Pretending to care about the little guy:
- Mayor Rahm Emanuel was forced soften his plan to protect consumers against financial scams to satisfy businesses concerned about being stripped of their licenses for mere technical violations.
But the mayor apparently is not backing down on his crackdown on alleged fraud by those who help Chicagoans file their annual income tax returns.
- “These businesses are scamming honest Chicagoans under the guise of helping them,” Emanuel, who was on jury duty at the Daley Center on Tuesday, was quoted as saying in a press release.
“There is no place in Chicago for businesses to take advantage of residents — and I absolutely will not stand for it.”
Because as you know, Rahm hates the competition, and if there's any "taking advantage of" Chicagoans, Rahm want to be sure it's the government.
