY MEMBERS and NEIGHBORS voted as a solid block for Chico, no fuckin way he doesn't earn at least a run off. Rahm got a larger percentage than even the ass-kissing media predicted he would.
This will be entertaining. Because Rahm and Ed Burke don't like each other. Burke doesn't back down to anyone whose name aint Mayor Daley. I smell Council Wars II in the not too distant future.

The people that say that the 19th & 23rd are in trouble once Rahm gets in might be mistaken. Even though Chico carried those 2 wards the Organizatios(Hynes & Lipinski) were behind Rahm all the way. The 19th ward had a party for Rahm at the Beverly woods last week & Lipinski guys were picking people up and taking them to the polling place(the old fashion way). They just couldn't come out and help much because the residents wouldn't go along with them. They also helped Rahm just by not coming out for Chico.

Put the amount into a 401k or Roth before 90 days lapses and the money becomes taxable.

Keep in mind that it doesn't work back the other way.

COMMENT OF THE DAY!

"Get ready for Daley without the Alzheimer's."

Oh, God. Just you wait. They're saying that Rahm makes caffeine nervous.

All that smiling and hugging were for the campaign. The shrieking and cursing and banging will be filtering through the closed doors soon enough.

[The good news today was that CPD Lt. John Garrido came in 1st place in the 45th Ward...]

What makes this good news? What did Burke ever do for us? Any other cpd politicians? People in the 45th get educated then decide, don't vote for him just because he's allegedly "one of us", make sure he's the right candidate for the job.

Garrido is a good person and actually one of the few bosses left on this shitty job that has the PO's backs. I'll work for him any day. He's better for the position than the rest of these thieving career politicians, that's for sure.
