Chicago Comptroller Indicted in Ohio

We have no particular training in journalism, mostly because we didn't feel like taking that route as a career. But we do have a career of more than a few years being taught to see things that others miss, questioning strange coincidences and sensing bullshit.  

So when we pointed out a few things on 03 July that smelled funny surrounding Rahm's Comptroller, and TrueNewsUSA highlighted his shady associations with terrorism, and especially his background in Ohio, we had no idea that this was on the way:
  • When Amer Ahmad abruptly resigned as city comptroller about three weeks ago, Mayor Rahm Emanuel heaped praise on his hand-picked aide for helping him "reform government" in Chicago.

    On Thursday, Ahmad was indicted in Ohio on federal corruption charges in what prosecutors described as a more than $500,000 kickback scheme involving state investment business while he served as deputy treasurer and chief financial officer there.

    Emanuel spokeswoman Sarah Hamilton declined to answer specific questions about Ahmad, but she issued a statement saying the administration did not know about the investigation until the indictment was announced.
So the media, Rahm's media, failed to notice anything funny, odd or out-of-place about this guy's background, any one of a number of red flags that should have at least rated a question of Chicago's (and Rahm's) desire to hire him for the sensitive job of Comptroller.

Anyone else think that's kind of sad?

Funny how he abruptly left Chicago right around the time the states bond ratings was cut three notches for Illinois.

What's one of the stories read? "it's not sure presently if Rahm will appoint an outside auditor or do an investigation in house" -- or something like that. Because Rahm is on VACATION!!

Unbelievable but then again he hired McCarthy with you a horrible background. McCarthy was arrested in New Jersey after that traffic stop with his daughter. But lets hire him here in Chicago as the Superintendent of police and make him the highest paid city employee. More than the mayor himself

Business as usual, another politically appointed person under indictment, whats new there? Of course the media won't report it in Chicago because then they will be snubbed by Rahm's adinistration. Oh Dick Mell wants his daughter appointed to his spot he is vacating, no problem. Then Rahm goes on to say that its not about nepotism, but appointing quality people to the position, RIGHT! All he and the rest of the administration are flooding the media with is about how the city pension system is underfunded. Funny how Pam Zeckman is doing an expose on ISP troopers and their pensions when it just so happens they are locked in contract negotiations. Politiians suck and The media is a joke!

So what's the problem? What does Ohio have to do with Chicago? He was hired for his money "shifting" skills.

Too bad his tenure only lasted for $25 million or so worth of "shifting."

Rahm always has a "BLUE RIBBON" committee researching new hires (who are pre-picked) so he can deny any corruption and say he did not pick the person.

First and foremost as city comptroller he is appointed to our pension board. Someone should make sure this jagoff is immediately removed from the pension board. Typical democrat cronyism if you do what I want I will give you a job doesn't matter that you are a crook. Rahm is conducting a fire sale here and selling this city down the river. We will be Detroit sooner than later. It's all part of their plan to steal from the middle class and distribute the proceeds to the poorest and richest. If the middle class does not wake the fuck up your 30 years of paying into the pension will be worth nothing.

Do not expect any findings from the IG! Celia Meza (Deputy of Investigations) was at Chicago Transit Authority right before coming to the IG a few months ago. There she was on the CTA's pension board. Her mommy Carolyn-Williams Meza narrowly escaped indictment in Detroit with the Mayor. Oh yea, they are related to the State's OEIG Ricardo Meza. Nice going Ferguson, you picked a real winner! Ferguson could not promote his own pick, b/c he got complaints that too many white men at the top of his office, so he filled it with Celia Meza who is NOT ethical and a typical City player. Why did not you not put her full bio on the website, you figured it would be too embarrassing. Fran Speilman...you reading any of this? P.S. Celia Meza is currently a defendant in a Federal Civil Lawsuit filed in October 2012. Nice pick Joe!

I believe that many of the people reading this blog are sworn officers. I appreciate the work you all do.

I am not - I am a CPA. So, for once, there is a topic I can comment on. Everyone should understand that there are hundreds of CPAs in Chicago who could do a better job than this guy.

The office is Comptroller! Necessary but boring accounting stuff like processing financial transactions, creating and enforcing internal accounting controls, safeguarding assets, preparing meaningful and relevant financial reports,etc. What this guy did at Wasserstein was Mergers & Acquisitions investment banking. In other words, sell deals to whoever (out of the same pool of 100 jagoffs) is stupid enough to pay the most. That isn't accounting - it is bs'ing, golfing, going to dinner and strip joints.

So, exactly why would a City like Chicago need an M&A guy?

Oh by the way, at 38 he probably isn't personally wealthy enough to live on the salary he gets. Six figure bonuses are tough things to let go of. How do you think is making up that loss of cash?

Don't you know? If you're a taxpayer you're footing the bill for the midway airport expansion. The crane & Moreland building next to midway be will demolished in September. All of the businesses/renters have moved.

The city will be slowly taking more homes and businesses so eventually they can privatize the airport at taxpayers expense.

Well, that a stupid statement.
Of course your footing the bill for Midway expansion = the city still owns that airport!

That building at 63rd and Central was a shithole to many who rented out of there.

The city has had a plan for Midway expansion for decades, so any complaints about it should have been addressed by the neighbors years ago.

Anyone remember what the City did to the Skyway right before they signed the lease deal leasing the Skyway out? They spent hundreds of millions of bucks rebuilding it from the ground up. That was stipulated in the lease contract.

My guess is the same thing will go down with Midway. City expands and fixes everything all up in preparation to leasing it out. We get the tab for the rebuild, the new leaseholder gets a property that needs no expensive repairs and at the other end, the City gets back a pile of shit when the lease expires.

Sounds like a City of Chicago deal. Not only do we get fucked, we pay big time for the privilege of being fucked.

Thank you sir, may I have another.

You make over 74k a year, why the fuck would you be late on your water bill? Stop living outside of your means, simple answer to that, must live east of the tracks.

Hey, I have to make the lease payments on my BMW 5 series Double Turbo and the apartment payments for my side bitch and the tuition payments for my love child.

Nothing but the best, you know.

We don't need Pension Reform, we need Political Reform. Throw out every politician in Illinois. No exceptions. Now, more than ever, we need a forensic audit of Chicago's books.

32nd ward Alderman Waguespack called for a forensic audit about six years ago. Daley and most everyone else ignored him.

Rahm came in a tried to dump Ed Burke from the Finance Committee and was told in a back room why he can't do that.

Nothing in the way of genuine reform will ever happen here. Not unless al Queda blows up City Hall completely on a wednesday during a council meeting with all hands on deck..

Celia Meza has comitted perjury in court and Miriam Ratowitz was hired by Celia Meza at CTA and also comitted perjury in the hiring process. Celia Meza was fired and escorted out of Primesoure and a Severance Package (fired) from Exelon. 2012 Celia was hired at CTA HR Department and gets a promotion in less than 5 months and ends up in CTA Board gets fired again then 2 months later she's Deputy Inspector General of Investigations for Ferguson OIG how does that even make any sense. The little big fat ugly sister of Ricardo Meza, Executive Office Inspector General, No high hopes in rules and laws being follow here. Ricardo Meza investigate your little sister before the Feds do. I can give you many leads sweetheart!. Ps. New Sheriff In Town.
