- Details. Details.
It’s all a matter of details.
Sneed hears Mayor Rahm Emanuel and wife Amy are being very judicious about personal use of hizzoner’s bodyguard detail . . . unlike former Mayor Richard M. Daley and wife Maggie, who reportedly used them ad nauseam.
“The Daleys’ son, Patrick, rarely used the detail, but it was a different story with the Daley daughters, Nora and Lally,” said a source.
>Factoids: “The detail was used to take one or the other from work/shopping/running errands/and transporting baby-sitters/ and on and on and on,” said a Sneed source. “At times, they were even used to pick up and transport Nora’s husband, Sean Conroy.”
>Hemorrhoids: “Somebody should check out the bodyguard bills chalked up at the Holiday Inn Express in New Buffalo, Mich., located at least three miles from the Daleys’ summer compound where the detail stayed on weekends — and were used at the Daleys’ beck and call,” the source said. “The bodyguards would sit and watch TV waiting for a call . . . and all that on the city’s dime.”
>A Daley detail: Sneed is told former Mayor Daley no longer uses his scaled-down detail. “He doesn’t have to,” said a source. “He works and lives and works out at his pal Judd Malkin’s 900 N. Michigan Avenue building, where the Four Seasons is located.”
>A detail detail: The Daleys’ three-man detail, which is now assigned to a “foot post” walking the beat at Michigan Avenue and Pearson Street, work 12-hour shifts and await word when Mrs. Daley needs hospital transport.
>Gulp! Sneed hears bodyguards from the late Mayor Richard J. Daley’s detail were used to clean up/dig trenches for the alewives that used to litter the beach at their Michigan compound and transport his weekend beer supply.
Well, at least they still have their dignity.
